Auto component manufacturer Sandhar Technologies has filed draft papers with capital markets regulator Sebi to raise Rs 300 crore through an initial public offer.
The IPO comprises a fresh issue of equity shares worth Rs 300 crore and an offer for sale of 80 lakh scrips by GTI Capital Beta Pvt Ltd, according to the draft red herring prospectus (DRHP) filed with Sebi.
The company intends to use a portion of the net proceeds to prepay/repay certain loan facilities and for general corporate purposes.
“Our company intends to utilise an amount of up to Rs 225 crore from the net proceeds towards the same,” the draft papers said.
The IPO papers further said, “Such repayment will help reduce our outstanding indebtedness and debt servicing costs, and enable utilisation of our internal accruals for further investment in our growth strategies. We believe this would improve our ability to raise further resources in the future to fund potential business developments opportunities”.
ICICI Securities and Axis Capital will manage the company’s Initial Public Offer (IPO). The equity shares are proposed to be listed on BSE and NSE.
