NEW YORK, Dec. 02, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- XP Inc. today announced that it has launched its initial public offering of 72,510,641 of its Class A common shares, 42,553,192 of which are being offered by the Company and 29,957,449 of which are being offered by certain selling shareholders (the “Offering”) pursuant to a registration statement on Form F-1 filed with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (“SEC”). In connection with the Offering, the selling shareholders intend to grant the underwriters the option to purchase up to 10,876,596 additional Class A common shares. The estimated price range for the Offering is US$22.00 to US$25.00 per Class A common share. XP has applied to list its Class A common shares on the Nasdaq Global Select Market under the ticker symbol “XP.”
XP selected Nasdaq as its listing venue because it is recognized for bringing together the world’s leading technology companies. An initial public offering in the United States allows XP to adopt a super voting structure, which is essential for the XP Controle Participações S.A. (“XP Controle”) partnership to keep control of XP, ensuring its continued independence as a public company and aligning XP Controle’s interests with XP’s millions of current and future customers. A U.S. listing requires XP to comply with higher governance standards and provides investors and clients with greater transparency of XP’s business. By accessing new markets and strengthening its capital structure, XP continues to strengthen its core mission: to democratize millions of Brazilians’ access to the best financial products and services, always guided by full transparency and focus on its customers’ needs.
