The Indian defense electronics market is estimated to have grown at a CAGR of 4.5% between 2016 and 2020. The market, which is cumulatively worth around $1.88 billion so far this year, is expected to grow to approximately $6.99 billion by 2030, with an encouraging market opportunity.

Data Patterns (India) Limited, recently filed preliminary papers with capital market regulator SEBI to raise ₹6-7 billion through an initial share sale.

The public issue comprises a fresh issue of shares worth ₹3 billion and an offer for sale of 60,70,675 shares by promoters and individual shareholders. The company may consider a pre-IPO placement aggregating up to ₹600 million. If such placement is undertaken, the amount raised will be reduced from the fresh issue.

Data Patterns plans to utilize up to ₹542 million from the net proceeds towards pre-payment or scheduled repayment of its loans. The company will use ₹952 million from the net proceeds towards funding its working capital requirements. Further, it will deploy ₹627 million for upgrading and expanding its existing facility in Chennai. The remainder of the amount will be used for general corporate purposes.
