IPO review – KIMS Hospitals
KIMS Hospitals or Krishna Institute of Medical Sciences Hospital is a multi-speciality hospital chain with 9 centres, focused on the Andhra Pradesh-Telangana region. The KIMS Hospital IPO seeks to raise a sizeable Rs 2,143 crore (at the upper end of its price band of Rs 815-825). Of this, Rs 1943 crore is an offer for sale from PE investor General Atlantic, the promoters, and 44 other shareholders. The remaining will be used to pay off the already low borrowings and for general corporate purposes. Does the KIMS Hospital IPO make for a good long-term bet?
