For the day, the stock closed comfortably above the IPO issue price as well as the listing price. In a sense, the strength in the markets also helped sentiments around the stock. On 09th August 2023, the NSE Nifty closed 62 points higher at 19,633 levels while the Sensex closed 149 points higher at 65,996 levels. Despite the stock listing with a very strong premium of 42.72%, the stock rallied further and closed at exactly the 5% upper circuit for the day. For SME IPOs, the upper circuit of 5% is calculate from the listing price on the first day.

The stock of Zeal Global Services Ltd did show a lot of strength on opening and tried to hold higher. In terms of the day’s low, it only briefly went below the opening price for the day but quickly recovered to close at the 5% upper circuit. The stock closed above the IPO listing price and also the issue price on the first day of listing. Being an NSE SME IPO, it is only traded on the SME segment of NSE. Zeal Global Services Ltd opened 42.72% higher and the opening price turned out to be very near to the low price for the day. The strength is rather surprising because the subscription was extremely moderate for the company in the IPO. For instance, the subscription level was 3.85X for the retail portion and 4.26X for the HNI / NII portion; resulting in an overall oversubscription of a very moderate 4.06X for the IPO issue as a whole. For such a tepid response, the performance on the day of listing was truly phenomenal. Despite the rather moderate subscription numbers, for the retail and the HNI / NII investors, the stock managed to list at a huge premium on a day when the market sentiments were also fortunately positive. More importantly, it managed to close with substantial gains and even above the listing price.
