The Rs.1,255 crore fresh issue plus OFS, for which Paradeep Phosphates had filed the DRHP with SEBI in August 2021, has got SEBI approval for the IPO. The next step would be to factor in any comments of SEBI and then file the Red Herring Prospectus (RHP) with the Registrar Of Companies (ROC). The issue date is normally finalized after the RHP filing.

Paradeep Phosphates is currently 80.45% owned by Zuari Maroc Phosphates Private Limited and 19.55% owned by the Government of India. The overall issue will consist of Rs.1,255 crore fresh issue by the company to raise capital as well as an offer for sale of 12 crore shares by the existing shareholders viz. Zuari Maroc and Government of India.

As per the DRHP filed with SEBI, the government of India will offer 11.25 crore shares while Zuari Maroc Phosphates will offer 75 lakh shares as part of the offer for sale portion. The government stake will substantially reduce in this OFS and will add to its disinvestment receipts for fiscal year 2021-22. India has a divestment target of Rs.175,000 crore for FY22.

While the OFS portion will not alter the equity capital of the company, the fresh issue portion of Rs.1,255 crore will lead to expansion of the equity base and the dilution of earnings per share. The fresh issue proceeds will be used by the company for acquiring a fertilizer facility in Goa and repaying some of its debt to deleverage the balance sheet.

Paradeep Phosphates manufactures complex fertilizers like di-ammonium phosphate (DAP) and three grades of Nitrogen, Phosphorus, Potassium (NPK) fertilizers. The fertilizers manufactured by Paradeep Phosphates are currently marketed under the brands of “Navratna” and the Jai Kisaan Navratna”. 

The current year has been a solid year for the IPOs and looks all set to better the tally of 2017. Also, there are mega issues like Policybazaar, Nykaa, Paytm and LIC that are slated to hit the IPO market during the current fiscal.
