The anchor issue of Rainbow Children’s Medicare Ltd saw a robust response on 26th April 2022 and the announcement was made late on Tuesday.

The IPO opens on 27th April 2022 in the price band of Rs.516 to Rs.542 and shall remain open for 3 working days and close on 29th April 2022. Let us focus on the anchor allotment portion ahead of the IPO.

Before we go into the details of the actual anchor allotment, a quick word on the process of anchor placement. The anchor placement ahead of an IPO/FPO is different from a pre-IPO placement in that the anchor allocation has a lock-in period of just one month, although under the new rules, part of the anchor portion will be locked in for 3 months.

It is just to give confidence to investors that the issue is backed by large established institutions. However, the anchor investors cannot be allotted shares at a discount.
