Mumbai-based private hospital chain Jupiter Hospital has submitted a draft red herring prospectus (DRHP) to the Securities and Exchange Board of India (SEBI) for an initial public offering (IPO), reported The Economic Times, citing sources.

The IPO will comprise a fresh issue of Rs6.15bn ($74.7m) and an offer for sale (OFS) of 4.45 million shares.

Sources indicate that the total size of the IPO will be between Rs9bn and Rs11bn ($109.3m to $133.6m).

The hospital chain is also likely to consider a pre-IPO placement of Rs1.23bn ($14.9m).

Its promoters, Dr Ajay Thakker, Dr Ankit Thakker, and Western Medical Solutions, will not reduce their stake in the IPO.

The funds raised through the IPO will be utilised for expanding the hospital network and potentially reducing debt.
