The QIB portion (net of anchor allocation as explained above) had a quota of 11.06 lakh shares of which it has got bids for 110.01 lakh shares at the close of Day-3, implying a subscription ratio of 9.94X for QIBs at the close of Day-3. 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 Pyramid Technoplast Ltd IPO subscription overall, the actual demand did turn to be less robust than expected for the QIB portion of the IPO.

Subscription status of HNI / NII Portion

The HNI portion got subscribed 32.24X (getting applications for 594.41 lakh shares against the available quota of 18.44 lakh shares). That is a very 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. While the demand for the QIB portion was relatively subdued, 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 33.81X while the below ₹10 lakh bid category (S-HNIs) got subscribed 29.09X. 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 14.72X at the close of Day-3, showing steady to strong retail appetite. It must be noted that retail allocation is 35% in this IPO. For retail investors; out of the 46.10 lakh shares on offer, valid bids were received for 678.44 lakh shares, which included bids for 559.95 lakh shares at the cut-off price.
