Embassy Office Parks REIT Rs 4,750 Crore Public Offer Subscribed Over Two Times

REIT owns offices that house multinational tenants such as JP Morgan and Google


Blackstone-backed Embassy Office Parks REIT's Rs 4,750 crore ($689.85 million) initial public offering, the first by a real estate investment trust in India, was subscribed more than two times by 4 pm on the last day of sale on Wednesday.

Investors bid for about 175.8 million shares, or 2.47 times the 71.3 million on offer, stock exchange data showed.

The REIT, which owns offices that house multinational tenants such as JP Morgan and Google, will use proceeds of the IPO to reduce its debt and fund acquisition of assets, according to the IPO prospectus.

The offering comes at a time when the primary market in the country is seeing greenshoots, but analysts expect sentiment to remain cautious ahead of national elections starting in April.

At a minimum lot size of 800 units and a price band of Rs 299-300 per unit, the REIT's offering implies an investment of at least Rs 240,000.

Anchor investors had already committed to buy 58.1 million units at Rs 300 per unit, while Rs 876 crore worth of units were reserved for strategic investors.

The REIT aims to list its units on the National Stock Exchange of India Ltd and the BSE Ltd.

Morgan Stanley India, Kotak Mahindra Capital, JP Morgan India and DSP Merrill Lynch are global coordinators and book running lead managers for the offering.
