Capillary IPO | The INR 850 Cr Offer

Earlier this week, Capillary had filed its DRHP to raise INR 850 Cr through IPO. 

The startup’s offer includes fresh issue of shares worth INR 200 Cr and an offer for sale of worth INR 650 Cr.

CTIPL or Capillary Technologies International PTE Ltd, the Singapore parent company of Capillary Technologies will be the only selling shareholder during the IPO.

The development comes almost two months after Inc42 exclusively reported about Capillary Technologies’ plans of domestic IPO.

As per the DRHP, Capillary Technologies in consultation with BRLMs (Book Running Lead Manager) may consider a pre-IPO placement. 

The startup hasn’t unveiled its pre-IPO placement amount yet. However, it said if the pre-IPO placement is completed, the fresh issue will be reduced to the extent of pre-IPO placement. 

Though Capillary Technologies is backed by Warburg Pincus, Sequoia Capital, Avataar Capital, and Filter Capital among others, Capillary is a fully owned subsidiary of CTIPL.

Founded in August 2008 by IIT Kharagpur alumni Aneesh Reddy and Krishna Mehra, Capillary Technologies is an omnichannel engagement and commerce solution startup. 

It claims to have a stronghold in India, Southeast Asia, MENA, China, among other countries. The startup offers 100+ loyalty programmes, and has over 120K stores and more than 500 Mn consumers. Over the years, it raised more than $100 Mn in funding.

Indian Startups In The Public Market Arena 

With the filing of its DRHP, the SaaS startup has joined the list of new-age companies waiting to hit the public markets in 2022.

At least 16 startups are expected to go public next year. The giants in the India startup ecosystem which are likely to open their public offers next year include hospitality unicorn OYO, logistics major Delhivery, ecommerce giant Flipkart, mobility unicorn Ola among others.

The year 2021 was a pioneering year in terms of startups going public, starting with the bumper listing of Zomato in July. It was followed by the likes of Paytm, Nykaa, Policybazaar among others.
