Shapoorji Pallonji Group’s Afcons Infrastructure files papers for ₹7,000-cr IPO

Shapoorji Pallonji Group’s flagship infrastructure engineering and construction company Afcons Infrastructure Ltd (AIL) has filed draft papers with markets regulator SEBI to raise ₹7,000 crore through an initial public offering (IPO).

The company’s mega IPO is a combination of fresh issue of shares worth ₹1,250 crore and an offer for sale (OFS) of up to ₹5,750 crore by promoter Goswami Infratech Private Limited. Also, the offer includes a reservation for subscriptions by eligible employees, according to the draft red herring prospectus (DRHP) filed on Thursday.

Currently, promoter and promoter group entities own 99.48 per cent stake in Maharashtra-based Afcons Infrastructure.

Moreover, the company may consider raising up to ₹250 crore in the ‘pre-IPO placement’ round.  If such placement is completed, the fresh issue size will be reduced.
