New Delhi-based logistics startup Delhivery’s initial public offering (IPO) will open for subscriptions on May 11 and close on May 13. Delhivery Board had last week approved a proposal to go public listing and the company had earlier planned to spend Rs. 7,460 crore to reduce the size of the issue to Rs. 5,300 crore.

In the run-up to going public, the Delhivery has appointed three independent directors, including Romesh Sobti, former CEO and managing director of Indusind Bank, Kalpana Morparia, the former chairman of JPMorgan Southeast Asia, and Saugata Gupta, CEO and managing director of Marico.

Kotak Mahindra Capital, Citigroup, Morgan Stanley, and BofA Securities are managing the issue. Delhivery had applied for its IPO with the Securities and Exchange Board of India in November last year.

Due to the chaotic market conditions, Delhivery delayed the launch of the offer, which was initially scheduled for March.

“We want to go public when our company is well understood. While valuation is a factor (for delays), it is not a decisive factor – because we do not need capital, and the market conditions are currently rough,” said Sahil Barua, Delhivery co-founder and chief executive.


Recently, Delhivery has invested in a logistics automation solutions provider, Falcon Autotech. The investment is in line with Delhivery’s objective of continuous investment in future-ready hardware solutions.

The company operated 20 automated sorting centers, 124 gateways and 83 fulfillment centers across India till June last year.

The logistic startup covers more than 17,000 pin codes. The logistics company offers a complete suite of logistics services such as TL freight, cross border, express parcel transportation, PTL, supply chain and technology services.

Delhivery works with over 21,000 customers and has completed over 1 billion shipments. The logistic company plans to deploy Rs 1,000 crore to fund its acquisition plans.

The logistics company also plans to deploy Rs 2,000 crore to grow its network & infrastructure, expand its existing business lines and invest in adjacencies, and upgrade and improve its logistics operating system.

Other startups like Boat, Oyo Hotels & Homes and Snapdeal are moving slowly on their IPO plans and SEBI has yet to clear these proposals.
