Sweden’s Hemnet Targets Valuation of Up to $1.4 Billion in IPO


Sweden’s biggest online platform for property classifieds, Hemnet Group AB, is targeting a valuation of as much as 11.6 billion kronor ($1.4 billion) when it launches an initial public offering in Stockholm later this month.

The IPO price range is expected to be 95 to 115 kronor per ordinary share, equating to a market value for all the listed ordinary shares of 9.6 billion to 11.6 billion kronor, the company said in a statement on Friday evening.

The planned listing on Nasdaq Stockholm corresponds to 17.7% of the company’s ordinary shares, and the first day of trading is expected to be April 27, according to the statement.

“We have seen a very positive interest in Hemnet’s upcoming IPO and it is clear that investors value our scalable business model,” Hemnet’s Chief Executive Officer, Cecilia Beck-Friis, said.

A fully subscribed offer at the midpoint of the price interval totals proceeds of about 1.9 billion kronor, rising to 2.1 billion kronor if an over-allotment option is exercised. A prospectus will be published on Monday, the company said.
