The IPO of WomanCart Limited has a fresh issue component and no offer for sale (OFS) portion in the IPO.

Since, there is no OFS component, the total issue size will also comprise the issue of 11,12,000 shares (11.12 lakhs), which at ₹86 per share, also aggregates to total issue size of ₹9.56 crore.

The minimum lot size for the IPO investment will be 1,600 shares. Thus, retail investors can invest a minimum of ₹137,600 (1,600 x ₹86 per share) in the IPO.

The market maker is Nikunj Stock Brokers Ltd and will provide two-way quotes to ensure liquidity on the counter post listing and low basis costs. Post the issue, the stake of the promoter, Veena Pahwa, will dilute from 78.01% to 57.40%. The fresh funds will be used for expenses of branding and marketing as well as for the expenses of app development and working capital needs. Narnolia Financial Services Ltd will be the lead manager to the issue and Maashitla Securities Private Ltd will be the registrar to the issue.
