Key Updates in Brief

1. Spoilt for choice? Where to bet as 4 IPOs run simultaneously

As bulls returned to Dalal Street, action in the primary market also gathered pace, with four initial public offers (IPOs) running simultaneously. These four IPOs – Five Star Business Finance, Archean Chemical, Kaynes Technology and Inox Green – looking to raise Rs 5,000 crore cumulatively have left investors in a fix about which ones to pick. Apart from Archean Chemical, which closes for subscription today, no other IPO had managed to even cross the halfway mark at the time of writing this report.

According to Astha Jain of Hem Securities, if an investor has limited funds, then both Kaynes Tech and Archean Chemical look like lucrative bets.

Most brokerages have suggested a subscribe rating on both Kaynes Tech and Archean Chemical, while a few have flagged their premium valuations. If one has surplus funds, then they can bet on Inox Green, but here the horizon should be long-term, and investors, especially those with high-risk appetite, can look to invest, Jain said.

2. Tata Play primed to be 1st Indian co to file confidential filing with Sebi for IPO

Tata Play (formerly Tata Sky) is set to become one of the first Indian companies – if not the first – to file a confidential pre-filing of offer documents for initial public offering (IPO), possibly in the next fortnight, multiple people said.

Stock market regulator Sebi is expected to issue guidelines on confidential IPO pre-filing – allowing pre-filing sans public announcement to help safeguard sensitive business information of issuers – in the next 7-10 days, legal experts aware of the development said.

The Securities and Exchanges Board of India (Sebi) has been looking to allow such filings and was to discuss the matter in its board meeting on September 30, they said.

3. Muthoot Pappachan Group plans Rs 1,800-cr IPO for MFI arm

Mumbai, Muthoot Microfin, the microfinance arm of the Muthoot Pappachan Group, is planning to tap the capital markets with an initial share sale offer of Rs 1,500-1,800 crore by the last quarter of 2023. Delhi-based Muthoot Microfin is promoted by Muthoot Fincorp, which is the third-largest gold loan player and the flagship firm of Muthoot Pappachan Group.

This is the third largest MFI with a client base of 2.2 million across 18 states and served by its 1,008 branches. As of September 2022, the company had an active loan book of Rs 7,500 crore. We are planning a Rs 1,500-1,800-crore IPO by the fourth quarter of 2023 and expected to file the IPO papers with the Sebi by May 2023, Thomas Muthoot, managing director of Muthoot Microfin, told PTI on Wednesday from Kochi.

At Rs 1,500-1,800 crore, our IPO will be the largest from the MFI segment, Muthoot said, adding that Muthoot Microfin will also be the first MFI to cross the Rs 10,000-crore AUM mark by the time of listing.

Muthoot Fincorp and the Muthoot family own a 71 per cent stake in Muthoot Microfin. Besides, London-based private equity firm GPC holds 16.6 per cent and Chicago-based private equity fund Creation owns 9.3 per cent, he added. To read more: Click Here
