IPO Alert: Sanathan Textiles files for ₹1,300-crore initial public offering

The textile sector in India plays an important role in the country’s economic activity. Together, the textile, leather and apparel industries contributed around 13% to the gross value added in fiscal 2020.

The global textile industry is estimated to have reached $978 billion in fiscal 2021 and is expected to grow at a compound annual rate of 4-5% through 2026. Meanwhile, the domestic textile market is projected to grow at 7-9% during that period.

Sanathan Textiles Limited recently filed a draft red herring prospectus with market regulator SEBI to raise funds through an initial public offering. The estimated size of the offering is in the range of 1,200-1,300 crores.

Sanathan Textiles plans to raise 500 crores via a fresh issue of equity shares. There will be an offer for sale of up to 11,400,000 shares by promoters. Additionally, the company may consider a pre-IPO placement of shares aggregating up to 100 crores.

The company intends to use ₹325 crores from the net proceeds for prepayment or repayment of loan. It will deploy ₹65 crores for funding working capital requirements and use the remaining funds for general corporate purposes.
