Kody Technolab IPO worth ₹27.52 crore comprises entirely of a fresh issue with no offer for sale (OFS) component in the IPO from promoters and early shareholders. It will be a fixed price issue and the IPO price has already been fixed at ₹160 per share. The fresh issue portion of the IPO entails the issue of 17.20 lakh shares which at the fixed IPO price of ₹160 is worth ₹27.52 crore. Since there is no OFS component in the IPO, the fresh issue size of ₹27.52 crore is also the size of the overall IPO.

How to apply for the Kody Technolab IPO

The stock of Kody Technolab IPO has a face value of ₹10 and bidders can only bid in minimum lot size of 800 share each, entailing a minimum investment of ₹128,000 in the IPO at the upper end of the price band of ₹160 per share.

The company has allocated 5.02% of the issue size for the market makers. The balance shares will be equally allocated between the retail investors and the non-retail investors. Here non-retail investors predominantly include the HNI / NII investors and partially the QIB investors also. However, there is no dedicated QIB quota available in the IPO of Kody Technolab Ltd.

Like in every SME IPO, Kody Technolab IPO also has a market maker. The Market maker typically provides buy and sell quotes post listing to ensure liquidity and low basis risk in the stock. In this case, the makers will be Spread X Securities Ltd, who will act as the market maker for the SME IPO of Kody Technolab Ltd. The company has set aside 86,400 shares for the market maker.

The issue opens for subscription on 15th September 2023 and closes 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 also 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.

About the GMP pricing for Kody Technolab IPO

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 Kody Technolab 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.

How Kody Technolab IPO GMP is panned out:

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 Kody Technolab IPO for which the data is available.

Date GMP (grey market price)
27-Sep-2023 ₹25
26-Sep-2023 ₹25
25-Sep-2023 ₹33
24-Sep-2023 ₹37
23-Sep-2023 ₹35
22-Sep-2023 ₹35
21-Sep-2023 ₹35
20-Sep-2023 ₹50
19-Sep-2023 ₹50
18-Sep-2023 ₹50
17-Sep-2023 ₹50
16-Sep-2023 ₹50
15-Sep-2023 ₹70
14-Sep-2023 ₹70
13-Sep-2023 ₹30

In the above case, the GMP trend shows that the grey market premium has opened at around ₹30, but its up by ₹25 per share. Of course, we have to await for the actual subscription numbers to flow in when the issue opens for subscription on 15th September 2023 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, Kody Technolab IPO has shown good traction in the grey market.

If you consider the fixed price of the Kody Technolab IPO at ₹160, then the likely listing price is being signalled at around ₹190 per share as per the GMP indicator on 14th September 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 ₹30 on the fixed IPO price of ₹160 indicates a listing premium of a healthy 18.75% for Kody Technolab Ltd over the listing price. That pre-supposes a listing price of approximately ₹190 per share, when Kody Technolab Ltd lists on 28th September 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.
