Ferretti is controlled by Shandong Heavy Industry Group, the parent firm of Weichai Power (HKG:2338).
It secured five cornerstone investors, with $129.5 million worth of subscriptions between them, to anchor the forthcoming share sale. Hainan Free Trade Port and Haifa Holdings are among its cornerstone investors.
The company expects to determine the listing price on March 25 and disclose the allocations on March 30. It intends to start trading on the Hong Kong bourse on March 31.
Funds raised from the listing will be used for the expansion of product portfolio and service offerings, marketing activities and working capital, among others.
