Issue opens for subscription on 30.12.16 and will close on 06.01.2017. Minimum application is to be made for 2000 shares and in multiples thereon, thereafter. Post allotment, shares will be listed on NSE SME Emerge. Issue is solely managed by Pantomath Capital Advisors Pvt Ltd and Bigshare Services Pvt Ltd is the registrar to the issue. After initial issue at par, it issued further capital at a price ranging from Rs. 110 to Rs. 1968 and has also issued bonus in the ratio of 4 for 1 in March 2012 and 1 for 1 in December 2016.
