After withdrawing its initial draft red herring prospectus in April 2022, Inox Green Energy Services has received SEBI approval on its second draft red herring prospectus. Inox Green now plans to come out with its Initial Public Offering (IPO) by October 2022 and raise Rs 740 crore to fund its expansion plans. 

Inox Green had first filed its draft red herring prospectus in February 2022 but withdrew it in April 2022 for unknown reasons. In June 2022, Inox Green Energy then filed a draft red herring prospectus again for the second time. Recently, SEBI approved the draft red herring prospectus and as news spread about Inox Green's prospective IPO between October and November 2022, share prices rose by 8% in a day. 

Inox Green's first DRHP filing: Inox Green's first IPO was a Rs 740 crore IPO that was supposed to be made of two parts:

  • A share sale worth Rs 370 crore by Inox Wind
  • Fresh issue of shares worth Rs 370 crore.    

But the DRHP was withdrawn and the reasons were not disclosed.

Inox Green is currently trading at Rs 143 as on September 19, 2022.

What does Inox Green exactly do? Inox Green Energy Services basically provides long-term operation and maintenance (O&M) services for wind farm projects in India.
