by 5paisa Research Team Last Updated: 2021-11-30T18:35:42+05:30

The Rs.7,249 crore IPO of Star Health & Allied Insurance, consisting of a fresh issue of Rs.2,000 crore and an offer for sale (OFS) of Rs.5,249 crore, saw tepid response on Day-1 of the IPO.

As per the combined bid details put out by the BSE at the close of Day-1, Star Health & Allied Insurance IPO was subscribed 0.12X overall, with decent demand coming from the retail segment but virtually no action seen in the HNI counters or the QIB counters.

The issue closes for subscription on 02nd December.

As of close of 30th November, out of the 449.09 lakh shares on offer in the IPO, Star Health saw bids for 53.19 lakh shares. This implies an overall subscription of 0.12X.

The granular break-up of subscriptions was dominated by the retail investors while the HNIs and QIB response were almost absent.

However, the QIB bids and NII bids are expected to gather momentum on the last day, as is the general trend in the IPO market.

QIB Portion

Let us first talk about the pre-IPO anchor placement. On 29th November, Star Health & Allied Insurance did an anchor placement of 3,57,45,901 shares at the upper end of the price band of Rs.900 to 62 anchor investors raising Rs.3,217.13 crore.

The list of QIB investors included a number of marquee global names like Government of Singapore, Monetary Authority of Singapore, Ballie Gifford, BNP Paribas, Goldman Sachs, Janchor Partners, Universities Superannuation Fund and Abu Dhabi Investment Authority (ADIA).

Domestic anchor investors included HDFC Life, Max Life, Bharat AXA Life, IIFL Opportunities Fund, Mirae MF and Edelweiss Mutual Fund; among others.

The QIB portion (net of anchor allocation as explained above) has a quota of 238.31 lakh shares of which it has got bids for 0.42 lakh shares on Day-1, implying negligible subscription for QIBs at the close of Day-1.

QIB bids typically get bunched on the last day but the heavy demand for the anchor placement forebodes well for the Star Health IPO subscription overall.

HNI / NII Portion

The HNI portion got subscribed 0.01X (getting applications for 1.39 lakh shares against the quota of 119.15 lakh shares). This is a relatively tepid response on Day-1 but of course this segment normally sees the maximum response bunched on the last day.

Bulk of the funded applications and corporate applications, come in on the last day of the IPO.

Retail Individuals

The retail portion was subscribed a more decent 0.64X at the end of Day-1, showing reasonable retail appetite. It must be noted that retail allocation is only 10% in this IPO.

For retail investors; out of the 79.44 lakh shares on offer, valid bids were received for 51.08 lakh shares, which included bids for 40.65 lakh shares at the cut-off price.

The IPO is priced in the band of (Rs.443-Rs.453) and will close for subscription on 03rd December 2021.
