HAMBURG (Reuters) – Volkswagen is considering a listing of its luxury car division Porsche AG to rake in cash needed for the group’s shift towards software and electric vehicles, a person familiar with the matter said on Thursday.

Manager Magazin had reported the news earlier, boosting Volkswagen shares by as much as 5.7%. The magazine said Volkswagen could list as much as 25% of Porsche AG, a stake that could be valued at 20 billion to 25 billion euros ($24-$30 billion).
Volkswagen declined to comment. Top shareholder Porsche Automobil Holding SE, which holds 31.4% of Volkswagen and 53.1% of the group’s voting rights, also declined to comment.
