If you have applied for the IPO, you can check your allotment status online on the website of the IPO registrar, Skyline Financial Services Private Ltd. Here are the steps that you need to follow to check allotment status.

Thirdly, there also a way to access this page via the home page of Skyline Financial Services Private Ltd by clicking on the Public Issues link displayed prominently on the home page. It all works the same.

The first thing you do is to select the company you want to access the allotment status for. The drop down box will only show companies where the allotment status is already finalized. In this case, you can get to see the name of Arvind and Company Shipping Agencies Ltd on the list around 19th October 2023 when the allotment status is finalized. Once the company name appears on the drop down, you can click on the company name and go to next screen.

This dropdown will only show the active IPOs, so once the allotment status is finalized, you can select Arvind and Company Shipping Agencies Ltd from the dropdown box. The allotment status will be finalized on 19th October 2023, so in this case, you can access the details on the registrar website either late on 19th October 2023 or by middle of 20th October 2023. Once the company is selected from the dropdown box, you have 3 methods to check the allotment status for the IPO. All the three can be selected from the same screen by opting for the preferred radio button.

It does not matter whether it is an NSDL account or a CDSL account. All you need to do is to write down the combination of the DP ID and the Client ID in a single string. In the case of NSDL, enter the DP id and Client id in a single string without space. In case of CDSL, just enter the CDSL client number.

Remember that the two most important factors in assessing your chances of getting allotment is the overall quota allocation in the IPO and extent of oversubscription in the IPO. Normally, higher the oversubscription in the IPO, the lower are your chances of getting an allotment. Let us first look at the overall quota allocation and then at the extent of oversubscription that the IPO of Arvind and Company Shipping Agencies Ltd received.

Why the IPO quotas matter to the basis of allotment?

Your chances of allotment depend on the number of shares allotted to the quota. Typically, it is the retail and HNI quota that is of relevance here. The table below captures the individual quotas allocate for retail investors and for HNI / NII investors.

Investor Category Shares Offered
Anchor Investor Shares Offered Nil Shares 
Market Maker Shares Offered 1,68,000 (5.13%)
Other Shares Offered 15,54,000 (47.44%)
Retail Shares Offered 15,54,000 (47.44%)
Total Shares Offered 32,76,000 (100.00%)

It is a relatively small sized issue with a limited quota of shares available for retail and for the HNI / NII investors. Hence, it would be dependent on how much the issue gets subscribed. But, prima facie, the quota allocated is quite low, so the investors will start of on the chance of allocation with a disadvantage.

What do the subscriptions mean for basis of allotment?

The response to the IPO of Arvind and Company Shipping Agencies Ltd was very strong as the overall issue was subscribed 385.03X at the close of bidding on 16th October 2023. That is impressively higher than the median subscription that the NSE SME IPOs have been getting in general. Out of the overall bids received, the retail segment saw 21.27 times subscription and the non-retail HNI / NII portion saw 95.16 times subscription. The QIB portion was subscribed 42.74 times. The table below captures the overall allocation of shares with the oversubscription details as of the close of the IPO on 16th October 2023.

bid for
Total Amount 
(₹ in crore)
Market Maker 1 1,68,000 1,68,000 0.76
HNI / NIIs 436.05 15,54,000 67,76,19,000 3,049.29
Retail Investors 321.97 15,54,000 50,03,40,000 2,251.53
Total 385.03 31,08,000 1,19,66,79,000 5,385.06
      Total Applications: 166,780 (321.97 times)

The subscription to the IPO is extremely robust and that sharply reduces the chances of your getting the allotment in the IPO. However, you would have for the basis of allotment to be finalized before checking the status.
