What's even more interesting is that Ullu is going all-in with a fresh issue of up to 62,62,800 equity shares – no offer for sale (OFS) component here. Narnolia Financial Services Ltd and Skyline Financial Services Ltd are taking the lead as the book-running managers. It's a star-studded lineup, folks!
