Electric vehicle maker, Ola Electric has received approval from SEBI for a Rs.7,250 crore IPO (Initial public offering), according to sources who did not wish to be named, Moneycontrol reported.

Ola Electric was the first-ever Indian EV two-wheeler maker to file for an IPO. The firm had filed its draft red herring prospectus (DRHP) with the markets regulator on December 22, 2023, according to the article.

Ola Electric has roped in Kotak Mahindra Capital and Goldman Sachs for an IPO in early 2024, Moneycontrol reported.

The IPO consisted a fresh issue of Rs.5,500 crore and an offer for sale (OFS) of ₹1,750 crore totalling to Rs.7,250 crore. Existing shareholders were said to sell 95.19 million shares in the OFS, as per the firm's DRHP, the article read.

Ola Electric’s founder Bhavish Aggarwal will be selling 47.3 million shares. The firm’s initial investors including AlphaWave, Alpine, DIG Investment, Matrix, and others will also be selling 47.89 million shares via the OFS, according to Moneycontrol.

As per the DRHP, Ola Electric will utilise the funds for capex, repaying debt, and research and development (R&D). The firm will use around Rs.1,226 crore for capex, and Rs.800 crore to repay debt. It will spend the most, about Rs.1,600 crore, on R&D, and ₹350 crore on inorganic growth, according to the article.

Ola Electric presently dominates the EV two-wheeler market with around 52% market share. According to data from the Government’s VAHAN website, the company registered 34,000 units during the month, marking a growth of 54% year-on-year growth.

Ola Electric has reported consolidated revenues of Rs.2,782 crore, up nearly 510% in the financial year 2022-23, even as its net loss increased to Rs.1,472 crore due to increased expenses.
