Equita assisted Racing Force

Milan, 15 November 2021 – Racing Force – one of the global leaders in the field of motorsport safety equipment – announced the final results of the institutional placement. The latter has been successfully completed with a final offer price of Euro 4.5 per share. Total proceeds amounted to Euro 31 million (including the over-allotment option).

The final order book was truly international and more than 6 times oversubscribed, with allocations highly concentrated and skewed towards long-only accounts.

Racing Force will debut with Euro 107 million market cap. Free float amounts to 29%, including the over-allotment option.

Equita assisted Racing Force as Sole Global Coordinator, Sole Bookrunner, Euronext Growth Advisor and Specialist. The IPO, completed successfully, thanks to the close collaboration between the Global Financing team and the trading floor of Equita, is the first listing worldwide in the motorsport safety equipment niche and the second-largest IPO on Euronext Growth Milan in 2021 (excluding SPACs).

The Group recently assisted several issuers, including Defence Tech, REVO, and ALA (Advanced Logistic for Aerospace) with their IPOs and OVS, Alerion Clean Power, FNM, WIIT, Italian Wine Brand, Newlat Food, and Webuild with their bond placements.
