Radiant Cash Management submits DRHP for IPO. Check details here
Radiant Cash Management Services Ltd has filed its draft red herring prospectus with the capital markets regulator SEBI to launch its initial public offering, joining dozens of other companies planning to go public.
The IPO comprises a fresh issue of shares worth Rs 60 crore and an offer for sale of a little more than 3 crore shares by its promoter and private equity investor Ascent Capital.
The company’s founder Colonel David Devasahayam intends to sell up to 1.0125 crore shares while Ascent Capital plans to divest 2 crore shares, according to the DRHP.
Devasahayam and co-founder Renuka David together own a 62.79% stake in the company. Ascent Capital holds a 37.21% stake in Radiant Cash.
The company plans to use Rs 20 crore out of the net proceeds from the fresh issue to meet its working capital requirements and Rs 23.92 crore for its capital expenditure. It will use the remaining amount for general corporate purposes.
Radiant’s IPO filing comes about two months after bigger peer CMS Info Systems Ltd, India’s largest cash management company, filed its own DRHP to float an IPO.
