Positioned along the entire value chain, from sourcing to refurbishment and distribution, Largo aims to become a benchmark player in the field of responsible refurbishment.

The admission and issue price of Largo shares was set at €13.35 per share. Market capitalisation was €46.1 million on the day of listing. The offering raised €22.85 million altogether.

The Offering was a success with international institutional and individual investors. The Global Placement was oversubscribed 2.8  times at the Offer price and the Open Price Public Offering was over-subscribed 9.2  times.

Christophe Brunot and Frédéric Gandon, Largo’s co-founders, commented: “We are very pleased with the success of the operation. Largo's positioning, at the heart of the circular economy and 100% made in France, has convinced many investors, both institutional and private. The reconditioning market is enjoying a positive dynamic that is supported by structural societal and environmental trends. The funds raised through the IPO will now help us to consolidate our positions with distributors and to deploy growth levers that will enable Largo to become a key French player with telecom operators, to develop our e-commerce sales channel and to distribute a B2B offer to support companies' CSR policies. This is a new page in the history of Largo and we would like to express our sincere thanks to our teams, our partners and our investors, whether they are joining us now or have been with us since the beginning of our adventure.”
