Details Regarding The CEVA Investments IPO

CEVA Investments IPOCEVA Investments Ltd, a London, England based company that does business as CEVA Logistics Inc., is one of the leading supply chain management companies in the world.  CEVA Investments filed for an Initial Public Offering (IPO), the CEVA Investments IPO for short, in early May 2012.  After the CEVA Investments IPO occurs, the company’s stock will trade on the New York Stock Exchange (NYSE) as symbol “CEVL”, and the company will change its name to CEVA Logistics, Inc. to reflect the logistics business sector that it operates in.

CEVA Investments Ltd is a privately held company owned by Apollo Management, L.P., which acquired CEVA Investment’s predecessor TNT Logistics in 2006 and Eagle Global Logistics in 2007 to create the current CEVA Investments logistics company.  The CEVA Investments IPO should attract investor attention from around the world because the company is the second largest non-asset based supply chain management company in the world, based on 2011 revenues.  The CEVA Investments IPO is expected to raise $400 million, per the initial IPO filing.  The proceeds from the CEVA Investments IPO will be used to pay down debt, so the company can improve its financial performance and business operations.

The CEVA Investments IPO Investment

The CEVA Investments IPO offers an opportunity to invest in a world-wide supply chain management company.  CEVA Investments designs, implements, and operates end-to-end supply chain solutions for businesses that require shipments to meet their material or product supply needs or to ship materials and products to customers around the world.  The company uses a number of different shipping methods and value-added logistics to meet their customers worldwide shipping requirements.  CEVA Investments operates in more than 170 countries and 1,000 locations throughout the world, and servers over 15,000 customers.  CEVA Investments’ customers include some of the biggest companies in the world, such as General Motors, Johnson & Johnson, Petrobras, Procter & Gamble, and Samsung.

An investment in the CEVA Investments IPO, is an investment in the world economy and global economic growth, as companies and consumers increasingly require materials and products from different regions of the world.  Demand for CEVA Investments logistics services is strong due to the trend towards internationalization of manufacturing.  CEVA Investments offers a wide range of logistics services that fall into two business segments, Freight Management and Contract Logistics.  CEVA Investments is the sixth largest freight management company in the world, offering services that include the management of international air freight and ocean freight forwarding.  CEVA Investments is the second largest contract logistics company in the world, offering services that integrate end-to-end shipping solutions for their customers.

CEVA Investments revenues have been growing, as the world economy has recovered from the deep recession in 2008 and 2009.  From 2009 to 2011, CEVA Investments reported a revenue increase from $7.7 billion to $9.6 billion.  Turning their increasing revenues into profits has been a challenge for CEVA Investments, and is something that may make some investors shy way from the CEVA Investments IPO; however the company did report EBITDA before management fees that grew from $336 million in 2009 to $454 million in 2011.  With an improved debt picture after the CEVA Investments IPO, the new post-IPO company, CEVA Logistics, may be an attractive investment.
