The flagship company of the Samvardhana Motherson Group has set the price band at Rs 317 to Rs 327.95 per share, according to the term-sheet accessed by Bloomberg. The final pricing will be decided on September 13.

Motherson has appointed JM Financial, UBS Securities, ICICI Securities, IDFC Bank and IIFL Holdings as the book running lead managers.

Apart from qualified institutional placement, Motherson will also issue 1.78 crore shares to Sumitomo Wiring Systems (SWS) through a preferential issue to ensure that the Japanese company’s holding is maintained above 25 percent.

The Indian promoter’s shareholding will fall to approximately 35 percent from the current holding of 37.5 percent, according to BloombergQuint’s calculations.
