The IPO of Bharti Hexacom comprises exclusively of an offer-for-sale (OFS) segment, devoid of any issuance of new shares.

Telecommunications Consultants India, the singular public shareholder in the firm, intends to sell 7.5 crore equity shares, equating to a 15% stake in the OFS.

Bharti Airtel, led by Sunil Mittal, owns a 70% stake, equivalent to 35 crore shares, while the remaining 30% ownership, comprising 15 crore equity shares, is held by non-promoter TCIL.

In accordance with the company's valuation target range of 28,000 crore to 35,000 crore, the public sector firm aims to reach the anticipated figure through the gradual offloading of equity in two phases.

Operating in Rajasthan and the Northeast regions of India, Bharti Hexacom provides mobile services, with Airtel retaining a majority stake in the subsidiary.

The Northeast telecommunication circles encompass Arunachal Pradesh, Manipur, Meghalaya, Mizoram, Nagaland, and Tripura.

Improving from an average revenue per user (ARPU) of 135 in FY21, Bharti Hexacom has elevated this figure to 195 during the six-month period ending September 2023.

As of September 2023, the company's customer base totaled 29.1 million across both circles.
