Jimmy Choo eyes London listing

Luxury footwear label Jimmy Choo could be set for a £1bn float on the London Stock Exchange.

Swiss owner Labelux is reported to have held meetings with bankers in a bid to create extra funds to aid expansion into the Asian market, according to The Sunday Times.

It has been reported that Labelux, which bought Jimmy Choo in 2011 for £525m, may float a minority share.

A Labelux spokesman said: “Jimmy Choo is a clear success story with strong momentum. We regularly review the status of our investment. However, no decision has been taken as yet.”

Etailers Boohoo and Koovs went public last week, while Fat Face and House of Fraser are expected to float later on this year.
