Shyam Metalics and Energy (SMEL) will end the over two-month drought in the initial public offering (IPO) market. The steelmaker will launch its Rs 909-crore offering next week. SMEL has pruned its IPO size from Rs 1,107 crore, with the promoters deciding to offload shares worth Rs 252 crore as against Rs 452 crore deliberate earlier.
The company has priced its IPO between Rs 303 to 306 per share. The IPO will remain open between June 14 and June 16. Anchor investors will be allotted shares on Friday.
The final IPO to hit the domestic market used to be the Rs 2,500-crore offering by real estate major Macrotech Developers.
Market players said the turbulence caused because of the second-wave of covid-19 forced many companies to hold back their listing plans. Alternatively, a sharp rebound available in the market since May has helped revive the IPO market, they said.
The benchmark Sensex has rallied more than 7 per cent since May 1.
SMEL IPO is coming on the back of a sharp rally in shares of metal companies. The Nifty Metal index has rallied 62 per cent so far this year.
SMEL is having a look to bring Rs. 657 crore fresh capital from the IPO. The company proposes to utilise the issue proceeds to retire debt of up to Rs 470 crores.
