Oatly IPO rumors are circling as sources claim the company is in talks to go public . As it’s a well-established name in the plant-based food industry, investors want to know whether the rumors about Oatly stock are true. While Oatly ’s headquarters are in Malmö, the company’s Production & Development Center is located in Landskrona. The company also recently built a million plant in New Jersey. It produces 750,000 gallons daily of the company’s main ingredient: oat base. Oatly also intends to build more factories in Asia, Europe and the U.S. to expand its global presence.

Oatly stands to benefit from the road paved by Beyond Meat, who had first-mover advantage but also the burden of being the first to educate U.S. investors on the merits of plant-based foods. That may be one reason Oatly was able to land large private equity firm Blackstone Group BX as its lead investor. Last year’s market value for plant-based foods was around .5 billion, according to the Plant Based Foods Association, which noted that 60% of Gen Z wants to eat more plant-based foods. For the four weeks following the onset of the coronavirus in mid-March, notes the association, plant-based food

Danièle Gilbert was, according to the magazine, "facing serious financial problems". The former host having heard of these rumors hastened to refute them. She gave an interview to Gala.fr in order to restore the truth. The economic crisis linked to the Covid-19 pandemic affects all circles.

You've probably seen Oatly in grocery stores, and you may even have ordered it in your latte. But how much do you really know about the most popular oat milk company on the block? This is the untold truth of Oatly . Fast forward to 2020, and the reality of milk has fundamentally shifted. The vegans, the lactose-intolerant, the food Instagrammers all demand something different — and they can have it. Perhaps the first notable shift in the milk landscape was with the advent of the widespread use of soy milk.

Still, Oatly is not without its detractors. Last fall, it also faced a small boycott after news circulated that it sold a 10-percent stake to the Blackstone Group, a private equity investment firm that has its hands in everything from razing the Amazon rainforest to buying up single-family homes and raising prices Still, Oatly ’s potential IPO is one more example of the rise of vegan products that mimic the flavor and texture of meat and dairy, such as Impossible Foods and . For example, Taco Bell in the UK announced that it would be replacing its vegetarian-favorite potatoes with a plant-based meat made from, you

Oatly - a brief group profile

Rickard Öste and Skånska Lantmännen founded Ceba Foods AB in 1994, the Oatly brand was introduced in 2001, after which - another five years later - the company was renamed. Today the head office is in Malmö in the south of Sweden. Oatly's plant-based products now fill store shelves in more than 20 countries in Europe and Asia. The owners include the founders and a few others Verlinvest, China Resources and Blackstone.

The sale of shares in the latter investment company aroused criticism, as Blackstone is also said to be invested in companies that are accused of environmental degradation. However, Oatly describes itself on its website that it identifies with the points of health and sustainability. For example, the Swedish group started a petition in Germany in 2019 aimed at labeling foods sold in Germany with their carbon footprint.

You know, THAT SONOMA DUMPSTER THING I covered in depth. Rumor has it that AFTER throwing away the legit Trump ballots and filling them in on fake ballots, they found out about the watermark and then threw away the fake ballots too and now they are over 7 million ballots short. This time, we have testimony and proof the U.S. postal service back dated disqualified ballots that were dumped in bulk AFTER election day and then counted as legit ballots. Another nuke, right in the heart of the DNC. This time was the only time in history where so many states simultaneously quit counting ballots in a way

Veggie shares a rarity on the stock exchange

After Beyond Meat was received with open arms on the stock exchange, one should now assume that the path to the stock market has been set for other plant-based food companies. But so far Beyond Meat has held the status of the only company with a pure veggie range. Because investors have been waiting for the IPO of competitor Impossible Foods for some time.

Since last fall, rumors of a possible IPO of Oatly have surfaced again and again. Oatly would be the second company to focus on plant-based products, but the first on the exchange to produce dairy alternatives. Oatly already has prominent support. Forbes reports, among others, by Oprah Winfrey and Natalie Portman. A total of 200 million US dollars are said to have been collected from investors in June 2020 and a valuation of two billion US dollars was achieved.

Rumors about the IPO of Oatly

Already in September 2020 there were initial speculations about a possible IPO of the Swedes. At this point, communications manager Linda Nordgen threw the rumors off for what they are: "Just rumors," she told vegconomist. But in January of the new year, these rumors germinated again. CNBC reports, based on internal sources, that Oatly is planning an IPO in 2021. The US broadcaster writes in the report that insiders assume that an IPO could earn one billion US dollars. However, the company valuation is particularly geared towards how companies are doing in view of the uncertain corona situation, but could be significantly higher than the valuation in summer 2020. In addition, the US investment bank Morgan Stanley is said to be involved in Oatly's IPO plans.

So far, however, there has been no official announcement or confirmation from the company of the alleged plans to issue shares to the public. Finanzen.net editors
