How subscriptions evolved in the IPO period

In fact, the QIB portion got just about fully subscribed on the first day of the IPO while the retail portion and the HNI portion got comfortably fully subscribed on the first day of the IPO itself. The overall IPO also saw the subscription book filling up on the first day of the IPO itself. The IPO was kept open for a total period of 3 consecutive trading days. While the retail portion did start off strong, the eventual traction was largely moderate; next to the QIB and the HNI / NII portion respectively.

Rapid update on the overall IPO response

The IPO saw fairly steady response on the Day-1 and Day-2, with most of the action visible only on Day-3 of the IPO, as is normally the case. However, the IPO did close with relatively healthy subscription numbers at the close of Day-3.

In fact, the institutional QIB segment and the HNI / NII segments saw some very good traction on the last day. The HNI portion did do well and a lot of the surge of funding applications and corporate applications did come in on the last day of the IPO. Retail portion was relatively less aggressive, although it was fully subscribed on Day-1 of the IPO itself, but subsequent traction was a tad more cautious. Firstly, let us look at the details of overall allocation of shares to various categories of investors. It may be noted that in the final allocation of shares, minor variations are normal as part of intra-segment adjustments. These, however, do not impact the total number of shares materially.
