A very critical function of RIL as a merchant bank is issue management activities. As issue manager, RIL manages the Initial Public Offering (IPO), right offerings, repeat offerings of shares and debentures. It also helps an issuer to place shares with public/institutional investors prior to IPO. Issue management activity encompasses preparation of prospectus (in case of IPO and repeat offering) and right offer documents (in case of right offer), submission of those to Bangladesh Securities and Exchange Commission and obtaining its consent. RIL also provides logistic and other support in collection of application of money, scrutiny of application forms, arrangement of lottery in case of over subscription, distribution of allotment letters and refund warrants, where applicable.
