The IPO was subscribed 1.59 times, with HNIs portion at 2.32 times, QIBs at 1.42 times and retail investors at 1.38 times.
In our IPO Analysis, we had concluded, “ Company’s topline growth is linked to the revival of auto sector, especially to fortunes of two-wheeler (2W) industry, near term prospects for which do not appear bright. Expensive pricing and heavy dilution, along with dependence on cyclical auto sector make this small cap stock unattractive. Hence, the IPO is an ‘avoid’.”
