Among the awaited IPOs to be launched in June 2021 is that of Kolkata-based Shyam Metalics and Energy Ltd (SMEL). The initial public offer (IPO) of the company will open on June 14 at a size of Rs 909 crore. The three-day IPO’s issue closes on June 16. The bidding for anchor investors is set to open on June 11.

The Shyam Metalics IPO consists of fresh issuance of Rs 657 crore-worth equity shares. The offer for sale (OFS) by existing shareholders will be worth Rs 450 crore, according to the company’s draft red herring prospectus (DRHP). The participants of the OFS include Subham Buildwell, Subham Capital, Kalpataru Housefin and Trading, Narantak Dealcomm, Toplight Mercantiles and Dorite Tracon.

The company has reduced its IPO from the earlier Rs 1,107 crore, after promoters showed willingness to let go of only Rs 252 crore from their stakes. The earlier amount of shares to be offloaded was Rs 452 crore. The fresh issue size remains the same, though. A key reason cited by analysts for the reduction of the IPO size is the high valuation of metal stocks in recent times.

As per the draft papers, the company has reserved up to 50 per cent of the offer for qualified institutional buyers, while non-institutional investors will have nearly 15 per cent. Retail buyers will have up to 35 per cent reserved. The offer also includes nearly three lakh equity shares for eligible employees of the company.

According to the DRHP, the company plans to use the proceeds from IPO for repayment of debt to the tune of Rs 470 crore and also debt of its arm Shyam SEL and Power Ltd. It may be recalled that Shyam Metalics and Energy had filed its preliminary papers with market regulator SEBI in February. The company had received the green signal from SEBI on May 11.
