Food and beverages major Devyani International, the largest franchisee of Pizza Hut, KFC and Costa Coffee in India is likely to launch its IPO ( initial public offer) between 4th August to 6thth August, 2021 , multiple industry sources with knowledge of the matter told Moneycontrol.

The firm had announced the Sebi approval for its DRHP ( draft red herring prospectus) on 19th July, 2021 to raise around Rs 1,400 crores and the final size may possibly be increased , these sources added.

Devyani International is an arm of diversified conglomerate RJ Corp, the largest bottler for Pepsi Co in India and it also counts Yum! Brands, the second-largest QSR (quick-service restaurant) company in the world, and Singapore’s Temasek as investors.

The moves comes close on the heels of the big-bang Zomato listing which has shaken up the food segment and would make Devyani International, the third QSR ( quick service restaurant) player to list on the domestic bourses in recent times post Burger King and Barbecue Nation.

“ Devyani International plans to launch the IPO on 4th August and as of now the plan is for the listing to take place on 16th August,” one of the individuals above told Moneycontrol adding that the dates may change depending on market conditions.

A second individual confirmed the likely launch and listing timeline.
A third person also confirmed both the likely dates .

All the three individuals above spoke to Moneycontrol on the condition of anonymity.

Moneycontrol has sent an email query and could not immediately elicit a comment from the firm and its backers.

The shares of listed peers Burger King & Barbeceu Nation have risen by 26 per cent and 27 per cent respectively in the last 3 months.

The listing plans of Devyani International were first reported by Moneycontrol on February 19, 2021.
