India’s active pharmaceutical ingredients (API) manufacturer Supriya Lifescience has fixed its per-share price band ahead of its initial public offering, according to a company statement. The company has set a price range of INR 265-INR 274 per share for its INR 7bn ($92.6m) initial stake sale to the public.

The Mumbai-based company’s IPO will open for subscription on 16 December 2021 and close on 20 December, it said.

Fresh issue and OFS

Supriya Lifescience’s IPO comprises a fresh issue of shares of up to INR 2bn, as well as an Offer For Sale (OFS) of up to INR 5bn’s worth of shares by existing shareholders, according to the Red Herring Prospectus (RHP or final papers) that the company has filed with the domestic market regulator.

The company will use INR 923m of the net proceeds from the fresh issue to fund the company’s capital expenditure and another INR 600m for repayment of debt. An undisclosed amount would be used for general business purposes, it said.

The firm would also look at raising funds from anchor investors ahead of its IPO.

The difference between trading assets and CFDs
The main difference between CFD trading and trading assets, such as commodities and stocks, is that you don’t own the underlying asset when you trade on a CFD.
You can still benefit if the market moves in your favour, or make a loss if it moves against you. However, with traditional trading you enter a contract to exchange the legal ownership of the individual shares or the commodities for money, and you own this until you sell it again.
CFDs are leveraged products, which means that you only need to deposit a percentage of the full value of the CFD trade in order to open a position. But with traditional trading, you buy the assets for the full amount. In the UK, there is no stamp duty on CFD trading, but there is when you buy stocks, for example.
CFDs attract overnight costs to hold the trades (unless you use 1-1 leverage), which makes them more suited to short-term trading opportunities. Stocks and commodities are more normally bought and held for longer. You might also pay a broker commission or fees when buying and selling assets direct and you’d need somewhere to store them safely.
