Glenmark Life Sciences Makes Lacklustre Debut. Shares List At 4% Premium

Aug 6, 2021

Glenmark Life Sciences made a market debut with its shares getting listed at a 4% premium over issue price of Rs 720 per share on the bourses.

Its disappointing listing comes in the backdrop of an initial public offer (IPO) frenzy wherein many issues are getting listed on the bourses at steep premium.

The stock opened at Rs 750 on the NSE and at Rs 751 on the BSE.

Post listing, the market capitalisation of the company stood at Rs 92.7 bn, according to BSE data.

Many market analysts had assigned a subscribe rating to the issue considering the business growth outlook and almost stable operating margins.

Glenmark Life Sciences is a subsidiary of Glenmark Pharmaceuticals.

In 2019, the active pharmaceutical ingredients (API) manufacturing business of Glenmark was spun off into Glenmark Life Sciences as part of a broader reorganisation focusing on the API business.

The Rs 15.1 bn IPO by this API maker was sold from 27 July to 29 July.

Utilisation of funds raised through public issue

The company intends to use the proceeds from the public issue for the payment of outstanding purchase considerations to the promoter for the spin-off of the API business from the promoter and into the company.

It also aims to use it to fund capital expenditure requirements which includes the expansion of capacity at the Dahej (Gujarat) manufacturing site to meet the anticipated future demand of its generic API products.
