  • F1 Float Doesn't Fly In '12

    Bernie Ecclestone said that F1's flotation is on hold until market conditions improve.

    F1 CEO Bernie Ecclestone has "revealed that the much-anticipated $10B flotation of his high octane motorsport series will not take place until market conditions improve," according to Sylt & Reid of the London TELEGRAPH. F1 "was expected to list in Singapore, but the IPO never got the green light from F1’s board due to the euro-zone crisis." Ecclestone said, "The float won’t happen this year, but next year it will if the markets change. No IPOs have gone through, only [football club] Manchester United. I was surprised that they let it go through at the price. First the price and secondly the amount."
