The company has cut the size of its fresh issue of equity shares to ₹400 crore from ₹500 crore planned earlier, reported news agency PTI.

“The company has delivered consistent financial performance. Their revenue from operations grew at a 56.64% CAGR between FY20-22. The company has a strong order book of Rs. 2563 crs as on June, 2022. At the upper band, the issue is priced at PE multiple of around 30x (Post fresh issue) based on FY22 metrics, which looks reasonable. Defense stocks have remained in flavour recently due to government initiatives to push indigenous manufacturing and exports of defense equipments,” said Abhay Doshi, co-founder at UnlistedArena.
The company proposes to utilise the net proceeds from the fresh issue towards repayment/prepayment of certain borrowings availed of by the company, funding working capital requirements, investment in its wholly owned Subsidiary, Raneal Advanced Systems Private Limited, to fund its capital expenditure expenses, and general corporate purposes.
DCX Systems Ltd, the Bengaluru-based company, is primarily engaged in system integration and manufacturing a comprehensive array of cables and wire harness assemblies, and are also involved in kitting.
The company had filed a draft red herring prospectus (DRHP) with capital markets regulator SEBI in April this year to raise funds through the IPO.
Edelweiss Financial Services, Axis Capital and Saffron Capital Advisors are the book running lead managers to the issue. Link Intime India Private Ltd is the registrar of the share sale.
