How subscriptions evolved in the IPO period

While the QIB portion and the HNI / NII portion picked up traction on the last day, the overall journey was quite rapid for the retail investors. In fact, the QIB portion got fully subscribed only on the last day of the IPO while the retail portion and the HNI portion got comfortably fully subscribed on the first day of the IPO itself. The overall IPO also saw the subscription book filling up on the first day of the IPO itself. The IPO was kept open for a total period of 3 consecutive trading days. While the retail portion did start off strong, the eventual traction slowed in the subsequent days, which is the general norm for retail; next to the QIB and the HNI / NII portion respectively. Here is the day-wise progress in IPO subscription of the total available quota. The available over subscription in the table below represents the oversubscription; net of the anchor allocation of shares, done one working day prior to the opening of the IPO.

Rapid update on the overall IPO response

The IPO saw fairly steady response on the Day-1 and Day-2, with most of the action visible only on Day-3 of the IPO, as is normally the case. However, the IPO did close with relatively healthy subscription numbers at the close of Day-3. In fact, the IPO of Platinum Industries Ltd got fully subscribed on the first day of the IPO itself. As per the combined bid details put out by the BSE at the close of Day-3, Platinum Industries Ltd IPO was subscribed 98.99X overall, with best demand coming from the QIB segment, followed by the HNI / NII segment and the Retail segment in that order.

In fact, the institutional QIB segment and the HNI / NII segments saw some very good traction on the last day. The HNI portion did do well and a lot of the surge of funding applications and corporate applications did come in on the last day of the IPO. Retail portion was relatively less aggressive on the last day, although it was fully subscribed on Day-1 of the IPO itself, but subsequent traction was a tad more cautious. Firstly, let us look at the details of overall allocation of shares to various categories of investors. It may be noted that in the final allocation of shares, minor variations are normal as part of intra-segment adjustments. These, however, do not impact the total number of shares materially.

The granular break-up of subscriptions was in favour of the QIB investors followed by the HNI / NII investors and the Retail investors in that order.

Subscription status of QIB Portion

On 26th February 2024, Platinum Industries Ltd completed the bidding for its anchor allocation. There was a robust response as the anchor investors participated through the process of book building. A total of 41,28,237 shares were allotted to the anchor investors. The allocation was done at the upper IPO price band of ₹171 per share (including premium of ₹161 per share) which resulted in an overall allocation of ₹70.59 crore. The anchors absorbed 30% of the total issue size of ₹235.32 crore.  It may be noted that half the anchor portion is locked for 1 month from the date of allotment i.e. up to March 31st, 2024.

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 Platinum Industries Ltd IPO subscription overall, the actual demand did turn to be quite robust for the IPO.

Subscription status of HNI / NII Portion

The HNI portion got subscribed 141.79X (getting applications for 2,926.88 lakh shares against the quota of 20.64 lakh shares). That is a relatively strong 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 as the overall HNI / NII portion added to its heft on the last day of the IPO. Apart from the QIB portion, even HNIs 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 138.46X while the below ₹10 lakh bid category (S-HNIs) got subscribed 148.46X. This is just in the form of additional information and is already part of the overall HNI bids explained in the previous para.
