Macleods files DRHP for Rs.5,000 crore IPO
More than 16 months after the last big IPO of Gland Pharma, another mega pharma IPO is all set to tap the Indian capital markets. Mumbai based Macleods Pharma is slated to tap the capital market with an IPO of Rs.5,000 crore which will be entirely an offer for sale by the promoters and early investors in the company.

The promoters will be selling a total of 6.048 crore shares via the offer for sale route. Currently, the entire equity of the company is held by the promoters. Due to this being an OFS, there will be no fresh funds coming into the company and the purpose is to only give an exit to the early investors and promoters.
This will also enable the listing of the company which provides a basis for stock valuation and the use of stock as currency in future.
Just to give a background, Macleods Pharma is a vertically integrated pharma company. The company develops, manufactures and markets a wide range of formulations across a host of therapeutic areas.
These include anti-infectives, cardiovascular, anti-diabetic, dermatology, and hormone treatment products. The company has not done any external equity fund raising till date and the entire growth of the company till date has been organically driven.
