About the Baba Food Processing India IPO GMP

The grey market price (GMP) trading normally starts about 4-5 days prior to IPO opening and continues till the listing date. In the case of Baba Food Processing India Ltd, we already have GMP data for the last 2 days, which should give a reasonable picture of the likely listing.

There are 2 factors that impact the GMP. Firstly, the market conditions have a deep impact on the GMP, especially the liquidity conditions in the market. Secondly, the extent of subscription for the IPO has a deep impact on the GMP as it is indicative of investor interest in the stock. GMP can also technically be in negative, which means the stock would list at a discount to the issue price.

There is one small point to remember here. The GMP is not an official price point, just a popular informal price point. However, in most cases, it has been observed to be a good informal gauge of demand and supply for the IPO. Hence it does give a broad idea of how the listing is likely to be and how the post-listing performance of the stock would be.

How has the GMP panned out in last few days?

GMP tends to be a good mirror of the real stock story. More than the actual price, it is the GMP trend over time that gives insights about which direction the wind is blowing. Here is a quick GMP summary for Baba Food Processing India IPO for which the data is available.


Grey Market Price (GMP)



































In the above case, the GMP trend shows that the grey market premium has opened at around ₹24, and has since remained static at ₹10 for which the GMP data is available. Of course, we have to await for the actual subscription numbers to flow in after the issue opens for subscription on 03rd November 2023 and also watch the progress, as that would have a very significant impact on the GMP. In the past, stocks which got oversubscribed in the IPO also saw a very robust positive shift in the grey market pricing. For a start, Baba Food Processing India Ltd has shown good traction in the grey market.

If you consider the upper band price of the IPO of Baba Food Processing India Ltd at ₹76 per share, then the likely listing price is being signalled at around ₹100 per share as per the GMP indicator on 31st October 2023. This is dynamic and keeps changing. One data point to track will be the subscription update on the stock as that would chart the GMP course.

The GMP of ₹24 on the upper band IPO price of ₹76 per share indicates a listing premium of a healthy 31.58% for Baba Food Processing India Ltd over the IPO issue price. That pre-supposes a listing price of approximately ₹100 per share, when Baba Food Processing India Ltd lists on 16th November 2023. Of course, these are purely approximations, so you must keep a margin of safety. One needs to observe the trend of GMP closely as that gives the best hints on listing status. Look at the time series trend than the absolute numbers.
