November IPOs- Blow hot, blow cold

Nine  companies went public in November, raising nearly ₹10,000 crore from investors. How did these IPOs perform?  Here’s a quick round-up.

DCX Systems kicked off the November IPO rush, debuting on 11 November. The company listed  at a premium of 39% over its issue price of ₹207 per share. The IPO issue was oversubscribed by 69.7 times.  

Meanwhile, IPOs of Kaynes Technology, Global Health and Archean Chemical also received an upbeat response from investors and were listed at premiums that ranged between 12-32% respectively. Shares of Bikaji Foods also got off to a decent start, listing at 8% premium at ₹332 per share.

But, not all companies were this lucky. IPOs from Keystone Realtors, Five Star Business and Fusion Micro Finance received a tepid response from investors. The retail portion of these issues was undersubscribed. These IPOs had to rely on the institutional investors (QIB) category to make the cut.

Shares of Five Star Business and Fusion Micro Finance listed at a discount of 2 to 5% below its issue price, while Keystone Realtors made a modest debut at 3% premium over the issue price. while that of Inox Green listed at 7% discount to its issue price.

To sum up, investor response to IPOs in November has been much like the weather - fickle. Will Santa bring cheer to IPO-bound companies in December? Watch this space!
