Bharti Hexacom, a Bharti Airtel subsidiary, is set to open for IPO (Initial Public Offer) on April 3, 2024. Telecommunications Consultants India Limited (TCIL), a DoT's (Department of Telecommunications) unit, is set to sell a 15% stake in the company to the public. At present, TCIL owns a 30% stake in the company and the remaining stake is with Bharti Airtel. Post IPO, a 15% stake of TCIL will be sold to the public, and TCIL's stake will come down to 15% from the current 30%, while Bharti Airtel's stake will remain unchanged.




Since it is an offer for sale (OFS) from TCIL, no fresh proceeds will be generated for the company. TCIL would only be generating money from the stake sale. Bharti Hexacom has said in a late exchange filing on Saturday that bidding for anchor investors would start a day early on April 2, 2024. The IPO will start on April 3 and finish on April 5, 2024.
