Delhi Newspaper Hindustan Times To Raise $56-60 Million Through IPO


Business Standard: It appears that the HT Media, the Delhi-based newspaper group that is launching a Mumbai edition, is expecting to raise Rs 250-270 crore ($56-60 million) through an IPO.
Of the money raised via the fresh issue, the company has earmarked Rs 76.40 crore for capital expenditure, Rs 76 crore for sales and marketing and Rs 10 crore for its radio services.
