The Rs.3,600 crore IPO of Adani Wilmar Ltd, consisting entirely of a fresh issue of shares of Rs.3,600 crore, saw stable response on Day-1 of the IPO. As per the combined bid details put out by the BSE at the end of Day-2, Adani Wilmar IPO was subscribed 1.13X overall, with strong demand coming from the retail segment followed by the HNI segment and the QIB segment in that order at the close of the second day of subscription. The issue will close for subscription on Monday, 31st January 2022.

As of close of 28th January 2022, out of the 1,225.46 lakh shares on offer in the IPO, Adani Wilmar Ltd saw bids for 1,382.58 lakh shares. This implies an overall subscription of 1.13X. The granular break-up of subscriptions was dominated by the retail investors followed by the HNI segment and the QIBs in that order.

Normally, it is only on the last day of bidding, the NII bids and the QIB bids build up substantial momentum. First couple of days response may not be too suggestive in this case, since the anchor allocation has been quite strong.
