Details about Inox Green Energy’s IPO:
This is the second time that Inox Green Energy Services is attempting to launch its public issue. The company had earlier filed its draft red herring prospectus in February this year, but withdrew it for unknown reasons in April. The second draft red herring prospectus was filed by Inox Green Energy in June.
Inox Green Energy Services is involved in providing long-term operation and maintenance (O&M) services for wind farm projects and the common infrastructure facilities on them such as Wind Turbine Generators (WTGs) and other machines involved on the farms.
As per Tarachandani, the company is witnessing 30-40 per cent growth each year and its value will reach Rs 400-500 crore in the next three-four years.
The stake sale has been structured by the government in such a way that the buyer can increase its stake potentially to about 66 percent through acquiring 5.28 percent held by the public through open offer.
The total proceeds from the fresh issue will be utilised for establishing a manufacturing facility in Gujarat
