Veranda’s Initial Public Offering (IPO): Why Invest?
The firm aims to repay or prepay, in part or in whole, all or some borrowings up to Rs 60 crore using this financing. It plans to spend Rs 25.19 crore on the Edureka purchase and roughly Rs 50 crore on expansion activities. There are no publicly traded businesses in India that operate in the same industry as Veranda Learning Solutions.
Veranda also noted that India’s urban population is expanding at a pace of 2.3 percent per year, compared to the country’s total population growth rate of 1.0 percent. Urban regions provide greater career prospects and higher incomes, as well as better educational chances. As a consequence, growing urbanization will result in increased educational investment. With India’s expanding wealth and disposable money, families are spending more on schooling.
Between FY08 and FY14, average education expenditure per student in rural regions climbed at a CAGR of 19.4%, while it increased at a CAGR of 16.6% in urban areas. The growth was hampered by demonetization, and between FY14 and FY18, average education expenditure per student in rural regions climbed at a CAGR of 4.0 percent, while it only increased at a CAGR of 6.0 percent in urban areas. According to IRR Advisory, average education spending per student is expected to rise from Rs 8,300 in FY18 to Rs 17K in FY25.
