Upcoming IPOs: Resubmission of IPO Papers by Aadhar Housing Finance and Northern Arc Capital 

Here are the details of the two more companies that have filed their IPO papers for the fresh issues:

Aadhar Housing Finance IPO

Aadhar Housing Finance, backed by Blackstone, has resubmitted its draft documents for an initial public offering (IPO) to the Securities and Exchange Board of India (SEBI). The aim is to raise up to Rs 5,000 crore this year. 

  • Re-submission Date: January 30
  • Proposed IPO Amount: Up to Rs 5,000 crore

The proposed Aadhar Housing Finance IPO will consist of fresh shares valued at up to Rs 1,000 crore and an offer-for-sale component worth up to Rs 4,000 crore, with Blackstone reducing its ownership stake through the share sale. 

Objectives of Aadhar Housing Finance IPO

The primary objectives of the fresh shares issuance are to meet future capital requirements for lending activities and for general corporate purposes.

Leading financial institutions such as ICICI Securities, Nomura, Citi, SBI Capital, and Kotak Mahindra Capital are assisting Aadhar Housing Finance with its listing plan. 

Previously, Aadhar Housing Finance had submitted IPO papers in January 2021 and received approval from the regulator in May 2022. 

However, as the approval validity expires after a year, companies interested in pursuing the IPO route again must refile their documents.

Northern Arc Capital IPO 

Northern Arc Capital has once again submitted its IPO papers, this time with an increased fresh issue size of Rs 500 crore.

  • Re-submission Date: Not specified
  • Increased Fresh Issue Size: Rs 500 crore

The IPO includes the issuance of new shares worth Rs 500 crore, along with the sale of 2.1 crore equity shares by multiple investors in the offer-for-sale (OFS), including LeapFrog Financial Inclusion India, Accion Africa-Asia Investment Company, and others.

Additionally, the company, a professionally managed non-banking finance firm based in Chennai, may explore raising up to Rs 100 crore before submitting the red herring prospectus to the ROC, known as a pre-IPO placement.

Previously, Northern Arc Capital had filed its IPO papers in July 2021 and obtained approval from the capital markets regulator in September 2021. 

However, it couldn’t debut on Dalal Street within the one-year period following SEBI’s approval.

IPO Listing This Week

On February 6, BLS E-Services, a provider of business correspondence services, will hit the stock market. 

It’s the only company from the mainboard segment debuting. 

The offer was highly popular and oversubscribed 162.47 times. 

Each share will be priced at Rs 135, with the total offer valued at Rs 311 crore.


With these IPOs opening this week, investors can analyse their potential and consider participating in them. The IPOs not only represent individual company growth but also contribute to the broader economy through capital infusion and primary market expansion. 

Stay tuned for further market updates.
