The Tata Technologies IPO will be a pure offer for sale by Tata Motors, Alpha TC Holdings and Tata Capital.
Tata Technologies Ltd. has sought approval of India’s market regulator for an initial public offering that will see parent Tata Motors Ltd. and others offload as much as 23.6% stake.
The Tata Technologies IPO will be a pure offer for sale of 95,708,984 shares by Tata Motors (81,133,706), Alpha TC Holdings Pte (9,716,853) and Tata Capital Growth Fund I (4,858,425), equivalent to 20%, 2.40% and 1.20% stake, respectively, according to the draft red-herring prospectus available on the website of the Securities and Exchange Board of India.
Tata Motors, at present, owns 74.69% of the company while Alpha TC Holdings and Tata Capital Growth Fund I have 7.26% and 3.63% stake, respectively.
The size of the IPO, whose proceeds will go to the selling shareholders, wasn’t disclosed. Tata Technologies' recent buyback valued the company at Rs 16,080 crore. Going by that valuation, the offer size could be at least Rs 3,800 crore.
JM Financial Ltd., BofA Securities and Citigroup Global Markets India Pvt. Ltd. are the book-running lead managers to the issue.
