Moleskine Preparing For IPO

Posted Aug 27, 2012

Moleskine is an Italian company that started in 1997.  Moleskine sells products like the Evernote Smart Notebook and Moleskine Journal.  The company isn’t really an electronics company — they are more of a pen and paper type of company.

Moleskine is backed by several investors including Index Ventures.  Evernote and Moleskine’s product has versions that cost $24.95 and $29.95 that features Evernote’s digital note-taking software that has been designed to capture information from the notebooks’ pages.

Moleskine is planning to go public with the IPO next year on the Milan stock market.  Moleskine’s revenues grew from $100 million in 2006 to $250 million in 2010.
