Biscuit maker Mrs Bectors Food Specialities has filed draft papers with markets regulator SEBI to raise an estimated Rs 800 crore through an initial public offering. The IPO will see sale of shares to the tune of Rs 800 crore by existing shareholders and promoters, according to the draft red herring prospectus (DRHP) filed with Sebi.
“Listing of the equity shares will enhance our visibility and brand and provide liquidity to its existing shareholders,” the company said.
IDFC Bank, Edelweiss Financial Services and IIFL Holdings will manage the company’s initial public offer (IPO). The equity shares will be listed on BSE and NSE.
Mrs Bectors Food manufactures and markets a range of products such as biscuits, breads and buns.
It markets a wide variety of biscuits and bread under the flagship brand ‘Mrs Bector’s Cremica’ and the ‘English Oven’ respectively.
Apart from Mrs Bectors Food, at least five companies — Sansera Engineering, Dodla Dairy, Nihilent, Shyam Metalics and Energy and ASK Investment Managers — have filed IPO papers with the markets regulator so far this month.
