Retail Investors










The issue was open for retail investors, QIBs and for the HNI / NIIs. There was a broad quota designed for each of the segments viz. the retail and the non-retail segments, with the latter predominantly comprising of HNIs / NIIs and to a lesser extent the corporates and QIBs too. A total of 1,44,000 shares were allocated as market maker portion to Nikunj Stock Brokers Ltd, which will act as a market maker to provide bid-ask liquidity on the counter post listing. Market maker action not only improves liquidity in the counter but also reduces the basis risk. The table below captures the allocation reservation done for each of the categories out of the total number of shares offered in the IPO.

Market Maker Shares Offered

1,44,000 shares (5.05%)

Other Shares Offered

13,53,000 shares (47.47%)

Retail Shares Offered

13,53,000 shares (47.47%)

Total Shares Offered

28,50,000 shares (100.00%)

As can be seen, from the above table, the company has not made any allocation for anchor investors. Hence there was no anchor allocation ahead of the IPO opening date. Out of the total issue available, 5.05% of the shares were set aside for the market maker inventory to provide liquidity and two-way quotes post listing. The balance number of shares (called the net offer to public) was equally distributed between the retail investors and the non-retail investors. The non-retail predominantly includes the HNI / NII investors and to a lesser extent the corporates and QIBs too. The anchor portion is normally adjusted to the overall QIB quota, in the event of anchor allocation.

How subscription built up for the IPO of Holmarc Opto-Mechatronics Ltd

The table below captures the day-wise progression of the subscription status of Holmarc Opto-Mechatronics Ltd IPO, leading up to the close of the IPO.





Day 1 (Sep 15, 2023)




Day 2 (Sep 18, 2023)




Day 3 (Sep 20, 2023)




It is clear from the above table that while the retail portion got fully subscribed on the first day of the IPO itself, the HNI / NII portion got fully subscribed only on the second day. However, the overall IPO was fully subscribed on the first day itself although most of the traction was seen on the last day. Both the categories of investors viz., HNIs / NIIs and retail categories saw good traction and build up of interest on the last day of the IPO. There is an allocation of 1,44,000 shares to Nikunj Stock Brokers Ltd for market making. The market maker offers two way quotes on the stock post listing using the inventory of shares and ensures that investors do not get overly worried about liquidity and basis risk in the early stages.
