Dino Polska SA has filed its prospectus with the Polish Financial Supervision Authority (KNF) and plans to conduct a public offering and debut on the Warsaw Stock Exchange in the first half of 2017.
Only existing shares, belonging indirectly to Polish Enterprise Fund VI, managed by Enterprise Investors, will be offered in the public offering. The offering is planned to be directed to both Polish and foreign investors.
The Dino Group is the fastest-growing chain of proximity supermarkets in Poland in terms of average annual rate of growth in the number of stores in 2010–2015. In 2015 the Dino Group was also the second-largest in number of stores and in sales revenue terms chain of proximity supermarkets in Poland. By the end of November Dino chain includes 608 stores, located mainly in western Poland.
Szymon Piduch, CEO of Dino Polska SA, commented: “In recent years we have grown very dynamically, enlarging our chain from about 111 stores in 2010 to 608 by the end of November. This makes us the fastest-growing chain of proximity supermarkets in Poland in terms of average rate of growth in the number of stores and sales revenue in 2010–2015. We have further ambitious growth plans, calling for a denser network of stores in western Poland where we are already present, as well as expansion to the north and east of the country. We are encouraged by the market environment and good forecasts for the proximity segment in which we operate, with projections for average annual growth in sales through 2020 of 8.2%. Together with the shareholders, we determined that the present stage of growth is a good moment for the Company to go public. The final decision regarding the public offering, including its schedule, depends on a shareholder of the seller and the market situation. The public offering of Dino Poland will probably be the biggest IPO planned in 2017.”
