Bhavish Aggarwal, Founder of Ola Electric, took to X, to share the news of the upcoming IPO this month, indirectly as SEBI is yet to update formally on this issue.

Ola Electric

Ola Electric is India’s largest electric scooter maker with a market share of 49% in the EV 2W segment. This Bengaluru-based company filed its Draft Red Herring Prospectus in December 2023.

Therefore, the total size of the Ola IPO amounts to Rs. 7250 Crore. Additionally, founder Bhavish Aggarwal will divest 4.7 crore shares via an OFS. The company has also exercised the option to raise Rs. 1000 crore via pre-IPO placement, which will lead to a reduction in the fresh issue size.

What lies ahead?

In line with this IPO, Ola Electric eyes on 6 Billion Dollar valuation in the Indian Market. The company’s IPO is a mark of new-age IPOs as Ola Electric will become the first pure EV company to be placed on the exchange platform. With the public offerings, Ola Electric plans to establish the Ola Gigafactory initiative. This project will use about Rs. 1226 Cr for capex and Rs. 800 Cr to repay its debt.
