The IPO comprises a fresh issue of Rs 630 crore and an offer for sale (OFS) of Rs 4.197 crore worth of equity shares by the promoters and investors. It is expected to raise around Rs 5,200 crore.

Nykaa was founded by Falguni Nayar, and is backed by private equity firm TPG.

Ecommerce beauty brand Nykaa is among the few profitable startups in the Indian startup ecosystem. It reported a net profit of Rs 61.96 crore for FY21 as compared to a loss of Rs 16.34 crore in the comparable previous fiscal.

Nykaa's revenues touched Rs 2,453 crore in FY21, recording a 38 percent year-on-year growth as compared to the previous fiscal.

Nykaa had earlier said it would use the proceeds of the IPO towards repayment of its debt, marketing its brands, opening retail stores and new warehouses etc.

Though it started as an online marketplace, it later turned into an omnichannel platform where it now has around 80 stores across 40 cities over three different formats.

As of August 2021, it offered approximately 3.1 million SKUs (stock-keeping units) from 4,078 national and international brands across business verticals.
