About the Ratnaveer Precision Engineering IPO

The anchor issue of Ratnaveer Precision IPO saw a relatively strong response on 01st September 2023 with 30% of the IPO size getting absorbed by the anchors. Out of the 1,68,40,000 shares (168.40 lakh shares) on offer, the anchors picked up 50,52,000 shares (50.52 lakh shares) accounting for 30% of the total IPO size. The anchor placement reporting was made to the BSE late on Friday, September 01st, 2023; one working day ahead of the IPO opening. The IPO of Ratnaveer Precision Engineering Works Ltd opens on 04th September 2023 in the price band of ₹93 to ₹98 per share and will close for subscription on 06th September 2023 (both days inclusive).

The entire anchor allocation was made at the upper price band of ₹98. This includes the face value of ₹10 per share plus a premium of ₹88 per share, taking the anchor allocation price to ₹98 per share. Let us focus on the anchor allotment portion ahead of the Ratnaveer Precision Engineering Works Ltd IPO, which saw the anchor bidding opening and also closing on 01st September 2023. Before that, here is how the overall allocation will look.

QIB Shares Offered

Not more than 50.00% of the Net offer

NII (HNI) Shares Offered

Not less than 15.00% of the Offer

Retail Shares Offered

Not less than 35.00% of the Offer

The overall allocation to QIBs includes the anchor portion, so the anchor shares allotted will be deducted from the QIB quota for the purpose of the public issue. With 30% of the QIB quota going out to anchors, the QIBs will be left with just 20% residual quota in the main IPO opening on 04th September 2023.

Finer points of anchor allocation process

Before we go into the details of the actual anchor allotment, a quick word on the process of anchor placement. The anchor placement ahead of an IPO/FPO is different from a pre-IPO placement in that the anchor allocation has a lock-in period of just one month, although under the new rules, part of the anchor portion will be locked in for 3 months. It is just to give confidence to investors that the issue is backed by large established institutions.

However, the anchor investors cannot be allotted shares at a discount to the IPO price. This is explicitly stated in the SEBI revised regulations as under, “As per the Securities and Exchange Board of India (Issue of Capital and Disclosure Requirement) Regulations, 2018, as amended, in case the Offer Price discovered through book building process is higher than the Anchor Investor Allocation Price, then the Anchor investors will be required to pay the difference by the pay-in as specified in the revised CAN.

An anchor investor in an IPO is normally a qualified institutional buyer (QIB) like a foreign portfolio investor or mutual fund or insurance company or a sovereign fund which invests before the IPO is made available to the public as per SEBI regulations. Anchor portion is part of the public issue, so the IPO portion to the public (QIB portion) is reduced to that extent. As initial investors, these anchors make the IPO process more attractive for investors, and instil confidence in them. Anchor investors also largely aid in price discovery of the IPO

While the GMP has surged to a robust level of ₹50, it shows an attractive premium of 51.02% on listing. This has led to reasonable anchor response with the anchors taking in 30% of the total issue size. The QIB portion in the IPO will be reduced to the extent of the anchor placement done above. Only the balance amount will be available for QIB allocation as part of the regular IPO.

The general norm is that, in anchor placements, smaller issues find it hard to get FPIs interested while larger issues do not interest mutual funds. Ratnaveer Precision Engineering Works Ltd has witnessed anchor interest largely from the global portfolio investors and other classified anchor investors with mutual funds not participating in the IPO anchor placement bidding of Ratnaveer Precision Engineering Works Ltd. Here there is no allocation of any anchor portion to the SEBI registered mutual funds in India.
