Uniparts India IPO consists entirely of an offer for sale (OFS) of 1.44 crore shares from its current promoters and shareholders. Ashoka Investment Holdings and Ambadevi Mauritius Holding are divesting their stake in the company by selling their entire holding of over 93 lakh shares. The current promoters are selling over 44 lakh shares and they hold 75.54% of a stake in the company. Uniparts India will not receive any capital from the IPO.
The company reported a revenue of Rs 948 crore in FY21 and a PAT sum of Rs 92 crore, while their earnings per share (EPS) was Rs 20.95. The revenue accrued from countries outside India is 72.3% in FY22, making Uniparts India extremely vulnerable to currency fluctuations. Currency prices further influence the company in countries where a portion of their manufacturing occurs. Further, the company is dependent on a limited number of customers. Revenue from their top ten customers amounted to 70.42% in FY22. QIIs (qualified institutional investors) will receive 50% of the issue, whereas retail investors will be allocated 35%. The remaining 15% will be set for non-institutional players.
