When contacted, company officials refused to the valuations for the IPO, however, a section of the media has reported that DB Corp plans to raise around Rs 450 crore through this IPO.

It is also learnt that DB Corp is planning to expand to new markets in the next two years and would focus on Tier II and III cities. Most of the IPO proceeds would be used to set up publishing units in new markets and further expansions.

DB Corp publishes seven newspapers, 48 newspaper editions and 128 sub-editions in three languages (Hindi, Gujarati and English) in 11 states in India.
