Tarkett Begins Marketing for Stock Offering

Paris, France, Oct. 29, 2013 -- Flooring maker Tarkett began marketing its planned Paris stock market listing to potential investors on Tuesday, Reuters reported.

Earlier this month Tarkett, which is half-owned by private investment firm KKR, submitted a registration filing for an initial public offering.

The Deconinck family, who own the other half of the company, will reportedly buy enough shares to keep more than half ownership in the company.
