The long-awaited initial public offering (IPO) of Hindustan Aeronautics Limited (HAL) could finally see the light of day by the end of August, said Chairman and Managing Director T Suvarna Raju.
Speaking to CNBC-TV18, Raju said the IPO of the state-owned aerospace and defence company has been delayed as it required some concessions as far as putting data in the public domain was concerned.
"We will have to wait till the results of the past financial year are audited," said Raju. "We should be ready (for the IPO) by July or August."
