Shyam Metalics' Rs 1,107-cr initial public offering to open on Jun 14

The Rs 1,107-crore initial share-sale of Shyam Metalics and Energy Ltd will open on June 14, merchant banking sources said on Saturday.

The three-day initial public offer (IPO) will close on June 16 and the bidding for anchor investors will open on June 11, they said.

The IPO comprises fresh issuance of equity shares worth up to Rs 657 crore and an offer-for-sale to the tune of Rs 450 crore by existing shareholders, according to the draft red herring prospectus.

Those participating in the OFS are Subham Capital, Subham Buildwell, Kalpataru Housefin & Trading, Dorite Tracon, Narantak Dealcomm and Toplight Mercantiles.

Going by the draft papers, the company intends to utilise the net proceeds from the fresh issue for repayment or prepayment of Rs 470 crore of its debt and that of its subsidiary, Shyam SEL and Power Ltd; and for other general corporate purposes.

Shyam Metalics and Energy, which filed preliminary IPO papers with capital markets regulator Sebi in February, received its go-ahead on May 11.

The Kolkata-based long steel products and ferro alloy focused company sells intermediate and final products across the steel value chain catering to institutional and end use customers through 42 distributors, brokers across 13 states and one union territory.

It operates three manufacturing plants that are located at Sambalpur in Odisha, and Jamuria and Mangalpur in West Bengal.

The company had tried to tap the capital markets in the past too. It had filed draft papers for IPO with Sebi in 2018 and had even received clearance from the regulator. However, the company deferred its plans to list on the bourses.

ICICI Securities, JM Financial, Axis Capital, IIFL Securities and SBI Capital Markets Ltd are the book running lead managers to the issue.
