Ixigo will initiate its public offering from (10th June to 12th June) 2024 with a price band of Rs 88-93 with a minimum bid quantity of 161 shares.

Before the anchor investment round, SAIF Partners owned 20.52% while Peak XV and Micromax held 13.81% and 5.52%, respectively. Ixigo’s co-founders Aloke Bajpai and Rajnish Kumar cumulatively command 16.65% of the company.
