Shriram Properties Pvt. Ltd. lodged a draft prospectus on Dec. 24 with the Securities and Exchange Board of India for an IPO of up to 2.50 billion rupees, Livemint reported, citing the documents.
The overall IPO size is estimated to be approximately 12.0 billion rupees, more than the Indian company's previously reported plans for a 10.0 billion-rupee listing, due to several of its existing investors intending to trim their stake through the sale, the Dec. 25 report added, citing an unnamed source close to the matter.
Starwood Capital LLC, Tata Capital Financial Services Ltd., TPG Asia and Mauritius Investors Ltd. plan to sell their collective 42.4 million shares in the company via the offering.
Proceeds from the IPO will be channeled toward repayment of debt, including funds borrowed by Shriram's Shriprop Structures, Global Entropolis and Bengal Shriram divisions.
Axis Capital, Edelweiss Financial Services, JM Financial and Nomura are managing the offering, according to the Dec. 25 report.
As of Dec. 25, US$1 was equivalent to 70.06 Indian rupees.
