A Closer Look at AGS Transact Technologies IPO
AGS Transact Technologies filed its draft paper with the market regulator in August 2021 to generate as much as Rs. 680 crores. The public offer is a pure offer for sale by the company’s promoter. As a part of its offer for sale, Ravi B Goyal, the promoter, will divest shares amounting to Rs. 680 crores. Meaning, the company will not receive the proceeds from this initial share sale.
The primary objectives of this public issue are:
- To conduct an OFS by selling promoters, and
- Realize the benefits of listing in the stock exchanges
Earlier, AGS Transact Technologies had tried to go public. For instance, the company filed its draft papers with SEBI in 2015 to generate Rs. 1,350 crores. In addition, it also approached the market regulator with its Rs. 1,000 crores IPO in 2018. However, AGS Transact Tech dropped the idea of going public even after receiving SEBI’s nod.
