It is a Book Built issue with the price band and the final price will be discovered through book building process. Holani Consultants Private Ltd will act as market maker for the SME IPO of Infollion Research Services Ltd. The company has set aside 132,800 shares for the market maker.

The issue opens for subscription on 29th May 2023 and closes for subscription on 31st May 2023 (both days inclusive). The basis of allotment will be finalized on 05th June 2023 and the refunds will be initiated on 06th June 2023. In addition, the demat credits are expected to happen on 07th June 2023 and the stock is scheduled to list on 08th June 2023 on the NSE SME segment. This is the segment, in contrast to the mainboard, where IPOs of small and medium enterprises (SMEs) are incubated. The grey market price (GMP) trading normally starts about 4-5 days prior to IPO opening and continues till the listing date. In the case of Infollion Research Services Ltd, we already have GMP data for the last 2 days, which should give a reasonable picture of the likely listing.

There are 2 factors that impact the GMP. Firstly, the market conditions have a deep impact on the GMP, especially the liquidity conditions in the market. Secondly, the extent of subscription for the IPO has a deep impact on the GMP as it is indicative of investor interest in the stock. GMP can also technically be in negative, which means the stock would list at a discount to the issue price.

There is one small point to remember here. The GMP is not an official price point, just a popular informal price point. However, in most cases, it has been observed to be a good informal gauge of demand and supply for the IPO. Hence it does give a broad idea of how the listing is likely to be and how the post-listing performance of the stock would be.

GMP tends to be a good mirror of the real stock story. More than the actual price, it is the GMP trend over time that gives insights about which direction the wind is blowing. Here is a quick GMP summary for Infollion Research Services IPO for which the data is available.

Date GMP
7-June-2023 ₹100
6-June-2023 ₹95
5-June-2023 ₹76
4-June-2023 ₹74
3-June-2023 ₹74
2-June-2023 ₹75
1-June-2023 ₹72
31-May-2023 ₹75
30-May-2023 ₹60
29-May-2023 ₹60
28-May-2023 ₹58
27-May-2023 ₹58
26-May-2023 ₹42
25-May-2023 ₹46
24-May-2023 ₹40
23-May-2023 ₹30
22-May-2023 ₹25

In the above case, the GMP trend shows that the grey market premium has opened at around Rs25, but has since tapered slightly to Rs.76 on the second day on which GMP data is available. Of course, we have to await for the actual subscription numbers to flow in when the issue opens for subscription and also watch the progress, as that would have a very significant impact on the GMP. In the past, stocks which got oversubscribed in the IPO also saw a very robust positive shift in the grey market pricing. For a start, Infollion Research Services Ltd has shown good traction in the grey market.

If you consider the upper end of band price of the IPO of Infollion Research Services Ltd at Rs82, then the likely listing price is being signalled at around Rs106 per share as per the GMP indicator on 23rd May 2023. This is dynamic and keeps changing. One data point to track will be the subscription update on the stock as that would chart the GMP course.

The GMP of Rs24 on the upper end of the book built IPO price of Rs82 indicates a listing premium of a healthy 29.27% for Infollion Research Services Ltd over the listing price. That pre-supposes a listing price of approximately Rs106 per share, when Infollion Research Services Ltd lists on 08th June 2023. Of course, these are approximations, so you must keep a margin of safety. One needs to observe the trend of GMP closely as that gives the best hints on listing status. Look at the time series trend than on numbers.
