Tata Motors announced in a filing with the stock exchange that its subsidiary, Tata Technologies Limited, has submitted a draft red herring prospectus to the Securities and Exchange Board of India (SEBI) for an initial public offering (IPO) through an offer for sale.
The filing reads, “We wish to inform you that Tata Technologies Limited (“Tata Technologies”), a subsidiary of Tata Motors Limited (“the Company”), has informed the Company that it has today filed a draft red herring prospectus dated March 9, 2023 with the Securities and Exchange Board of India for an initial public offering by way of an offer for sale.”
The offer for sale involves 957, 089, 84 shares for cash, equivalent to roughly 23.60% of the paid-up share capital.
According to Tata Motors, the initial public offering is an offer-for-sale consisting of three components: A) Tata Motors Limited will offer up to 81,133,706 equity shares, representing up to 20% of Tata Technologies’ paid-up share capital, B) Alpha TC Holdings Pte Ltd. will offer up to 9,716,853 equity shares, equivalent to 2.40% of paid-up share capital, and C) Tata Capital Growth Fund 1 will offer up to 4,858,425 equity shares, representing 1.20% of paid-up share capital.
