Aston Martin will very soon become the first British-based automaker to be listed in London for years, following the sale of such brands as Jaguar, Land Rover, Mini, Bentley and Rolls-Royce to foreign owners. The IPO could see the company valued at up to 5 billion pounds (USD6.38 billion), internal sources have said.
Aston Martin sells roughly 25% of its cars to the EU and operates its only plant in Britain with a second one due to begin operations in 2019. The recent Aston Martin success has been partly due to its one new model launch each year program with 7 new models in its current lineup and each model will have a 7-year product lifespan. This means there will be 7 new models in the next 7-years.
