Oyo to File for US$ 1.2 bn IPO Next Week

According to a leading financial daily, Oyo Hotels & Homes, a SoftBank Group-backed Indian hospitality startup, is expected to file for an initial public offering (IPO) next week.

The hotel aggregator's IPO is tentatively pegged at US$ 1-1.2 bn.

The initial share sale will consist of a fresh issue of shares and an offer for sale from existing shareholders.

The listing plan follows a stellar debut by food delivery firm Zomato in July. Berkshire Hathaway Inc.-backed Paytm and private equity firm TPG-backed Nykaa have also filed for their IPOs.

Oyo, in which SoftBank owns a 46% stake, has endured months of layoffs, cost-cuts and losses during the global health crisis. Its founder and CEO Ritesh Agarwal had said in July that business was likely to return to levels seen before the second wave of Covid-19 infections in India and grow from there.

Last month, it received a US$ 5 m investment from Microsoft.

We will keep you posted on more updates from this space. Stay tuned.
