French software company Planisware has launched an initial public offering (IPO) recently valuing it at €1.11 billion. This marks the largest IPO on the Euronext Paris stock exchange in the last three years. The company jumped as much as 33% on its trading debut in Paris after raising €278 million.

IPO details 

Planisware postponed IPO plans in October 2023, citing a deteriorating market environment that alerted caution among investors. The expected valuation is at the lower end of the €1.11 billion to €1.25 billion range that the company was aiming for last year. 

As per the company’s statement, it plans to offer up to 15,085,000 ordinary shares for €16 each, accounting for €241 million. Notably, the same was €16-18 per share in October. These shares are expected to start trading today with the company’s founders retaining a majority stake.
