With sedate signals coming from the GMP in the unofficial market, the anchor response has been 30% of the total issue size. The QIB portion in the IPO will be reduced to the extent of the anchor placement done above. Only the balance amount will be available for QIB allocation as part of the regular IPO.

The general norm is that, in anchor placements, smaller issues find it hard to get FPIs interested while larger issues do not interest mutual funds. CMS got predominant response from domestic funds plus some interest from global funds too.

Out of the total 152.78 lakh shares allotted to anchor investors, CMS Info Systems allotted a total of 61.11 lakh shares (40%) to domestic mutual funds.
