Condom maker Mankind Pharma has filed its draft red herring prospectus (DRHP) with market regulator SEBI to raise funds through an initial public offering (IPO).
The IPO will involve an offer for sale (OFS) of more than 4 million shares by the company’s founders and existing shareholders. Therefore, the company will not receive any proceeds from the offer and all the money will be received by the selling shareholders.
The company manufactures a diverse range of pharmaceutical products in various acute and chronic therapeutic areas, as well as several consumer healthcare products.
Its wide range includes categories of condoms, pregnancy detection, emergency contraception, antacids, vitamin and mineral supplements and acne products.
