Gurugram-based Delhivery is planning to raise about INR 7,460 Cr through an initial public offering (IPO). The logistics unicorn’s existing investors, including the largest shareholder SoftBank would offload part of their shares in the offer for sale, which is expected to aggregate up to INR INR 2,460 Cr.

As shareholders and founders look to offload their shares from the company, here is a look at the shareholding pattern of the logistics major.

Masayoshi Son-led SoftBank holds 141,593,300 equity shares, including those accrued upon conversion of CCPS (compulsory convertible preference shares) through SVF Doorbell (Cayman) Ltd, thereby holding 22.78% stake in Delhivery, according to the draft red herring prospectus (DRHP).

The average cost of acquisition of shares (including CCPS) for SVF Doorbell was INR 196.19 per share. In the proposed IPO, the fund plans to sell a stake worth up to INR INR 750 Cr.

Washington-headquartered Carlyle Group owns 7.42% stake in the company through CA Swift Investments. On the day of the submission of the DRHP (November 2), Carlyle held 46,131,800 shares which it acquired at an average cost of INR 139.88 per share. CA Swift Investments has offered to offload stocks worth up to INR 920 Cr.

Singapore-based Deli CMF Pte Ltd, is another selling shareholder and holds 6,879,000 equity shares or 1.11% stake in the company. Delhi CMF’s average cost of acquisition of shares was INR 142.91 apiece. It will offload stocks worth INR 400 Cr in the INR 2,460 Cr offer for sale.

Further, Times Internet, the digital arm of Times Group, holds 5.10% stake with 31,703,900 equity shares which it acquired at an average cost of INR 3.63 per share. It plans to offload stake worth INR 330 Cr. Vineet Jain-led Times Group also owns a 1.24% stake in the company through Bennett, Coleman and Company Limited.

Delhivery founders Sahil Barua, Mohit Tandon, Suraj Saharan and Kapil Bharti hold a mere 6.97% in total. Barua, the MD and CEO holds 13,622,400 shares (post conversion of CCPS), accounting for 2.19% of the stake. He, however, would not be offloading his stake through the OFS.

The selling shareholders include Kapil Bharati (Chief Technology Officer), Mohit Tandon and Suraj Saharan (Head of New Ventures).

Bharati, holds 6,922,200 shares, adding up to 1.11% of the shareholding. The average cost of acquisition of the shares held by the CTO is INR 35.18 per share. He has offered to sell stake worth up to 14 Cr in the company.

Saharan, the Head of New Ventures, owns 11,105,400 shares or a 1.79% stake in the startup and has put stocks worth INR 6 Cr on the block.

Mohit Tandon, who holds 1.88% stake and plans to sell stake worth up to INR 40 Cr, quit the company along with another cofounder Bhavesh Manglani earlier this year and their promoter status was reclassified.

The average cost of acquisition for both Saharan and Tandon was INR 0.10 per share.

The DRHP said that the INR 2,460 Cr proposed to be raised from the OFS would not be directed towards the company and only the INR 5,000 Cr raised from the fresh issue will be considered as net proceeds.

Out of the net proceeds of INR 5,000 Cr, the company will utilise INR 1,250 Cr or 25% of the proceeds for funding inorganic growth through acquisitions and investments. Further, half of the proceeds (INR 2,500 Cr) will be used for financing organic initiatives.

It also plans to utilise up to 25% of the net process for general corporate purposes. However, the amount will be finalised based on the offer price.

Founded in 2011, the Gurugram-based unicorn offers logistics services such as express parcel transportation, LTL and FTL freight, reverse logistics, cross-border, B2B & B2C warehousing, end-to-end supply chain services and technology services.
