Maini Precision Products files for IPO

Bangalore-based Maini Precision Products Pvt Ltd has filed its draft herring prospectus with the capital markets regulator Securities and Exchange Board of India for its initial public offering.

The firm had raised funding from AIG Capital (now Pinebridge) in 2005 and provided an exit to the PE firm in 2012. However, the deal was not fully completed due to some pending clearances and Pinebridge continues to own a 0.58 per cent stake, though this is proposed to be bought back.
