According to the official website of the Securities and Exchange Board of India (SEBI), the market regulator has issued observation letters to three companies on 16 February 2022 and 17 February 2022.

Read along to know about those companies and their public offerings!

A Closer Look into the Filing and Approval Process

Market regulator SEBI has approved the draft red herring prospectus (DRHP) of three more companies providing strong momentum to the country’s IPO scene. The names of these companies are Wellness Forever Medicare Ltd., API Holdings Ltd., which is the parent company of online pharmacy PharmEasy, and CMR Green Technologies Ltd. The observation letters denote that these companies can proceed to float their IPOs.

Know More About the IPO of API Holdings Ltd.

API Holdings Ltd. filed its draft papers with SEBI back in November 2021. This was carried on the back of many listings and IPOs of companies like PolicyBazaar, Zomato, and Paytm.

This company plans to float an initial sale of shares amounting to Rs. 6,250 crores. API holdings will utilise Rs. 1,929 crores from the total proceeds of this public offering to pay off or prepay its borrowings. In addition, Rs. 1,259 crores from the amount raised will be dedicated to funding organic growth initiatives. Finally, API Holdings Ltd. will utilise Rs. 1,500 crores from the entire proceeds of this public issue on inorganic growth opportunities by taking strategic initiatives and carrying acquisitions.

This company is even considering a private placement of up to Rs. 1,250 crores ahead of its public issue. Consequently, if the company successfully carries out such an arrangement, the size of the fresh issue part of this IPO will get reduced.
