As per the company’s statement, it has put a price cap of Rs 360-432 per equity share. The initial share-sale programme will conclude on March 23. As per Draft Red Herring Prospectus, Gujarat-based Infibeam plans to come out with public issue of equity shares worth up to Rs 450 crore.

The company will be following the traditional IPO route and will be listing on the main board of Bombay Stock Exchange (BSE) and National Stock Exchange (NSE). The company will not be listing on the Institutional Trading Platform (ITP) for startups and technology companies which will be set up later.

However, last week company confirmed that two banks ICICI Securities and Kotak Mahindra Capital – had shown excitement about its public issue.
