Hindustan Media Ventures Ltd is entering the capital market on July 5, 2010, with a public issue of equity shares of Rs 10 each for cash at a price (including a premium to be determined through a 100 per per cent book building process) aggregating up to Rs 2,700 million. The price band has been fixed between Rs 162 and Rs 175 per equity share. The issue closes on July 7, 2010.

The equity shares offered through the Red Herring prospectus are proposed to be listed on the Bombay Stock Exchange (BSE) and the National Stock Exchange (NSE). The book running lead managers are Edelweiss Capital Ltd and Kotak Mahindra Capital Company Ltd.

The money raised from the IPO would be used to clear company’s liabilities (around Rs 135 crore), while the rest would be kept aside for investment purpose.
