Revving up for IPO

Aston Martin announced plans to list on the premium segment of the London Stock Exchange, as the luxury car maker – which has been bankrupt seven times – outlined plans to almost double annual production to 14,000 units in the medium term. The offer will be open to qualifying institutional investors following a secondary share sale by existing shareholders, although Germany’s Daimler AG will retain its 4.9 per cent non-voting stake.
