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; with the latter segment comprising predominantly of the HNI / NII segment and to a smaller extent of the QIB segment. A total of 86,400 shares were allocated as market maker portion to Spread X Securities 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

86,400 shares (5.02%)

Other Shares Offered

8,16,800 shares (47.49%)

Retail Shares Offered

8,16,800 shares (47.49%)

Total Shares Offered

17,20,000 shares (100%)

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, 5.02% 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 Kody Technolab Ltd

The oversubscription of the IPO was dominated by the HNI / NIIs followed by the retail investors and the QIB investors in that order. The table below captures the day-wise progression of the subscription status of Kody Technolab Ltd 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 of the IPO, with the HNI / NII (non-retail) segment seeing a lot of traction on the last day of the IPO closing. 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 investor categories saw good traction and build-up of interest on the last day of the IPO. There is an allocation of 86,400 shares to Spread X Securities 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.

The IPO of Kody Technolab Ltd opened for subscription on 15th September 2023 and closed for subscription on 20th September 2023 (both days inclusive). The basis of allotment will be finalized on 25th September 2023 and the refunds will be initiated on 26th September 2023. In addition, the demat credits are expected to happen on 27th September 2023 and the stock is scheduled to list on 28th September 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.

A quick word on Kody Technolab Ltd and the SME IPO

The IT industry in India has traversed through 3 phases in the last 15 years. It first transformed from the traditional outsourcing for BFSI (banking, financial services, insurance) IT needs to a more digital environment. The digital environment comprised of SMAC (social media, mobility, analytics, and cloud). Now, Indian IT is mutating to the third stage which is the Digital Plus segment comprising of artificial intelligence, machine learning, Internet of Things, virtual reality, augmented reality etc. It is in this third phase that the company is positioned.
