Reynolds Wrap Maker Backed by Rank Group Files for U.S. IPO

(Bloomberg) -- Reynolds Consumer Products Inc., the maker of Reynolds Wrap aluminum foil and Hefty trash bags, has filed for a U.S. initial public offering.

The company in its filing Friday listed the size of the offering as $100 million, a placeholder used to calculate fees that will likely change. The number of shares and the price range for them haven’t been decided yet, the company said in a statement.

The company, backed by New Zealand billionaire Graeme Hart’s Rank Group Ltd., said in a statement in September that it had confidentially submitted its IPO registration to the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission.

Reynolds planned to seek a valuation of $7 billion in the offering, people with knowledge of the matter said in October. For the nine months ended Sept. 30, Reynolds said it had net income of $135 million on revenue of $2.2 billion, according to Friday’s filing.

Companies have raised $2.93 billion in 31 IPOs on U.S. exchanges so far this quarter, compared with 29 raising $5.78 billion during the same period last year, according to data compiled by Bloomberg. Canadian waste management firm GFL Environmental Inc. this month canceled an IPO that targeted a listing of as much as $2.1 billion. That followed the spectacular flop of WeWork’s share-sale plans, which were officially withdrawn in late September.

The Reynolds offering is being led by Credit Suisse Group AG, Goldman Sachs Group Inc. and JPMorgan Chase & Co. The company, based in Lake Forest, Illinois, plans to list its shares on Nasdaq under the symbol REYN, according to the filing.
