The basis of allotment is expected to be finalised today while shares would get credited in demat accounts of successful applicants by Friday. Investors who could not get shares in the allotment process will get refunds on Thursday.
While UTI Asset Management Company (AMC) has been quoting at a discount in the unlisted market following its not-so-impressive subscription levels, Mazagon Dock Shipbuilders, due its small size of Rs 444 crore and a whopping 157.41 times subscription levels, is holding on to strong premium in the grey market.
Abhay Doshi, an independent dealer in unlisted shares, said improvement in the secondary market sentiment on a rally that entered the fifth day on Wednesday has lifted grey market premium for Mazagon Dock Shipbuilders to around Rs 115 level. It had fallen to Rs 95 earlier. UTI AMC, the other IPO, whose basis of allotment and listing date will be the same as Mazagon, is quoting at a discount of Rs 15-20, after widening as much as Rs 30 per share.
“For Mazagon Dock Shipbuilders, everyone is waiting for the allotment status. We see further upside in premiums, albeit a limited one, if the market sentiment stays strong,” Doshi said.
Sagar Shah of Ascent Wealth Advisors pegs Mazagon’s grey market premium at Rs 109. At these premium levels, the stock is expected to list at a premium of up to 79.31 per cent.
