Ami Organics is one of the leading R&D driven manufacturers of specialty chemicals with varied end usage, focussed towards the development and manufacturing of pharma intermediates for regulated and generic APIs (active pharmaceutical ingredients) and NCE (new chemical entity) and key starting material for agrochemicals and fine chemicals.

This is the company's second attempt to go public.

Intensive Fiscal Services, Ambit Private Limited and Axis Capital are the managers to the offer.
