Hudco has set a price band of Rs56-60 per share for the IPO. The IPO comprises an offer for sale of 200.19 million shares by the central government, which, at the upper end of the price band, could fetch it Rs1,201.1 crore.

IDBI Capital Markets and Securities Ltd, ICICI Securities Ltd, Nomura Financial Advisory and Securities (India) Pvt. Ltd and SBI Capital Markets Ltd are managing the initial share sale.

State-owned Hudco has been providing loans for housing and urban infrastructure projects in India for more than 46 years. The company, which provides housing loans across three categories— social housing, residential real estate and retail finance—has been conferred the Miniratna status by the government of India.

Hudco’s total outstanding loan portfolio as of 31 December was Rs36,385.8 crore, comprising 30.86% of housing finance loans and 69.14% of urban infrastructure finance loans and project-linked bonds.

On the urban infra side, Hudco lends for projects relating to water supply; roads and transport, which includes railways and ports; power; emerging sectors, which includes special economic zones, industrial infrastructure, gas pipelines, oil terminals and telecom sector projects; commercial infrastructure and others, which includes shopping centres, market complexes, malls-cum-multiplexes, hotels and office buildings.

The Hudco IPO will be the first initial share sale by a government-owned entity this year.
