Investment Idea Details
About the company

The company designs, markets and sells products that include jeans, casual and dress pants, tops, shorts, skirts, jackets, footwear and related accessories for men, women and children around the world under Levi’s, Dockers, Signature by Levi Strauss & Co. and Denizen brands. With $5.6 billion in net revenues and sales in more than 110 countries in fiscal year 2018, Levi’s is one of the world’s leading apparel companies with the Levi’s brand having the highest brand awareness in the denim bottoms category globally.

Net revenues have grown from $4.8 billion in fiscal year 2011 to $5.6 billion in fiscal year 2018, representing a CAGR of 2.3%. Net income has grown from $135 million in fiscal year 2011 to $285 million in fiscal year 2018, representing a CAGR of 11.3%.

From November 2011 to November 2018, total debt decreased from $1.97 billion to $1.05 billion, and leverage ratio decreased from 3.8x to 1.5x.

Growth opportunities

Expand and strengthen established wholesale customer base among top five developed markets: the United States, France, Germany, Mexico and the United Kingdom.

Expand presence in underpenetrated international markets, such as China, India and Brazil, to drive long-term growth. China represents roughly 20% of the global apparel market, but only represented 3% of Levi’s net revenues in fiscal year 2018.

Risks

Company depends on a group of key wholesale customers for a significant portion of revenues. A significant adverse change in a customer relationship or in a customer’s performance or financial position could harm the business and financial condition.

Changes to trade policy, as well as tariff and import/export regulations, may have a material adverse effect on the business, financial condition and results of operations.

How IPO Investments Work

1.
Collection
of funds

2-3 weeks before the start of the company publishes information about the opening of trading: financial statements for 3 years, a description of the company's business, plans for the future, as well as the risks that management sees in their own business. We analyze such offers and publish the best ones. Investors apply for deposits. Before the deadline for applications, you can change the request or cancel it.

Buy shares

We submit one large application for the purchase of shares by pre-subscription with reduced price to large investors. The application may be rejected in part or in full. Over the past three years, our applications have been rejected only three times. The next day, or every other day, we'll know at what price and at what percentage the order is executed, and we'll post it on «The my investment page».

Submit applications before

3.
Start Bidding

The price of shares is rising from the first day due to the demand of investors deprived of the opportunity to buy shares before trading. Most of the stocks we've been recommending buying over the past three years have been starting to trade on the stock exchange at tens of percent higher than the price at which customers bought the shares. There comes a Lock up period when it is forbidden to sell shares purchased by subscription. Typically lasts 3 monthsOn early closing of investments.

Early profit fixation

Although no shares are allowed to be sold during the lock-up period, our traders seek to offer investors fixed profit by way of using various financial instruments, including forwards, options, short positions etc.

From the investor’s point of view this means that he or she may close an investment by paying a certain part of its value (as a rule, approximately 1005 percent). This is due to high prices for the instruments which are employed to ensure availability of fixed profit. As such, you shall press any relevant button in the Investor Account as soon as it is active.

The closing procedure is similar to commencement of investment business. You shall file a bid which is executed within a business day by UT. So, your investment is closed at the price currently prevailing on the stock exchange.

Fee

FOR ENTRY

3.5 per cent of the share price. This fee is charged as soon as your investment bid is confirmed.

FOR EXIT

3.5 per cent of the purchase price paid for your shares as soon as trading is closed. This fee is charged upon closure of any relevant investment.

SUCCESS

10 per cent of the profit your derive. This fee is charged only if you show positive performance as of the moment any relevant investment is closed.

TO EARLY EXIT

Usually, 10 per cent (depends on the stock exchange environment). It is calculated per each investment individually.
