Robust volumes for Piotex Industries Ltd on listing day

Let us now turn to the volumes of the stock on the BSE. On Day-1 of listing, the Piotex Industries Ltd stock traded a total of 10.24 lakh shares on BSE SME segment amounting to trading value (turnover) of ₹1,136 lakhs on the first day. The order book during the day showed a lot of buying with the buy orders consistently exceeding the sell orders at any point of time. That also led the stock to close with pending buy orders (unmet) at the end of the trading session. It must be noted here that Piotex Industries Ltd is in the trade to trade (T2T) segment so only delivery trades are possible on the stock. Hence the entire volume for the day purely represents the delivery volumes, barring some minor shifts for error trades adjustment.

At the close of Day-1 of listing, Piotex Industries Ltd had a market capitalization of ₹58.33 crore with free-float market cap of ₹17.50 crore. As stated earlier, since the trading is on the T2T segment (MT segment of BSE), the entire volume of 10.24 lakh shares during the day is accounted by delivery trades only, barring some error trade exceptions in the market. The stock trades on the BSE SME segment under the trading code (544178) and will be available in the demat account under ISIN code (INE0R4W01015). The stock has a face value of ₹10 per share.

IPO size to Market cap contribution ratio

One way to assess the significance of the IPO on the market cap of the segment is the ratio of market cap overall to the IPO size. Piotex Industries Ltd had a market cap of ₹58.33 crore and the issue size was ₹14.47 crore. Therefore, the Market cap contribution ratio of the IPO works out to 4.03 times; which is lower than the median. Remember, this is not the ratio of the market cap to original book value, but the ratio of the market cap created to the size of the IPO. That shows the significance of the IPO to the overall market cap accretion of the stock exchange.
