Hyundai Motor Company has wholly owned its subsidiary, Hyundai Motor India Limited, since its inception in 1996. The IPO will involve the sale of portions of existing shares in the Indian subsidiary, with no new shares to be issued. The company aims to sell 142 million shares out of its 812 million shares in Hyundai Motor India Limited, potentially valuing the subsidiary at around $30 billion.

The IPO is expected to provide Hyundai with funds to expand its operations in India, the world’s third-largest car market. Hyundai Motor Group Chairman Chung Eui-sun emphasized the company’s commitment to growth in the Indian market, where Hyundai is the second-best-selling automaker after Maruti Suzuki.
