About the GMP pricing for ROX Hi-Tech IPO

The grey market price (GMP) trading normally starts about 4-5 days prior to IPO opening and continues till the listing date. In the case of ROX Hi-Tech Ltd, we already have GMP data for the last 2 days, which should give a reasonable picture of the likely listing.

There are 2 factors that impact the GMP. Firstly, the market conditions have a deep impact on the GMP, especially the liquidity conditions in the market. Secondly, the extent of subscription for the IPO has a deep impact on the GMP as it is indicative of investor interest in the stock. GMP can also technically be in the negative, which means the stock would list at a discount to the issue price.

There is one small point to remember here. The GMP is not an official price point, just a popular informal price point. However, in most cases, it has been observed to be a good informal gauge of demand and supply for the IPO. Hence it does give a broad idea of how the listing is likely to be and how the post-listing performance of the stock would be.

How has the GMP panned out in last few days?

GMP tends to be a good mirror of the real stock story. More than the actual price, it is the GMP trend over time that gives insights about which direction the wind is blowing. Here is a quick GMP summary for ROX Hi-Tech Ltd for the 2 days, data is available.


Grey Market Price (GMP)

































In the above case, the GMP trend shows that the grey market premium has opened at around ₹30 per share, but has since rallied sharply to ₹75 for which GMP data is available. Of course, we have to await for the actual subscription numbers to flow in after the issue opens for subscription on 07th November 2023 and also watch the progress, as that would have a very significant impact on the GMP. In the past, stocks which got oversubscribed in the IPO also saw a very robust positive shift in the grey market pricing. For a start, ROX Hi-Tech Ltd has shown good traction in the grey market. Also, the IPO price has just been announced on Wednesday, so we must give some time for the prices to settle down and be able to reflect the pros and cons of the stock value.

If you consider the upper band price of the IPO of ROX Hi-Tech Ltd at ₹83 per share, then the likely listing price is being signalled at around ₹133 per share as per the GMP indicator on 02nd November 2023. This is dynamic and keeps changing. One data point to track will be the subscription update on the stock as that would chart the GMP course. Normally, the experience in the past has been that when the subscription ratio is much better than expected, it results in a surge in the grey market pricing (GMP).

The GMP of ₹50 on the upper band IPO price of ₹83 indicates a listing premium of a healthy 60.24% for ROX Hi-Tech Ltd over the IPO issue price. That pre-supposes a listing price of approximately ₹133 per share, when ROX Hi-Tech Ltd lists on 17th November 2023. Of course, these are purely approximations, so you must keep a margin of safety. One needs to observe the trend of GMP closely as that gives the best hints on listing status. Look at the time series trend than the absolute numbers.
