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 and Day-2 of the IPO. As per the combined bid details put out by the BSE at the end of Day-3, Adani Wilmar IPO was subscribed 17.37X overall, with strong demand coming from the HNI segment followed by the QIB segment and the retail segment in that order at the close of the third day of subscription. The issue has closed for subscription on Monday, 31st January 2022.

As of close of 31st January 2022, out of the 1,225.46 lakh shares on offer in the IPO, Adani Wilmar Ltd saw bids for 21,287.81 lakh shares. This implies an overall subscription of 17.37X. The granular break-up of subscriptions was dominated by the HNI segment followed by the QIBIs and the retail investor segment in that order.

Normally, it is only on the last day of bidding, the NII bids and the QIB bids build up substantial momentum and that is what we got to see in the Adani Wilmar issue too. First couple of days response is normally not too suggestive in this case.

The QIB portion (net of anchor allocation as explained above) has a quota of 287.43 lakh shares of which it has got bids for 1,646.74 lakh shares at the close of Day-3, implying 5.73X subscription for QIBs at the close of Day-3. QIB bids typically get bunched on the last day but the solid response in the anchor placement had already indicated that there was strong institutional appetite for the IPO.

HNI / NII Portion

The HNI portion got subscribed 56.30X (getting applications for 12,137.05 lakh shares against the quota of 215.57 lakh shares). This is a very strong response at the close of Day-3 because most of the response has come from individual HNIs, followed by corporates. This segment normally sees the maximum response bunched on the last day, which was the case in the Adani Wilmar IPO too. Bulk of the funded applications and corporate applications, came in on the last day of the IPO only.
