Hyundai Motor India Limited Files For $3 Billion IPO

Hyundai Motor India filed its draft red herring prospectus with SEBI on Saturday, aiming to raise about $3 billion through an IPO.


Hyundai Motor India Limited (HMIL), the Indian subsidiary of the South Korean automotive giant, filed its draft red herring prospectus (DRHP) with the Securities and Exchange Board of India (SEBI) on Saturday, aiming to raise approximately $3 billion (Rs 25,000 crore) through an initial public offering (IPO).

According to the DRHP, the IPO’s objectives are to conduct an Offer for Sale of up to 142,194,700 (over 142 million) equity shares with a face value of Rs 10 each by the promoter selling shareholder and to leverage the benefits of listing these shares on Indian stock exchanges.

“Our company expects that listing of the equity shares will enhance our visibility and brand image and provide liquidity and a public market for the equity shares in India,” the DRHP states.

If approved by the regulator, this IPO will be the largest in India since the $2.7 billion listing of the state-owned Life Insurance Corporation of India (LIC) in 2022.

The move however marks a significant milestone for Hyundai Motor India, underscoring its robust market presence and growth trajectory in the country.

Meanwhile, in terms of market performance, Hyundai Motor India reported a seven percent year-on-year growth in total sales in May, with 63,551 units sold.

For the fiscal year 2024, Hyundai Motor India ranks as the country’s second-largest carmaker, behind Maruti Suzuki in passenger sales volumes.
