IHS Holding Ltd. on Monday said it plans to sell 18 million shares at between $21 and $24 apiece in an initial public offering that could give the Wireless tower operator a market capitalization of nearly $8 billion.

At the $22.50 midpoint of the expected price range, IHS said it expects net proceeds of about $378.8 million, or around $436.5 million if the underwriters exercise an option to buy an additional 2.7 million shares.

IHS said current shareholders, including South Africa-based telecommunications group MTN Group Ltd. and private-equity firm Emerging Capital Partners, plan to sell a total of 4.5 million shares in the offering, bringing the size of the IPO to 22.5 million shares.

MTN would still be IHS's largest shareholder after the IPO, with a stake topping 25%, while French investment company Wendel SE, which isn't selling any shares, would hold nearly 23%, according to a filing with U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission.

In the filing, IHS said it would have about 330.8 million shares outstanding after the IPO, assuming exercise of the overallotment option, for a market capitalization of around $7.94 billion at the $24-a-share high end of the expected price range.

IHS said it has been approved to list its shares on the New York Stock Exchange under the symbol IHS.
