The government to sell 10% in an OFS:

The government is planning to sell up to a 10% stake in the company. An application to this effect may soon be put in place. The government holds 84.83% of the firm. At current valuations, the sale of a 10% stake may fetch the government around 570 crore. The stake sale could be done through the offer for sale (OFS) route.

The company is building two submarines in collaboration with the French Naval Group. They launched the sixth Scorpene submarine of Project-75, “Vagsheer”. It also launched the fourth P15B-Visakhapatnam class Guided Missile Destroyer, namely ‘Surat’, and the second P17A Nilgiri Class Stealth Frigate, namely ‘Udaygiri’, in May. Mazagon has also pipelined other products for now. At the end of August, they will deliver a destroyer, which is 8,500 CR, and a fully tested submarine. Mazgoan has the highest revenue compared to other listed peers. With the initiatives taken by the Prime Minister of the in-house defence mechanism, we believe the firm to have huge potential and give high returns to its investors.
