Indegene Ltd, a healthcare tech firm focused on the global life sciences industry, has filed preliminary papers with capital markets regulator Sebi to raise as much as Rs 3,200 crore through an Initial Public Offering (IPO).
The IPO comprises a fresh issue of equity shares worth up to Rs 950 crore and an Offer For Sale (OFS) of up to 3.63 crore equity shares by existing investors, according to the Draft Red Herring Prospectus (DRHP).
The OFS consists of up to 27 lakh equity shares to be sold by individual selling shareholders — Manish Gupta, Rajesh Bhaskaran Nair, and Anita Nair — and up to 3.36 crore equity shares by existing investors, including Carlyle, Brighton Park Capital and the Nadathur Family Office.

According to merchant banking sources, the company is expected to mobilise Rs 3,200 crore through the initial share-sale.
The funds raised through the fresh issue would be used to pay debt, funding capital expenditure requirements, payment of deferred consideration for one of its past acquisitions, funding inorganic growth and general corporate purposes.
The company may consider a pre-IPO placement of equity shares to the tune of Rs 190 crore and if such placement is undertaken, the fresh issue size will be reduced.
