In news from the IPO space, Rossari Biotech's initial public offering (IPO) attracted bids for 60% of shares on the block yesterday - its day 1 of the bidding process.

As per the data, by 5 pm yesterday, the issue by specialty chemicals company had received bids for 49,30,030 shares, which was 60% of the issue size of 81,73,530 shares.

On Friday, the company raised Rs 1,488.7 million from anchor investors, who included top three fund houses - SBI Mutual Fund, HDFC Mutual Fund and ICICI Prudential Mutual Fund.

In the Rs 5 billion IPO, Rossari Biotech has fixed a price band of Rs 423-425 per equity share and the issue will remain open till July 15th.

Rossari Biotech's IPO comprises fresh issuance of shares worth Rs 500 million and sale of 1,05,00,000 equity shares by company's promoters through offer-for-sale route. Post the IPO, the promoter shareholding will fall to 73% from 95% earlier.

Investors can bid in lot sizes of 35 shares. The equity shares will be listed on the NSE and BSE.

The net proceeds from the IPO will be utilised for funding working capital requirements, repaying certain debt availed by the company and for general corporate purposes.

Rossari Biotech is a specialty chemicals manufacturing firm with focus on home and personal care, performance chemicals, textile specialty chemicals and animal health and nutrition products.

Early in March this year, Rossari had postponed its IPO plans due to the extreme volatility in the market due to the Covid-19 pandemic.

How the above IPO sails through remains to be seen. Stay tuned for more updates from this space.

Moving on to the news from pharma sector, Glenmark Pharmaceuticals has announced that it has commenced a Post Marketing Surveillance (PMS) study on FabiFlu to closely monitor the efficacy and safety of the drug in 1,000 patients that are prescribed with the oral antiviral, as part of an open-label, multicenter, single-arm study.

Glenmark Pharmaceuticals had last month launched antiviral drug favipiravir, under the brand name FabiFlu, for the treatment of cases of mild to moderate Covid-19.

Reportedly, FabiFlu, the first oral favipiravir approved medication in India for the treatment of the coronavirus disease, will be available as a 200mg tablet at a maximum retail price (MRP) of Rs 3,500 for a strip of 34 tablets.

The Drug Controller General of India (DCGI) granted Glenmark Pharma the permission to manufacture and market favipiravir for restricted emergency use in mild to moderate cases.

Favipiravir, which has been approved in Japan since 2014 for the treatment of novel or re-emerging influenza virus infections, has shown clinical improvement of up to 88% in mild to moderate Covid-19 cases, the company stated.

Glenmark had announced in May that it is conducting another clinical trial to evaluate the efficacy of two antivirals favipiravir and umifenovir as a combination therapy in moderate hospitalised adult Covid-19 patients in India.

How the above development pan out remains to be seen. We will keep you updated on all the news from this space.
