Understanding the unique anchor methodology for Bharat Highways INVIT IPO

The difference between the gross and net number of shares in the case of INVIT, not only includes the anchor portion, but also the mandatory sponsor allotment portion. For example, under the extant SEBI rules on INVIT, all the INVITs going for an IPO are required to allocate, at least, 15% of the post diluted equity to the sponsors. In this case, the sponsor is Aadarshila Infratech Private Ltd. The company has already allocated on February 26, 2024, a total of 6,64,50,000 shares (664.50 lakh shares) to the sponsor of the INVIT, Aadarshila Infratech Private Ltd. That leaves residual shares of just 18,35,50,000 shares (1,835.50 lakh shares). Out of these shares, 75% is allocated to the QIBs and 25% to the HNI / NII investors. The anchor investors that we will talk about now, has been carved out of this QIB portion of the net issue of 1,835.50 lakh shares. However, these are subject to change and in this case also, some last minute tweaking volumes have been done, which are captured in the table below.

Let us now turn to the anchor issue of the IPO of The anchor issue of Bharat Highways Infrastructure Investment Trust INVIT on February 27th, 2024. Bharat Highways Infrastructure Investment Trust INVIT saw a strong response on 27th February 2024 with 45% of the net IPO size (net of sponsor allocation) getting absorbed by the anchors. Out of the residual shares (post sponsor allotment) of 18,35,50,000 shares (1,835.50 lakh shares) on offer, the anchors picked up 8,25,97,350 shares (825.97 lakh shares approximately) accounting for 45% of the net IPO size.

The anchor allocation is slightly more convoluted in an INVIT. Earlier, we had said that the anchor allocation of 8,25,97,350 shares was 45% of the net IPO size (net of sponsor allocation of units). However, as a share of the overall IPO size of 2,520.60 crore shares (later modified), the anchor portion is 32.77%, which is captured in the above table. Hence the discrepancy. These 8,25,97,350 shares issued to the anchor investors on 27th February 2024, were actually reduced from the original QIB quota; and only the residual amount would be available to QIBs in the IPO. That change has been reflected in the table above, with the QIB IPO portion reduced to the extent of the anchor allocation. As a result, the QIB quota has reduced from 55.06% of the overall IPO before the anchor allocation to 22.29% after the anchor allocation. The original size of the Bharat Highways INVIT IPO was 25 crore shares, but the final tally took it up to 25.21 crore shares. The difference is quite marginal.
