With subscription of 196.35X for the retail portion, 236.76X for the HNI / NII portion, and 69.95X for the QIB portion; the overall subscription was healthy at 168.92X. The IPO was a book built issue in the price band of ₹71 to ₹75 per share and the IPO price was discovered at ₹75 per share.

As part of the fresh issue portion of the IPO, Hi-Green Carbon Ltd had issued a total of 59,90,000 shares (59.90 lakh shares), which at the upper band IPO price of ₹75 per share aggregated to fresh fund raising of ₹44.93 crore.

On 28th September 2023, the stock of Hi-Green Carbon Ltd listed on the NSE at a price of ₹77, a premium of 2.67% over the IPO issue price of ₹75. However, the stock got a further boost post listing and it closed the day at a price of ₹80.85 which is 7.80% above the IPO issue price of ͭ₹75 per share and a full 5% above the listing price of the stock at ₹77 per share on the first day of listing. In a nutshell, the stock of Hi-Green Carbon Ltd had closed the day exactly at the upper circuit price for the stock of 5% with only buyers and no sellers in the counter. 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 for the SME stocks. The opening price actually turned out to be very close to the low price of the day, while the closing price was exactly at the high price of the day, being the 5% upper circuit limit for the day on 28th September 2023.

On Day-1 of listing i.e., on 28th September 2023, Hi-Green Carbon IPO touched a high of ₹80.85 on the NSE and a low of ₹75.45 per share. The high price of the day was exactly the closing price of the stock while the stock low price of the day was just a tad below the opening price of the day.

The stock closed at the 5% upper circuit with 3,44,000 buy quantity and no sellers in the counter. For the SME IPOs, it may be recollected, that 5% is the upper limit and also the lower circuit on the listing price on the day of listing.
