The Good Guys take serious aim at ASX listing

Appoints Credit Suisse, Goldman Sachs and UBS

Electronics chain The Good Guys is taking another leap towards listing on the Australian Stock Exchange, after appointing Credit Suisse, Goldman Sachs and UBS as joint lead managers to support its Initial Public Offering bid.

To help facilitate the move to the ASX, Helfen Corporate Advisory has also been brought on board as an independent financial adviser.

In a statement, the retailer said it would consider any alternate ownership proposals that emerge with JB HI-FI recently revealing that it was looking into acquiring the retail chain, stating the discussions were “preliminary and exploratory.”

The Good Guys states annual sales of around $2 billion, with leading market positions in multiple categories including white goods, cooking, small kitchen appliances and home entertainment.

Furthermore, it has 100 large-format stores across metropolitan and regional Australia, supported by an advanced e-commerce platform and is currently transitioning to 100 per cent ownership of the store network, which is on track to be completed at the end of this financial year.

As reported by Fairfax Media, The Good Guys plan to IPO for $800 million.

As the Maserati or BMW of laptops, it would fit perfectly in the hands of a professional needing firepower under the hood, sophistication and class on the surface, and gaming prowess (sports mode if you will) in between.

This small mobile printer is exactly what I need for invoicing and other jobs such as sending fellow tradesman details or step-by-step instructions that I can easily print off from my phone or the Web.

Microsoft Office 365/Dell XPS 15 2-in-1

I’d recommend a Dell XPS 15 2-in-1 and the new Windows 10 to anyone who needs to get serious work done (before you kick back on your couch with your favourite Netflix show.)

It’s useful for office tasks as well as pragmatic labelling of equipment and storage – just don’t get too excited and label everything in sight!
