Current performance prediction and its impact on IPO

Especially with management change like the hiring of Neetika Bhatia as CHRO, and Puneeth Bekal as CMO, it shows that the company is trying hard to change the way it does business. The effects can be seen in its quarterly reports. 

CEO Abhimanyu Munjal’s statement, expressing the company’s ambitious goal of achieving a Rs. 1,000 crore profit mark, also adds to this forward-looking perspective. This public statement of their goal signals the management’s confidence as well.

  • The promoters – the Munjal family own around 35-39 percent
  • The remaining stake is in the hands of private equity investors such as Credit Suisse, Apollo Global, and a few dealers of Hero MotoCorp.
