The IPO consists of a fresh issue of equity shares worth INR 200 Cr and an offer for sale (OFS) of up to 56.25 million shares.

Bengaluru-based healthtech platform Portea Medical has raised $19.87 million (INR 165.8 Cr) through rights issue.

The issue price of the shares is INR 23.96 per share. According to the company’s regulatory filing with the Registrar of Companies, Portea’s board approved a special resolution to issue 69.2 million Series D1 compulsory convertible preference shares (CCPS).

The fundraise comes a year after Securities and Exchange Board of India (SEBI) gave a green signal to its Initial Public Offering.

Founded by Krishnan and Meena Ganes in 2013, Portea is a consumer home healthcare provider, offering a wide range of healthcare services. So far, the healthtech company has raised more than $75.1 million.

The company operates across primary care, preventive healthcare, nutrition, chronic disease management, elderly care, and post-operative care providing home visits from doctors, nurses, and physiotherapists, facilitates lab tests at home, as well as offering medical equipment on rent or purchase.

Portea’s IPO Plans

As per the report by Entrackr, in July 2022, Portea filed its Draft Red Herring Prospectus (DRHP) with plans to raise INR 800 Cr ($95.9 million) through its IPO.

The IPO consists of a fresh issue of equity shares worth INR 200 Cr and an offer for sale (OFS) of up to 56.25 million shares.

On March 10, 2023, the healthtech firm submitted an update to its DRHP before gaining approval from SEBI in April 2023. Following the IPO, Portea is looking forward to listing on the BSE and NSE following the IPO.

According to data released by Entrackr, the startup’s operating revenue in the fiscal year 2022-23 (FY23) was INR 145 Cr, a 3.3% decrease from INR 150 Cr the previous year. Portea’s expenses increased by 32.5% from INR 40 crore in FY22 to INR 53 crore in FY23.

Recently, Portea said it achieved a milestone of crossing 10 million appointments conducted at patients' homes over more than a decade.
