What will happen to Birkenstock’s shares after the IPO?

George Sweeney

Finder expert George Sweeney answers

It’s impossible to say for sure. There will certainly be plenty of volatility on the first day of trading and this will likely settle. In its IPO filing, Birkenstock stated it would use the funds raised to pay off debt.

This is a sensible strategy, but not the most exciting. The business will need to work on its bottom line and become more profitable and less reliant on debt if it wants to succeed and hit the ground running with positive share price performance over the next few years.

What is Birkenstock’s business model?

Birkenstock is a German shoe manufacturer that’s been around for nearly 250 years, and its business revolves around the design, manufacture, and sale of distinctive orthopaedic sandals with cork sandals. It also now makes an extended range of footwear options.

Unlike many shoe and fashion companies, all of Birkenstock’s production is in-house, owning every step of the production line – all done in Germany.

When is the IPO date expected?

The Birkenstock IPO is due to take place on Wednesday 11 October 2023 (although this could change). Keep your eyes peeled because it will come running along quickly.

What is Birkenstock’s price target?

The expected share price range for Birkenstock (BIRK) stock will be between $44 and $49. Birkenstock is hoping to sell at least 32 million shares, raising around $1.58 billion at the higher end of estimates. This would give Birkenstock a total valuation in the region of $10 billion (around £8.2 billion).
