IPO Alert: Capillary Technologies plans ₹850-crore public listing

The global SaaS (software as a service) market grew 22% from ₹3 trillion in 2015 to ₹8 trillion in 2020, and it is expected to gain 30% and reach around ₹23 trillion in the next four years. Indian SaaS companies are expected to generate $30 billion in revenue by 2025, capturing an 8%-9% share of the global SaaS market.

Capillary Technologies India Limited recently filed a draft red herring prospectus with the SEBI for an ₹850-crore initial public offering.

As per the prospectus, the issue consists of a fresh issue of equity shares aggregating up to ₹200 crores and an offer for sale of shares worth ₹650 crores by Capillary Technologies International Pte Ltd. The company may also consider a further issue of equity shares, including a private placement aggregating up to ₹20 crores.

Capillary Technologies plans to use ₹41.9 crores of the net proceeds from the offering towards repayment of loans. It will use ₹72 crores for the development of new product offerings and enhancing internally generated software. The other priorities are strategic investments and acquisitions, and general corporate purposes.
