SpringerNature hurries 7 billion euro Frankfurt listing

(23 February 2018, Reuters) SpringerNature, the publisher of science magazine Nature, has brought forward a listing which may value it at more than 7 billion euros ($8.6 billion) including debt, to reduce the risk from volatile stock markets, people close to the matter said.

The company, which also publishes Scientific American, is planning to announce its initial public offering (IPO) in May, with a Frankfurt listing slated to take place four weeks later, they said, adding that originally plans had been for a July listing.
