Prada SpA (OTCPK:PRDSY) is in talks to make a blockbuster listing in its home city, per Bloomberg News.
The luxury fashion house is hoping to raise $1B from a second listing in Milan, the outlet said. Goldman Sachs is reportedly already working on preparations for the listing. The dual listing will also reduce risks of the current 20% listing in Hong Kong, which helped the company raise $2.1B in 2011.
Further details on the size of the listing or the impact to the Bertelli family’s 80% stake were not disclosed in the report. However, sources told Bloomberg that the majority shareholders are not keen to relinquish their stake.
