MILAN — Moncler’s second attempt at an initial public offering is taking shape.
A well-placed industry source said the Italian brand has chosen a pool of banks including Bank of America Corp., Mediobanca, Banca Imi, J.P. Morgan and UBS to manage the IPO. “This is what [chairman and chief executive officer] Remo Ruffini has always wanted to do. They’ve been ready for four years,” said the source.
Another source confirmed that Moncler “is just waiting for the right window.”
Moncler shelved its IPO in summer 2011, but Ruffini has repeatedly said a listing remains the company’s goal — an objective confirmed in March as parent company Eurazeo identified this as the most likely exit method either at the end of this year or in early 2014.
“I was touched by the fact that she lost her father, really before his time, and it was a real shock. She had two young children, she was married and she was expecting that she would have her own life for a good 25 years,” said Claire Foy about playing a young Queen Elizabeth in Netflix’s The Crown.

“It transcends the genre that is you think of a sci-fi show — you don’t expect it to be so profound or emotionally riveting,” Evan Rachel Wood told WWD of her Emmy nominated role in Westworld. styled by @samanthamcmillen_stylist 📸 @emmanmontalvan #emmys2017 #wwdeye
