Indigo Paints IPO: Offer Size
Source: Red herring prospectus (RHP)
|Fresh issue of shares||upto ₹3,000 million|
|Sequoia Capital India IV||2 million shares|
|SCI Investments||2.1 million shares|
|Hemant Jalan||1.67 million shares|
The company has appointed Kotak Mahindra Capital Company, Edelweiss Financial Services and ICICI Securities as the book running lead managers to the issue.
The proceeds of the issue will be used for expansion of the existing manufacturing facility at Pudukkottai in Tamil Nadu, purchase of tinting machines and gyro shakers, and repayment/prepayment of borrowings.
The Pune-based firm is the fifth-largest company in the Indian decorative paints segment in terms of revenue for fiscal year 2020. It has three manufacturing facilities located in Rajasthan, Kerala and Tamil Nadu.
HDFC Securities in an earlier IPO note said that making inroads into the paints industry with a small number of firms remains a herculean task, given strong distribution moats of the top few. “Against this backdrop, Indigo Paints (founded in 2000) has been consistently chipping away market share within the ecosystem.”

Keshav Lahoti, Associate Equity Analyst at Angel Broking in a written statement to Business Insider also said that “If the issue is priced reasonably, we expect a good response for this IPO.”
Even the shares are piping hot in the grey market ahead of the price band announcement. The shares were trading at a premium of ₹800-820 in the grey market.
The grey market premium is the measure of the extra amount that the market is ready to pay for a newly listed company’s shares. However, it is not an official measure of the market premium. But it is a fair indicator of demand for the shares in the market.
