The listing managed to buck analysts' expectations. Due to low grey market premium, lower-than-expected response to its IPO and ongoing market volatility, the stock was expected to make a flat debut.
The issue was subscribed just 53 percent during December 23-27, but the IPO sailed through after the company significantly reduced its offer-for-sale component.
The total offer size was reduced to Rs 250.76 crore, comprising fresh issuance of shares worth Rs 51.27 crore and an OFS of Rs 199.5 crore. Earlier, the IPO size was Rs 388 crore, consisting of fresh issue of Rs 60 crore and an offer-for-sale of Rs 328 crore by promoter and investor.
Also, the final issue price has been fixed at lower end of price band of Rs 94-99 per share, but its anchor book was subscribed at upper price band.

Manish Chowdhury, Head of Research at Stoxbox, who had given an 'avoid' rating to the IPO due to rich valuation vis-à-vis its peer group (SIS and CMS Info Systems) and limited competitive advantage in the marketplace, feels that investors who got allotment should look for better opportunities in the market.
