ICICI Securities and JM Financial are amongst the investment banks working on the IPO which is intended to be a mixture of primary and secondary issue of shares. The plan is to file the documents with Sebi before the end of September. The planned listing will provide a partial exit to 3i Group & also facilitate debt repayment and general corporate purposes
