Sebi approves the IPO of Allied Brothers, Distillers, and two other companies in 2023
Officer’s Preference The initial public offering, or (IPO), has been approved for Allied Blenders & Distillers Company Limited – a firm that produces whiskey; Divgi Torqtransfer Systems – a creator of automotive components, and IKIO Lighting, a company that makes LED lighting systems.
According to a Securities and Exchange Board of India (Sebi) update, the three businesses that submitted their first public offering papers to the regulator between September and October got the regulator’s observation letters between October 13 and 16. Getting an observation letter from Sebi clearly means that the IPO can start.
These companies’ shares are being recommended for listing on the BSE and NSE stock markets. According to the draft documents, the IPO for Allied Blenders & Distillers would include a fresh proposal of share capital worth Rs 1,000 crore and an Offer For Sale (OFS) by the promoter and a promoter group company for Rs 1,000 crore.
Bina Kishore Chhabria would sell up to Rs 500 crore shares to be part of the OFS, while Resham Chhabria, Jeetendra Hemdev, and Neesha Kishore Chhabria will each sell shares for up to Rs 250 crore.
The issue’s proceedings will be applied to debt repayment and company purposes. As of March 31, the company’s Indian-Made Foreign Liquor (IMFL) brand portfolio included ten different whiskeys, brandy, rum, and different vodka options. Officer’s Selection Whisky, Sterling Select Whisky, Jolly Roger Rum, and Class 21 Vodka are a few of the company’s well-known products.
Following the Draft Red Herring Prospectus, the IPO of Divgi Torqtransfer Systems has a situation of shares totaling up to Rs 200 crores and an OFS of up to 31,46,802 share capital by investors and some other selling shareholders (DRHP).
The Nrjn Family Trust, Omani India Joint Investment Fund II, Brahma Bhachandra Divgi, Sandeep Bhalchandra Divgi, Ashish Anant Divgi, Arun Siddharth Idgunji, and Kishore Mangesh Kalbag would all sell shares to be part of the OFS.
The company’s capital spending requirements for the purchase of technology for its manufacturing facilities, and other general business goals, will be happy with the proceedings of the new issuance.
Divgi is a producer of automotive parts with the ability to develop and provide torque couplers, transfer cases, and dual-clutch automatic transmission (DCT) system-level solutions. Its three production and assembly facilities are dispersed across India. The new situation of up to 350 crore rupees worth of shares and the OFS of up to 75 lakh rupees price of the equity shares by the workers Hardeep Singh & Sumeet Kaur make up the IKIO Lighting IPO.
The case then shifts to a new development in which Rs. 50 crore will be used to settle the debt. The industry’s wholly-owned affiliate, IKIO Solutions, will use Rs 236.68 crore for business purposes and the construction of a new module in Noida, Uttar Pradesh. Products using light-emitting diodes (LEDs) are made by IKIO Lighting.
On the other hand, on December 16, Sebi returned the Motions Jewellers Ltd. draft papers. In October, the business submitted draft paperwork to Sebi.
