PNB Housing Finance and Varun Beverages join IPO squad India's PNB Housing Finance Ltd and Varun Beverages are eyeing to raise more than $630 million jointly from initial public offerings (IPOs) next week, underpinning a surge in first-time share sales in Asia's third-largest economy. In the first nine months of the year, Indian companies have raised $2.9 billion through IPOs, a 171 per cent rise from a year earlier and the best run since 2010, as per data.
PNB Housing Finance Ltd The fifth-largest mortgage lender by assets in India, PNB Housing Finance Ltd, has plans to sell new shares in order to raise up to 30 billion rupees ($450.5 million) in the second largest IPO this year. The sale will commence on Oct. 25 and settle on Oct. 27, according to an announcement on Tuesday. The issue includes a reservation of 2.5 lakh equity shares for subscription by eligible employees, not surpassing 5 per cent of the post-issue paid up equity share capital. Employees may get shares at a discount of Rs 75 per share to the issue price. Equity shares are to be listed on the NSE and BSE. The lender has given the price range of 750 rupees to 775 rupees a share. Indian state-run Punjab National Bank owns 51 per cent of the lender. It will see its holding diluted to around 38 per cent whereas Carlyle Group's holding will dip to about 37 per cent from 49 per cent. Neither Punjab National Bank nor Carlyle will be selling shares in the IPO. Read more about PNB Housing Finance IPO at PNB Housing Finance IPO receives Sebi nod
PNB's share sale will be the second largest this year after private sector life insurer ICICI Prudential Life Insurance Co Ltd raised 60.57 billion rupees last month in the biggest local IPO in six years.
Will this issue help PNBâ€™s financials in any way? Unlikely, as the money raised (more than Rs 2,500 crore according to DRHP) through the issue will flow into the treasury of PNB Housing, as it is a fresh issue of shares. Hence, there will not be any rise in PNBâ€™s capital after the issue. Its tier-1 capital ratio was 8.4 per cent in the financial year 16, among the lowest in the sector. In order to note profitable growth, the bank needs to increase this. Intraday on Wednesday, PNB share price is trading at Rs. 141.85, up by 0.75 per cent. Bankers- Kotak Investment Banking, Bank of America Merrill Lynch, J M Financial, J P Morgan and Morgan Stanley are the global coordinators and book running lead managers (BRLMs) to the issue.
