According to the draft prospectus, the net proceeds raised from the issue would be deployed towards "working capital requirements, repayment of loans and for general corporate purposes." Net proceeds from the sale of existing shares (5.9 million shares of face value of Rs 4 each) will be paid to the selling shareholders.

While the working capital requirement arises primarily from sundry debtors relating to credit given to advertisers, security deposits and advance income tax, the 200 million outstanding loan is part of the total outstanding term loan of Rs 300 million. The prospectus does not mention specifics about the general corporate purposes requirements.

Issue allocation

The issue is being made through the 100 per cent book building route where at least 60 per cent of the issue will be allocated on a discretionary basis to qualified institutional buyers (QIBs). At least 15 per cent of the issue will be available for allocation on a proportionate basis to non-institutional bidders and the remaining 25 per cent of the issue will be available for allocation on a proportionate basis to retail bidders.
