The ₹270.20 crore Manoj Vaibhav Gems ‘N’ Jewellers IPO, consisted of a combination of fresh issue and offer for sale. The fresh issue was to the tune of ₹210 crore while the offer for sale (OFS) was worth ₹60.20 crore. The IPO pricing was done in the band of ₹204 to ₹215 per share with the final price to be discovered through the process of book building. While the QIB portion picked up traction on the last day, the overall journey was quite slow. In fact, the HNI / NII portion got the best subscription, followed by the retail portion and the QIB portion in that order. In fact, all the 3 segments were undersubscribed at the end of the second day and only got fully subscribed on the last day of the IPO. This also applies to the overall IPO, obviously. The table below captures the day wise progression.

As can be seen from the above table, the overall IPO got 2.25 times subscribed at the close of the third and final day of the IPO on 26th September 2023.

Rapid update on the overall IPO response

In fact, the institutional segment saw limited traction on the last day. The HNI portion did do well and a some of the surge of funding applications and corporate applications did come in on the last day of the IPO. Retail portion was relatively timid and got fully subscribed only on the last day of the IPO. Firstly, let us look at the details of overall allocation.

QIB bids typically get bunched on the last day and while the heavy demand for the anchor placement had given an indication of the institutional appetite for the Manoj Vaibhav Gems ‘N’ Jewellers Ltd IPO subscription overall, the actual demand did not turn to be robust for the IPO.

Subscription status of HNI / NII Portion

The HNI portion got subscribed 5.18X (getting applications for 101.72 lakh shares against the quota of 19.64 lakh shares). That is a relatively moderate response at the close of Day-3 largely because this segment normally sees the maximum response bunched on the last day. Bulk of the funded applications and corporate applications, come in on the last day of the IPO, and that was visible to an extent as the overall HNI / NII portion added to its heft on the last day of the IPO. Only the HNI / NII portion saw good traction on the last day.

Now the NII/HNI portion is reported in two parts viz. bids below ₹10 lakhs (S-HNI) and bids above ₹10 lakhs (B-HNI). The bids above the ₹10 lakh category (B-HNIs) typically represents most of the major funding customers. If you break up the HNI portion, the above ₹10 lakh bid category got subscribed 6.09X while the below ₹10 lakh bid category (S-HNIs) got subscribed 3.35X. This is just for information and is already part of the overall HNI bids explained in the previous para.

Subscription status of Retail Individuals

The retail portion was subscribed just 1.66X at the close of Day-3, showing relatively tepid appetite. It must be noted that retail allocation is 35% in this IPO.
