The IMF lowered its growth forecasts for both China and the Eurozone. The international financial organization maintained its previous projection of 3.0% for global real GDP growth in 2023 but reduced it to 2.9% for 2024.

Birkenstock (BIRK) is preparing to go public with roughly 32 million shares, pricing the IPO at $46 per share.

Birkenstock’s IPO comes as consumers’ discretionary spending, which includes footwear, has come under increased scrutiny.
