India Pesticides IPO Details

India Pesticides, an R&D-focused agrochemical technical firm, has filed its DRHR to raise Rs. 800 crores via an IPO. The public offering includes a fund raise of Rs. 100 crores through a new issue of shares and Rs. 700 crores through an offer-for-sale by promoter and technocrat Anand Swarup Agarwal for Rs. 281 crores and other selling shareholders for the remaining Rs. 419 crores. According to the DRHR, the company can decide to do a Rs. 75 crores pre-IPO placement after consulting with merchant bankers.

Every equity share has a face value of Rs. 1. The business and the promoter selling shareholders, in conjunction with the BRLMS, will determine the price band and the minimum bid lot. The net proceeds will be used to finance working capital needs and general corporate purposes, according to the group. The Company also expects to benefit from the listing of the Equity Shares, such as increased exposure and brand image among current and potential customers.
