When will Silk Threads return to stock exchanges?
- by admin
By KEN LYON The stock market is likely to get a boost on Thursday when the European Union and the U.S. announce they are expanding their supply-side programs, which are expected to see an influx of $1 trillion in stimulus packages over the next four years.
The first tranche of stimulus will be worth $300 billion a year and the rest will come in the form of tax cuts, a reduction in corporate taxes and more money for the unemployed.
“We are in a period of very strong economic conditions in the world.
The world economy is in a very good place,” British Prime Minister David Cameron said Thursday in Brussels.
“The world is a safer place than it was in the summer of 2017.
So it’s good to see that this has the potential to make a big difference.”
Silk Thread, the world’s largest maker of threading material and apparel, announced Thursday that it would re-enter the stock market for the first time since June 2015.
It is the largest maker in the country and one of the most popular options for traders, who can buy stock for as little as $2 a share.
Silk Thread was also among the first companies to file for bankruptcy protection last week, after the company lost nearly $50 million in a bid to remain afloat.
Silk is among several companies, including Nike, Adidas and Amazon, that have been struggling to make ends meet as a result of a surge in the global supply of raw materials and services.
Silk’s founder, Jochen Schulz, had been planning to expand into the U, U.K., but a plan to build a factory in Germany fell through, a decision that was criticized by unions and other business leaders.
Silk said Thursday it had secured $1.8 billion in government funding, which will help with debt restructuring and fund capital expenditures.
“It’s an important step in the right direction for us,” Silk said in a statement.
Silk, which was founded in 2012, has about 2,000 employees in the U., and about 200 in the UK, where it employs about 1,000 people.
The company’s sales have surged nearly 25% this year, driven by a surge of orders for its Silk Thread Silk Jacket and Silk Thread Cotton Sweaters.
Silk also plans to build an 8-mile line in the European market and has launched an app for consumers to buy silk and other products online.
The new Silk Thread program, which began in the past two years, will be funded by the European Commission and European Union programs that will provide $200 billion in financing over the coming years.
Silk says it is aiming to reach 10 million customers by 2021, with the majority of them in the EU.
It said it has plans to expand the Silk Thread range of clothing, accessories and footwear.
“Silk Threads Silk Jacket has been a huge success for Silk Thread and the European economy,” said European Commission Vice President of Trade, Industry and Energy, Anna Cramer, in a press release.
“Our investment in Silk Thread is a major contribution to the European development and we will continue to support Silk Thread in the future.”
Silk is currently operating under a government-backed lending program that has helped the company expand and become one of Europe’s biggest textile suppliers.
Silk announced earlier this year that it had sold a record amount of silk, with sales in April reaching more than $20 billion.
Silk has not reported quarterly results since it closed its first domestic plant in 2011.
Silk plans to invest $2 billion in its European plant.
