A month after Saxo Bank terminated the merger deal with blank-check company Disruptive Capital Acquisition Company Limited (DCAC), the Denmark-based Group says there is still a chance for an IPO.
Saxo CEO, Kim Fournais, told Reuters that the company may give outside investors a new chance to cash in and this could come as a new IPO in Copenhagen.
There’s always been a wish to eventually do a listing of Saxo.
He also added that the bank is not in a hurry to do it as “market turmoil persists” but hinted that it still could happen as early as this year.
According to a source familiar with the matter, Saxo can also consider private share placement as shareholders Chinese automaker Geely (0175.HK) and Finnish insurer Sampo (SAMPO.HE) are looking to reduce their stakes. Fournais said that the company will keep “all options open” but the plan for now is to go public.
