What Bharti Hexacom IPO entails

Bharti Hexacom IPO is an offer-for-sale (OFS) of up to 7.5 crore shares and that makes up just a 15 per cent stake sale by the existing shareholder namely, Telecommunications Consultants India Ltd.

Significantly, the OFS size has been slashed to 7.5 crore from 10 crore equity shares planned earlier. The shares have been put on sale at between 542-570 each. The face value is 5 each.

The qualified institutional buyers (QIBs) portion makes up at least 75% of the allocation, 15% has been designated for non-institutional investors (NIIs), and retail investors portion is 10%.

Another major point that should be noted is that Bharti Hexacom IPO being purely an OFS, indicates that the entire proceeds will go to the shareholders who are selling. In effect that means the company will not receive any of these funds.
