India: Travel portal ixigo seeks to raise up to $240m via IPO route

Online travel portal ixigo is looking to raise 750 crore through a primary issue of shares, as part of its 1,500-1,800 crore initial public offering (IPO) expected later this fiscal year, two people aware of the discussions said, requesting anonymity. The company has appointed Kotak Mahindra Bank, ICICI Securities, Axis Capital Ltd and Nomura as its investment bankers, and will file its draft red herring prospectus in July, said one of the two people.

The travel portal, which has so far raised close to $22 million as part of its primary fundraise, will look to give a partial exit to investors through its public offering. ixigo counts Sequoia Capital India, Fosun RZ, Elevation Capital and Micromax Informatics as its investors. The company is also in talks to raise a pre-IPO round in the coming months, they added.
