Strong listing for Sadhav Shipping IPO, then upper circuit

Sadhav Shipping IPO had a real strong listing on 01st March 2024, listing at a premium of 42.11%. After a strong  opening, the stock closed the day at the 5% upper circuit over the listing price. For the day, the stock closed comfortably above the IPO issue price and the IPO listing price at the close of trading on 01st March 2024. What also stood out about the stock was the robustly strong listing largely supported by a frenetic rally in the market indices. In the aftermath of the stellar GDP numbers reported by the Indian economy for the third quarter of FY24, the Nifty showed no signs of relenting as it closed 356 points on the Nifty and 1,245 points higher on the Sensex. In the last few days, the Nifty has been volatile but once the GDP data was out, both the indices closed at record highs. The Nifty closed the weed at record highs of 22,339 and the Sensex also closed at record levels of 73,745.

During the day, the markets were driven higher by a number of factors, chief them among being the GDP numbers reported late on 29th February 2024. Against the street expectations of GDP for Q3FY24 in the range of 6.6% to 7.2%, the actual GDP reading for Q3 came in sharply higher at 8.4%. Even the full year GDP estimate was upped from 7.3% to 7.6%, but most experts now concede that the actual full year GDP could also be closer to the 8% mark. That puts India on a new higher plane of growth altogether. To add to the narrative, the fiscal deficit as of the end of January also came in at just 63.6% of the full year target, boosting the Nifty and the Sensex further.

Subscription and price performance of Sadhav Shipping IPO on listing day

Let us now turn to the subscription story of Sadhav Shipping IPO. With robust subscription of 65.52X for the retail portion, and 184.58X for the HNI / NII portion; the overall subscription was very strong at 135.69X. The IPO was a fixed price IPO issue with the IPO price fixed at ₹95 per share. Being a fixed price issue, there was really no question of price discovery. The stock listed at a strong premium of 42.11% on the NSE SME segment.

However, subsequently, despite the stock seeing some volatility in the early parts of the day, it went on to close at the upper circuit of 5% over the listing price and the stock never really went below the listing price on the day of listing. This was reflective of strength in the stock amidst the strong market sentiments. The subscription normally impacts the price discovery in book built issues and the listing price. The strong subscription normally has a positive impact on the ability of the stock  in 3 ways, but in this case, being a fixed price IPO, the impact was only felt in two ways. Firstly, it led to the stock price listing at a very strong premium to the issue price. Secondly, despite the pressure on the overall market, the stock managed to close at the 5% upper circuit for the day, which is a sign of inherent strength in the stock.
