This week is going to be action-packed for investors who are looking to park their money in IPOs as three mainboard companies will launch their public offer on February 7. Two small finance banks (SFBs) — Capital and Jana – as well as Rashi Peripherals, a national distribution partner for global technology brands in India, will keep the primary market busy with their combined public offering of ₹1,693 crore. Adding to it, the ₹920-crore IPO of Apeejay Surrendra Park Hotels will close on February 7, 2024.

While Rashi Peripherals looks to raise ₹600 crore via IPO route, Jana Small Finance Bank and Capital Small Finance Bank are eying to garner ₹570 crore and ₹523 crore, respectively, through the primary market. The IPO of Rashi Peripherals is entirely a fresh issue of equity shares with no offer for sale (OFS) component, while issues of Capital and Jana SFBs are combination of fresh equities and share sales by existing shareholders.

Here’s all you need to know about IPOs before they open for subscription:

Jana Small Finance Bank

The IPO of the country’s fourth largest small finance bank in terms of AUM and deposit size will open for subscription on February 7 and close on February 9.

The issue comprises a fresh issue of equity shares worth ₹462 crore and the remaining ₹108 crore through the OFS route. The lot size for the public issue is 36 shares and thereafter. The company has reserved half of the issue for qualified institutional buyers (QIB), up to 35% for retail investors, and the remaining 15% for non institutional investors (NII).

The bank plans to use capital raised from the fresh issue to augment its Tier 1 capital base to meet future capital requirements. A part of the fund will be also used towards meeting the expenses related to the offer.

A day ahead of the IPO, the SFB has raised ₹167 crore from anchor investors by allocating 40,32,588 equity shares at the price of ₹414 per equity share. A total of 17 institutional investors participated in the anchor book, including marquee institutional investors such as East Bridge Capital Master Fund, Turnaround Opportunity Fund, HDFC Life Insurance Company, SBI General Insurance Company, Kotak Iconic Fund, and SBI Life Insurance Company.
