Details of the IPO

In addition to filing the final RHP, Udayshivakumar Infra Limited has also announced details like the opening and closing dates of the issue and the IPO pricing, among others. According to the company announcement, the public issue is slated to open for subscription on March 20, 2023. The issue will come to a close on March 23, 2023. 

The company has decided to price its shares within a band of ₹33 to ₹35 per equity share. The total size of the public issue comes up to ₹66 crores, which the company plans to use to achieve the objectives stated in the red herring prospectus. There’s no OFS (Offer For Sale) component to this public issue from the promoter. 

The minimum lot size of the IPO is 428, which means that investors desirous of subscribing to this issue would have to bid in multiples of 428. A major portion of the company’s public issue, 60% to be exact, has been reserved exclusively for retail investors. About 30% of the issue has been set aside for Non-Institutional Investors (NIIs), whereas the remaining 10% is for Qualified Institutional Buyers (QIBs). 

Objects of the Offer 

Since the entire IPO is a fresh issue of shares, all the proceeds from the public issue would go to the company. According to the red herring prospectus, Udayshivakumar Infra Limited plans to use the proceeds to satisfy the following objectives. 

  • To fund the working capital requirements of the company
  • To fund general corporate activities


Unlike most other public issues, the Udayshivakumar Infra Limited IPO primarily targets individual investors rather than institutional investors. This is one of the reasons why the pricing of the issue has been restricted to ₹33 to ₹35 per equity share. Setting such a low price band makes it very affordable for investors. 

The Udayshivakumar Infra Limited IPO opens for subscription on March 20, 2023, which is just a few days from now.
