4. Puig

It is a perfumery founded in 1914 in Barcelona that covers cosmetics, fashion and skin care. In 2023 it had a turnover of 4,304 million euros.

It debuted on the Spanish stock exchange last week at a price of €24.5, giving it a market capitalization of €13.92 billion, making it Europe's largest IPO in 2024.

Its debut could serve as a "barometer" for other companies that are ready to go public, such as Europastry, Tendam and Hotelbeds.

At its debut, only institutional investors could buy shares, but retail investors can now do so as well.

The company aims to distribute 40% of its net profit as dividends to its shareholders.

Admittedly, the exit price was at the high end of the range, reflecting the company's positive outlook for its future. However, the exit price represents a 15% discount to the industry average in terms of enterprise value.

The market estimates that a "reasonable discount" could be 20% versus France's L'Oreal or a 3% premium to the sector, which would mean it would be attractive as long as it is below €31.

In its favor:

  • Looking ahead to this year, the company expects to expand further, especially in the Asian market.
  • In 2023 it turned over €4,304 million, achieved an ebitda of €849 million (+33%) and posted a net profit of €465 million (+16%).
  • The Puig family's retention of a majority stake and voting rights ensures continuity in management, generating confidence for long-term investors.
  • Its solid position in the market.
  • Its strategic acquisitions.
  • Its pricing strategy.

Analyzing its market prospects is still too early, but we will follow it closely.
