About Macrotech Developers
Known for its brand name Lodha, Macrotech Developers Ltd was incorporated in 1995 as Lodha Developers Pvt Ltd. It changed its name to Macrotech Developers in June 2019. It is one of the largest real estate developers in India based on residential sales for FY14–20. It focuses on affordable and mid-income housing and has residential projects in the Mumbai Metropolitan Region (MMR) and Pune.
It is the market leader in the MMR with a market share of around 10% as of FY20. However, owing to the overall slowdown in the real estate sector, the company’s revenue fell 4% and its profit declined 35.5% during FY18-20.

The company plans to use about ₹1,500 crore to clear its debt, about ₹375 crore to acquire land and land development rights, and the remaining funds for general corporate purposes. After the public issue, its promoter shareholding will stand at 88.5%.
