Hindalco's Novelis Launches Roadshow For Its ₹7,850 Cr U.S. IPO

Novelis Inc., a wholly-owned subsidiary of Hindalco Industries Limited, has announced the commencement of a roadshow for its IPO.

What Happened: The announcement was made on Tuesday evening. The shares are held by Novelis’ sole shareholder, A.V Minerals (Netherlands) N.V., which is also a wholly owned subsidiary of Hindalco.

The IPO’s price per common share is estimated to be between $18.00 and $21.00. The steel major has applied to list its common shares on the New York Stock Exchange under the symbol “NVL.” The company plans to raise around $945 million (around ₹7,850 crore) at a valuation of $12.6 billion (around ₹1.04 lakh crore).

Novelis will not receive any proceeds from the sale of common shares by its sole shareholder. After the IPO, a wholly-owned subsidiary of Hindalco will own 555,000,000 shares, representing a 92.5% stake in the company.

Hindalco recently reported a 31.6% YoY jump in consolidated net profit to ₹3,174 crore in the March quarter, leading to a surge in its share price as brokerages maintained their “buy” calls on the company.
