Out of the total allocation of 1.84 crore equity shares to anchor investors, 69.67 lakh equity shares or around 38 per cent of the total were allocated to 8 domestic mutual funds through a total of 17 schemes, the data showed. The company’s IPO will be a pure offer-for-sale (OFS) of up to Rs 1,500 crore by its existing promoter General Atlantic Singapore Fund Pte Ltd.

The company will not receive any proceeds from the offer, as all of it will go to the promoter. At present, the promoter and promoter group hold a 74.37 per cent stake in the company.

About 75 per cent of the issue size has been reserved for qualified institutional investors, 15 per cent for non-institutional investors and the remaining 10 per cent for retail investors. Investors can bid for a minimum of 40 shares and in multiples thereof. KFintech is an investor and issuer solutions provider, serving asset managers such as mutual funds, alternative investment funds (AIFs), wealth managers, pension funds and corporate issuers, as well as international clients in Southeast Asia and Hong Kong.
