(Bloomberg) — Porsche AG attracted so much demand for its landmark 9.4 billion-euro ($9.1 billion) initial public offering that almost half the investors that put in orders were not allocated shares in the deal, according to people familiar with the matter.

The IPO, Europe’s largest in over a decade, received orders from about 650 investors, but half of them were “zeroed” out — parlance for requests for shares that aren’t fulfilled, the people said, asking not to be identified discussing confidential information. A spokesperson for Porsche declined to comment.

Demand of this scale is rare for an IPO market that has been closed for much of the year, buffeted by surging inflation, rising interest rates and heightened market volatility.

Even Porsche’s massive offering is unlikely to inspire other issuers to test Europe’s weak appetite for new listings, bankers have warned.

The manufacturer of the 911 sportscar rose as much as 5.2% to €86.76 in Frankfurt — against a decline as deep as 2% in Germany’s benchmark DAX index, compared with the offer price of €82.50 apiece.

About 75% of Porsche’s IPO was taken up by 20 investors, the people said. Four cornerstone investors — Qatar Investment Authority, Norway’s sovereign wealth fund, T. Rowe Price and ADQ — together accounted for almost 40% of the offering.

Porsche’s blockbuster IPO is no ‘gamechanger’ for Europe’s battered markets

Porsche’s landmark listing is defying market turmoil giving a welcome boost to a battered pipeline of share sales but the deal is unlikely to open the floodgates, bankers and analysts say, with European listings facing their worst year since 2009. As market volatility persists amid Europe’s energy crisis and worsening economic forecasts, companies are holding off on their plans to go public. Volkswagen’s decision to press ahead with the IPO of Porsche is perceived as a one-off deal whose success is closely linked to the appeal of its brand.


Investors switch into Porsche AG from Volkswagen on debut day

MILAN (Reuters) -Porsche AG shares rallied on their Frankfurt market debut on Thursday as traders dumped holdings of its controlling companies to grab a slice in the newly listed supercar manufacturer. The listing of Porsche AG, under a trading code that includes the 911 number in a nod to its most famous model, defied turbulent markets to give the car brand a value north of 75 billion euros ($72.78 billion). Traders said some investors that bought Volkswagen and Porsche SE to play a potential IPO boom might be unwinding their positions and switching into Porsche AG, which was trading not too far from the offer price.

Porsche shares debut amid market tumult

STORY: Porsche roared onto the stock market on Thursday (Sept 29), defying market turmoil. The luxury car brand debuted with a valuation of almost $72.5 billion. That was at the top end of the price range set by parent firm Volkswagen. Amid a big tumble for broader markets, Porsche proved the exception.Its share were up over 4% after the first hour of trade.The sale is one of Europe’s biggest ever listings. It values Porsche at almost the same price as VW, and ahead of rivals like Ferrari. In all it should generate around $19 billion for Volkswagen.That’s likely to be used to help fund its shift to electric cars. Porsche CEO Oliver Blume hailed Thursday’s debut: “We are convinced: there is more inside us. We will achieve independence and even greater entrepreneurial leeway. We want to become even faster, more flexible and more focused. Porsche will be able to continue to profit from the synergies within the Volkswagen Group.” Some investors had questioned whether now was the right time for the listing, with markets facing turmoil over the Ukraine war and resulting energy crisis. But VW says it’s actually the perfect moment, with fund managers sorely in need of a stable and attractive stock to invest in. The Porsche and Piech families will remain big players, with a stake of 25% plus one share – effectively a blocking minority.
