The FPO is likely to open on 20th September and close on 23rd September. The government plans to sell 5%, or 427.77 million shares, through the offer
New Delhi: State-owned exploration major Oil and Natural Gas Corporation (ONGC) is expected to file papers for its much-delayed Rs12,000 crore share sale with market regulator Securities and Exchange Board of India (SEBI) today, reports PTI.
The follow-on public offer (FPO) is likely to open on 20th September and close on 23rd September, sources privy to the development said.
The board of ONGC had last week approved the red herring prospectus (RHP) that will be filed with SEBI today. The government plans to sell 5%, or 427.77 million shares, through the FPO.
Sources said the RHP incorporates the financials of the company till the April-June quarter.
The FPO was originally planned in the 2010-11 fiscal, but the launch was later deferred to 5th April as the company did not have an adequate number of independent directors on its board to meet market regulator SEBI's listing norms.
It was then rescheduled for 5th July, but was again deferred due to adverse market conditions.
The government had in January appointed Citigroup, Nomura Holdings, Bank of America Corp, HSBC Holdings, JM Financial Services and Morgan Stanley to manage ONGC's share sale.
After the FPO, the government's stake in ONGC will come down to 69.14% from the current level of 74.14%.
The government's ad-hoc subsidy sharing mechanism has cast a shadow over ONGC's share sale during recent months.
