Alkem Labs to launch $210 mn IPO in December

Drug manufacturer Alkem Laboratories Ltd is set to launch an initial public offering (IPO) worth nearly $210 million by the second week of December, three people involved in the share sale said on Tuesday.

The IPO will be third high-profile market debut in the closing months of 2015, after InterGlobe Aviation Ltd - the owner of India's biggest airline, IndiGo - raised $459 million and Coffee Day Enterprises Ltd raised $176 million.


Alkem, a producer of generic drugs, filed a draft prospectus with capital markets regulator Sebi in August for an IPO of up to 12.85 million equity shares, constituting 10.75 per cent of paid-up capital.

Market volatility prompted speculation that the offer could be postponed to 2016.

"It will be in the first or second week of December, though most likely the second," said one of the people involved in the deal, who were not authorised to speak with media on the matter and so declined to be identified.

The person said the company had yet to determine a valuation.

In January, people involved in the deal told Reuters the company planned to raise Rs 1500 crore to Rs 1800 crore ($243 million to $291 million). But the people on Tuesday said the company would raise closer to $210 million.

While 2015 has seen a significant rise in debuts - the biggest in volume terms since 2012 - the IPO market is far from the record $8.5 billion of 2010, and the average size of listings has shrunk.

Alkem booked net profit of Rs 461 crore and revenue of Rs 3783 crore for the year through March 2015. The company has 16 manufacturing facilities - 14 in India and two in the United States.

Officials at Alkem were not reachable for comment.
