Strong listing for Oriana Power IPO, and a stronger close

Oriana Power IPO had a strong listing on 11th August 2023, listing at a sharp premium of 155.93%, and gained further to close at the 5% upper circuit over the listing price. For the day, the stock closed comfortably above the IPO price as well as the listing price. Ironically, this extremely solid performance came on a day when the markets came under pressure as the Nifty fell by 115 points on the day and the Sensex fell by 366 points for the day on 11th August 2023. It was more about weekend profit booking as traders chose to stay light ahead of the weekend and after a volatile week when the Nifty continued to face resistance at the 19,600 levels and retreated quite sharply from these levels. However, despite such a weak day of trading, the listing of the stock of Oriana Power Ltd was at a smart premium of 155.93% and on top of that, the stock also gained further strength to close the day at the 5% upper circuit limit for the day. Here the upper circuit is calculated on the listing price and not on the IPO price.

The stock of Oriana Power IPO did show a lot of strength on opening and tried to hold on to higher levels, which eventually it succeeded in doing. Despite the pressure of the market correction overall, the stock almost appeared to be unperturbed. The stock closed not only well above the IPO issue price but edged up further to reach the maximum possible limit of the upper 5% circuit for the day. Being an NSE SME IPO, it is only traded on the SME segment of NSE. Oriana Power IPO opened 155.93% higher and the opening price turned out to be very close to the low price for the day. With subscription of 204.04X for the retail portion and subscription of 251.74X for the HNI / NII portion, and 72.16X for the QIB portion; the overall subscription was extremely healthy at 176.58X. The subscription numbers were so strong that it allowed the stock to list at a huge premium even on a day when the market sentiments were very weak. However, what is more appreciable is the fact that the stock not just managed to sustain these levels but even garnered the strength to pull itself up to the upper circuit of the day at 5% limit.
