Premium listing for Committed Cargo Care IPO, then hits upper circuit

Committed Cargo Care Ltd had a modestly strong listing on 18th October 2023, listing at a premium of 6.49%, and subsequently hitting the 5% upper circuit on the listing price. Of course, the stock closed comfortably above the IPO issue price and the IPO listing price for the day. Overall, there was a sharp fall in the markets as the Nifty closed 140 points in the red while the Sensex closed 551 points lower. The weakness in the market was largely on account of the sharp sell-off in the Nifty amidst aggressive profit booking. The worsening war situation in Israel also led to a sharp sell-off in the marks as traders and investors preferred to stay light in these tumultuous times amidst rising geopolitical risks.

With subscription of 78.73X for the retail portion, and 94.20X for the QIB portion; the overall subscription was extremely healthy at 87.78X. The IPO was a fixed price issue with the IPO price already fixed at ₹77 per share. The stock listed at a modestly positive premium of 6.49%, even on a day when the market sentiments were extremely weak overall. However, subsequently, the stock not only held the gains but also hit the upper circuit of 5%, despite the fall in the market overall. This was reflective of strength in the broader market sentiments. The subscription normally impacts the price discovery in book building issues and the listing price. While this was a fixed price issue, the strong subscription had a positive impact on the ability of the stock to hold gains in a market that was falling sharply.

Like the upper circuit price, even the lower circuit price on listing day is calculated on the listing price and not on the IPO price.
