“Strong response to Syrma SGS public issue will hopefully open up the IPO market which has been shut for a long time,” said Dharmesh Mehta, MD & CEO, DAM Capital Advisors lead banker for the issue. “A good company at a decent valuation will always have a strong appetite.”
The Syrma SGS IPO consisted of a fresh issue of shares worth Rs 766 crore and an offer for sale of up to 33.69 lakh shares. The IPO, the first in nearly three months, opened on August 12 for a subscription. Syrma SGS Technology raised Rs 252 crore from anchor investors last week ahead of its initial share sale.
The net proceeds from the fresh share issue will be utilised for funding capital expenditure requirements to expand manufacturing and R&D facilities and to fund long-term working capital requirements.
