The issue was open for retail investors, QIBs and for the HNI / NIIs. There was a broad quota designed for the retail and the non-retail. The non-retail quota permitted HNI / NIIs and the QIBs to invest in the IPO. The table below captures the allocation reservation done for each of the categories out of the total number of shares offered in the IPO. A total of 2,36,000 shares were allocated as market maker portion to NNM Securities Ltd, which will act as a market maker to provide bid-ask liquidity on the counter post listing. Market maker action not only improves liquidity in the counter but also reduces the basis risk. Here is how the allocation was done for the IPO across market, retail, and non-retail.


Anchor Investor Shares Offered


Market Maker Shares Offered

2,36,000 shares (5.07%)

Non-Retail Shares Offered

22,08,000 shares (47.46%)

Retail Shares Offered

22,08,000 shares (47.46%)

Total Shares Offered

46,52,000 shares (100%)


As can be seen, from the above table, the company has not made any allocation to the anchor investors, with no quota anyways dedicated to the QIB investors. Nearly 5.07% of the issue was reserved for the market makers, to provide buy and sell two-way quotes to ensure liquidity in the counter after listing. The market makers offer liquidity on both sides and reduce the basis risk in the counter. The balance shares were divided equally among the retail investors and the non-retail investors, predominantly comprising of HNIs / NIIs and to a lesser extent institutions too. Since there was no anchor allocation in the IPO, there was no anchor bidding one day prior to the opening of the IPO.

Both the segments saw strong traction on the last and final day of the IPO i.e., on August 29, 2023. The HNI / NII portion sees the funding applications and the corporate applications come in on the last day. There is an allocation of 236,000 shares to NNM Securities Ltd for market making.
