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 also very strong; next to the HNI / NII portion and the QIB 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 IPO of Exicom Tele-Systems Ltd got fully subscribed on the first day of the IPO itself. As per the combined bid details put out by the BSE at the close of Day-3, Exicom Tele-Systems IPO was subscribed 129.54X overall, with best demand coming from the HNI / NII segment, followed by the QIB segment and the Retail segment in that order.

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 also a lot more aggressive than usual. 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.

Subscription status of QIB Portion

On 26th February 2024, Exicom Tele-Systems Ltd completed the bidding for its anchor allocation. There was a robust response as the anchor investors participated through the process of book building. A total of 1,25,38,800 shares were allotted to the anchor investors. The allocation was done at the upper IPO price band of ₹142 per share (including premium of ₹132 per share) which resulted in an overall allocation of ₹178.05 crore. The anchors absorbed 40.76% of the total issue size of ₹436.83 crore. The final IPO figure has been marginally revised from the original IPO size due to tweaking of the category wise allocations. It may be noted that half the anchor portion is locked for 1 month from the date of allotment i.e. up to March 31st, 2024. The other 50% is locked for 3 months from the date of allotment i.e., up to May 30th 2024.

Subscription status of HNI / NII Portion

The HNI portion got subscribed 153.22X (getting applications for 7,219.60 lakh shares against the quota of 47.12 lakh shares). That is a relatively strong response at the close of Day-3 largely because this segment normally sees the maximum response bunched on the last day. Bulk of the funded applications and corporate applications, come in on the last day of the IPO, and that was visible as the overall HNI / NII portion added to its heft on the last day of the IPO. Apart from the QIB portion, even HNIs saw good traction on the last day.

Now the NII/HNI portion is reported in two parts viz. bids below ₹10 lakhs (S-HNI) and bids above ₹10 lakhs (B-HNI).
