A quick word on Kore Digital Ltd and the SME IPO

Here is what the business model of Kore Digital Ltd is all about. It is one of the key mid-sized telecom infrastructure providers in India, offering high-end communication solutions to corporate and Telecom Network Operators. It area of operations is predominantly in the state of Maharashtra, where it undertakes telecom infrastructure related services like installing and commissioning poles, towers, and optical fibre cable (OFC) Systems. The company has a full-fledged Infrastructure Provider (IP-1) license issued by DOT, and this license is the key to the operations of the company in this particular vertical.

Let us understand why this DOT licence is so critical. The license is the key to establish and maintain assets; Dark Fibres, right of way, duct space, and towers to grant on lease or rent or sale basis to the licensees of Telecom Network Operators, Broad Band Service Operators, and ISPs. In the past, Kore Digital has laid cables for marquee industry names like Vodafone Idea, Bharti Airtel, Reliance Jio, and Tata Teleservices Maharashtra Ltd. The company will use the fresh funds raised via IPO for working capital needs and to make inorganic acquisitions to deepen its presence in its core business verticals.

The total SME IPO of Kore Digital Ltd entails the fresh issue of 10,00,000 (10 lakh) shares at the IPO fixed price of ₹180 per share aggregating to ₹18.00 crore. The stock has a face value of ₹10 and retail bidders can bid in minimum lot size of 800 shares each. Thus, the minimum investment of ₹144,000 in the IPO is the base limit. That is also the maximum that a retail investor can apply for in the IPO.

HNIs / NIIs can invest in 2 lots of 1,600 shares worth ₹288,000 as the bare minimum investment. There is no upper limit for the HNI / NII category. Kore Digital Ltd will deploy the funds for working capital needs of the company and for making strategic acquisitions in its core verticals.
