The Amsterdam-based company, which owns the Bols liqueurs and spirits brands, said today the money will go towards refinancing and to “further strengthen its financial position”. Lucas Bols did not give a schedule for the IPO but said it will take place “in the near future”, subject to market conditions.

Huub van Doorne, CEO for Lucas Bols, described the move as “the next logical next step in the development” of the company after van Doorne led a buyout from Remy Cointreau in 2006.

“The company is now fully prepared for a standalone future with an enhanced capital markets profile to support our international growth strategy,” van Doorne said.

Lucas Bols claims that Bols is the world’s oldest distilled spirits brand, dating back to 1575. The company has more than 20 brands across a range of spirits products, sold in around 110 countries.

The IPO will be held on the Euronext Amsterdam exchange and will be made available to institutional and retail investors in the Netherlands and to “certain” institutional investors in other jurisdictions.
