FCA will raise more than $4 billion from taking Ferrari public, despite limiting the offering to a 9.1 percent stake in the company. Investors’ demand for the shares greatly exceeded the number available. The company plans to distribute the remaining 80 percent stake to its own investors early next year while Piero Ferrari will retain his 10-percent holding.

Cash from the IPO will be vital to Fiat Chrysler, helping the company finance a $54.45 billion investment program to expand the Jeep, Alfa Romeo and Maserati brands.
