Details Behind the Lumenpulse IPO
Company applies to list shares publicly for the second time in 7 years
Founded in 2006, Lumenpulse Inc. quickly became an important brand in specification lighting products. The company, now known as LMPG, Inc., includes many specification brands and has grown to become a major player in various lighting categories with 2019 revenues exceeding $300M CAD.
The company made its first shareholder Initial Public Offering in 2014. In 2017, after three years of public trading, a group led by Founder, President & CEO, FX Souvay, took the company private while Power Energy Corporation, a wholly-owned subsidiary of Power Sustainable Capital, acquired the outstanding common shares of Lumenpulse for $590 million in cash.
LMPG has recently announced the filing of an Initial Public Offering to once again take the company public. It is expecting the IPO to be priced between $15.00 and $17.50 CAD per share, for gross proceeds of $300 million CAD. Today, $1 CAD = $0.83 USD. The company applied to list shares on the Toronto Stock Exchange (the “TSX”) under the symbol “LMPG”
