Joining the IPO bandwagon, Coimbatore-based SP Apparels has filed draft papers with capital markets regulator SEBI to raise at least Rs 215 crore through its initial public offer.

The company intends to garner up to Rs 215 crore through fresh issue of shares, while its existing shareholders will offload 9,00,000 equity shares, according to the Draft Red Herring Prospectus (DRHP) filed with SEBI.

Established in 1989, the company manufactures and exports knitted garments for infants and children. The firm also manufactures and retails menswear in India under the brand ‘Crocodile’.

The company said proceeds from the fresh issue would be utilised for repayment of debt, expansion and modernisation of manufacturing facilities at Salem in Tamil Nadu and opening of new stores for the sale of ‘Crocodile’ products.

The funds raised would be also used for addition of balancing machineries for its existing dyeing unit at Sipcot, Perundurai, in Tamil Nadu and other general corporate purposes.

The company intends to list its shares on the BSE and NSE.

The book running lead manager to the issue is Motilal Oswal Investment Advisors and Centrum Capital.

The company expects to realise the benefits of listing of the equity shares on the stock exchanges, including the enhancement of its brand name and provision of liquidity to the shareholders.

SP Apparels operates 20 manufacturing facilities in and around the region of Avinashi in Tamil Nadu.

The company said as of November 2015 its aggregate outstanding debt was Rs 251.8 crore comprising long-term borrowings, short-term borrowings and current maturities of long-term borrowings.

SP Apparels reported a net profit of Rs 10.1 crore in the 2014-15 fiscal.
