Kaynes Technology IPO Review | Kaynes Technology India IPO - APPLY or NOT?: 


Before we go into the details of the actual anchor allotment, a quick word on the process of anchor placement. The anchor placement ahead of an IPO/FPO is different from a pre-IPO placement in that the anchor allocation has a lock-in period of just one month, although under the new rules, part of the anchor portion will be locked in for 3 months. It is just to give confidence to investors that the issue is backed by large established institutions. 


However, the anchor investors cannot be allotted shares at a discount to the IPO price. This is explicitly stated in the SEBI revised regulations as under, “As per the Securities and Exchange Board of India (Issue of Capital and Disclosure Requirement) Regulations, 2018, as amended, in case the Offer Price discovered through book building process is higher than the Anchor Investor Allocation Price, then the Anchor investors will be required to pay the difference by the pay-in as specified in the revised CAN.


An anchor investor in an IPO is normally a qualified institutional buyer (QIB) like a foreign portfolio investor or mutual fund or insurance company or a sovereign fund which invests before the IPO is made available to the public as per SEBI regulations. Anchor portion is part of the public issue, so the IPO portion to the public (QIB portion) is reduced to that extent. As initial investors, these anchors make the IPO process more attractive for investors, and instil confidence in them. Anchor investors also largely aid in price discovery of the IPO

The general norm is that, in anchor placements, smaller issues find it hard to get FPIs interested while larger issues do not interest mutual funds. Kaynes Technology India Ltd has been a mix, getting good response from FPIs and also a strong response from the domestic mutual funds. The number and spread of the Foreign Portfolio Investors has been fairly healthy in this case. With strong SIP flows, most equity funds are flush with cash at this point of time and that has helped the MF appetite for anchor allocation in Kaynes Technology IPO.


Out of the total 43,76,421 shares allotted by way of anchor placement, Kaynes Technology India Ltd allotted a total of 17,66,065 shares to 14 domestic mutual fund schemes across 9 AMCs. The mutual fund allocation represents 40.35% of the overall anchor allocation.
