Chemplast Sanmar IPO Subscribed 0.26 Times On Day 2
A pick-up in retail investor interest failed to drive the overall subscription for Chemplast Sanmar Ltd.'s Rs 3,850-crore initial public offering on the second day.
The issue was subscribed only 0.16 times on first day, and 0.26 times on day two.
The specialty chemical maker is selling shares at Rs 530-541 apiece in the three-day IPO. It comprises a fresh issue of Rs 1,300 crore and an offer-for-sale worth Rs 2,550 crore by the promoter, the Sanmar Group.
The company is seeking a market valuation of Rs 7,754 crore at the upper end of its price band. The IPO will close on Aug. 12.
The company is returning to the exchanges after a nine-year gap. It had voluntarily delisted in May 2012 when it acquired shares of face value value of Re 1 each from investors at Rs 15 apiece.
Chemplast plans to use proceeds from the fresh issue to redeem non-convertible debentures of up to Rs 1,238.3 crore within 90 days of its close. It had issued NCDs aggregating to Rs 1,270 crore of seven-year tenure and interest rate of 17.5% per annum.
