KKR to list on Euronext today

Kohlberg Kravis Roberts (KKR) lists on public markets today. KKR shares will float on the Euronext exchange, after the firm finalised its merger with affiliated fund, KKR Private Equity (KPE), which was already listed on the exchange. Combining with KPE gave KKR a means to complete a market listing, after its initial plans to list stalled as the financial crisis kicked in. KKR’s next step is to shift the listing from Amsterdam-based Euronext to the New York Stock Exchange.
