Sebi Approved: Waaree Energies to launch Rs 1500 crore IPO

Waaree Energies, which claims to be India's largest manufacturer of solar modules, announced that the markets regulator Sebi has approved the company's initial public offering (IPO). The issue will have a face value of Rs 1,500 crore.



The company had filed proposal papers with Sebi in September. The IPO will consist of a fresh issue of shares worth Rs 1,350 crore and an offer by the company's promoters and existing shareholders to sell up to 4,007,500 equity shares. The offer for sale (OFS) comprises the sale of up to 1,315,000 equity shares by Hitesh Chimanlal Doshi, Virenkumar Chimanlal Doshi, and Mahavir Thermoequip; up to 40,000 equity shares by Samir Surendra Shah; and up to 22,500 equity shares by Nilesh Gandhi. Additionally, the company, in consultation with the issue's lead bankers, may consider a subsequent equity share offering, including a preferential offering, of up to Rs 270 crore. If this placement is successful, the size of the new issue will be reduced.


The issue's proceeds will be used to finance the solar cell manufacturing unit to the tune of Rs 910.31 crore and the solar module manufacturing facility to the tune of Rs 141.24 crore. The remainder of the proceeds will be used for corporate general purposes.

Waaree Energies is a major player in India's solar energy industry, focusing on photovoltaic (PV) module manufacturing. As of March 2021, the company had an aggregate installed capacity of 2 GW.
