Kolkata: A Future Group company promoted by retail czar Kishore Biyani will hit the capital market in the next 3-4 months to raise Rs 2,000 crore in what would be the group's second public offer after Pantaloons India.

"We will raise Rs 2000 crore from a proposed IPO by one of our group company," Kishore Biyani CEO and MD of Future group said. Biyani, however, declined to name the company that would hit the capital market.

The group plans to invest in a big way in logistics business and reportedly raise USD 500 million for the same. Logistics business would provide the group to stay competitive from the new large players in retail.
Biyani, speaking about his retail expansion plan, said that the company plans to expand its small retail format targeted at urban poors.

"I want to increase the retail outlets for urban poor," Biyani said who has stores of all consumer categories.

The group has several retail formats including the garment brand Pantaloons, supermarkets Big Bazaar, specialty stores Central and Home Town and online market place Future Bazaar.

He also said he would launch the Central brand in Kolkata shortly and location has already been identified for the store.
