Rays Power Infra IPO announces completion of its Pre-IPO round of ₹54 crores today. Rays Power Infra IPO: The integrated solar power firm Rays Power Infra IPO announced the completion of its Pre-IPO round of ₹54 crores in order to raise funds and increase investor trust. As part of this process, the company intends to refile its Draft Red Herring Prospectus (DRHP) with the capital market regulator, Securities and Exchange Board of India (SEBI). Rays Power Infra’s Managing Director, Ketan Mehta, stated that the company intends to refile its DRHP for a larger fund at a much better valuation, given the recent flood of substantial fresh deals and predicted growth trajectory. To maintain its current development trajectory, the company will keep exploring opportunities for strategic alliances and capital raising.

This would represent a significant improvement in its financial performance. The initial offer comprised of a fresh issue of equity shares up to ₹300 crore and an offer for sale (OFS) by Promoter Selling Shareholders of up to 2.99 million shares. The OFS included up to 1.4 million shares by Ketan Mehta, up to 7.78 lakh shares by Pawan Kumar Sharma, and up to 7.78 lakh shares by Sanjay Garudapally.

Since its founding in 2011, the company has developed into a respected supplier of complete solar engineering, procurement, and construction (EPC) services.
