Marinetrans India IPO lists 15.38% higher and hits upper circuit
Premium listing for Marinetrans India IPO, then upper circuit
Marinetrans India IPO had a relatively strong listing on 08th December 2023, listing at a premium of 15.38%. After a relatively strong opening, the stock closed the day at the 5% upper circuit over the listing price. For the day, the stock closed comfortably above the IPO issue price and the IPO listing price at the close of trading on 08th December 2023. What also favoured the performance of the stock was the market support with the Nifty and the Sensex gaining smartly during the day.
On 08th December 2023, the Nifty closed 68 points higher while the Sensex closed 304 points higher. In the last few days, the Nifty has been volatile but has managed to traverse the 20,000 and the 20,500 mark with ease and is now almost at the threshold of crossing the 21,000 levels. This is psychological level where the Nifty is facing some pressure, but that is par for the course after a rally that has lasted more than 1,300 points on the Nifty. A mix of domestic and global favourable cues have led to a sharp rerating of the Nifty and the Sensex with the RBI policy adding to the momentum.
Subscription and price performance of Marinetrans India IPO on listing day
Let us now turn to the subscription story of Marinetrans India IPO on the listing day. With relatively robust subscription of 47.24X for the retail portion, and 18.05X for the HNI / NII portion; the overall subscription was extremely healthy at 33.00X. The IPO was a fixed price IPO issue with the IPO price already being fixed at ₹26 per share. Thanks to the robust response to the IPO, the stock got a favourable listing on Friday, the 08th December 2023. The stock listed at a fairly robust premium of 15.38%.
However, subsequently, despite the stock seeing some volatility in the early parts of the day, it went on to close at the upper circuit of 5% over the listing price. Interestingly, the stock also touched the lower circuit during the day at ₹28.50 per share and also was locked in at that price for some time before the stock bounced back sharply to eventually close at the upper circuit for the day. This was reflective of strength in the stock amidst the improving market sentiments.
The subscription normally impacts the price discovery in book building issues and the listing price. While there was no price discovery required in this IPO, the strong subscription had a positive impact on the ability of the stock in two ways. Firstly, it led to the stock getting listed at a premium of 15.38% at ₹30.00 per share. Secondly, and more importantly, the stock managed to bounce back from the lower circuit of the day to eventually close the day strong and at the upper circuit of the day, only due to the robust subscription levels and the overall buoyancy in the markets.

Circuit filters for SME Emerge stocks
Being an SME IPO on the NSE, the stock of Marinetrans India Ltd was subjected to 5% circuit filter on listing day and was also in the ST (trade to trade) segment. That means, only delivery trades are permitted on the stock. Like the upper circuit price, even the lower circuit price on listing day is calculated on the listing price and not on the IPO price.
