MILAN — Moncler presented its initial public offering to the financial community on Monday, ahead of the brand’s first day of trading on the Milan Stock Exchange, which is expected on Dec. 16.
An upbeat and visibly pleased Remo Ruffini, chairman and creative director of the company, who had shelved the project to publicly list the company in 2011, said “the mood today is better” remembering concerns over a crisis in Greece and the euro currency at that time. He called the listing “a tribute to success, without arrogance, but with humility and pride.”
