The anchor issue of Syrma SGS Technology Ltd saw a robust response on 11th August 2022 and the announcement was made late on Thursday. The IPO opens on 12th August 2022 in the price band of Rs.209 to Rs.220 and shall close for subscription on 18th August 2022 due to a slew of holidays in between. Let us focus on the anchor allotment portion ahead of the Syrma SGS Technology Ltd 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 to the IPO price.


An anchor investor in an IPO is normally a qualified institutional buyer (QIB) like a foreign portfolio investor or mutual fund or insurance company or a sovereign fund which invests before the IPO is made available to the public as per SEBI regulations. Anchor portion is part of the public issue, so the IPO portion to the public (QIB portion) is reduced to that extent. As initial investors, these anchors make the IPO process more attractive for investors, and instil confidence in them. Anchor investors also largely aid in price discovery of the IPO.

Syrma SGS Technology Ltd has been a mix, getting good response from FPIs and domestic mutual funds. Apart from the above list, there were another 6 funds which also invested in the anchor portion of the Syrma SGS Technology IPO. This is likely to be positive for the actual IPO response when the issue opens on Friday, the 12th of August.
