Energica announced the company is launching an IPO this weekend through AIM Italia, Borsa Italiana, and (naturally) appearing at the Milan EICMA 2015 show with the EGO and the EVA. AIM Italia, according to the London Stock Exchange Group's site, is specifically set up for small, high potential growth, relatively high risk investment:
AIM Italia is the Multilateral Trading Facility of Borsa Italiana devoted to Italian small and medium enterprises with high growth potential. Such firms are offered the opportunity to access investors focused on small-caps in an efficient manner. The market model is normally characterized by an admission-to-trading phase without a prospectus (by means of a private placement or an exempted public offer) while retail investors have access to the secondary market. Taking into account the risks associated to the investment in small and medium companies, the access is recommended only to persons with high financial knowledge and experience.

The company also brought Giancarlo Minardi on as a board member, a veteran of the Italian racing, automotive industry, Formula One, racing, and Fiat. ...and racing. Racing? Energica? Dare we hope and dream?
Energica isn't announcing any new features or models for the show, to our knowledge, but has delivered on the promise to, uh, deliver - mid 2015 is what they said, and mid-2015 is when the bikes started to show up on doorsteps in the US. Nine months ago, they started showing up on doorsteps in Europe.
