LIC IPO Listing: Finally, date is here! 10 things to know before LIC lists its shares on NSE, BSE today
LIC IPO Listing: The shares will list on the BSE and NSE on May 17.
LIC IPO Listing: Finally, the long wait has come to an end as the country's largest insurer LIC will list its shares on the stock exchanges on Tuesday. The shares will list on the BSE and NSE on May 17. Here are 10 things to know before Life Insurance Corporation (LIC) lists its shares on NSE, BSE stock exchanges:-
LIC witnessed a good response from domestic investors in the initial share sale, which fetched Rs 20,557 crore to the government.
The government had fixed the issue price of LIC shares at Rs 949 apiece for allotment to investors.
LIC policyholders and retail investors have got the shares at a price of Rs 889 and Rs 904 apiece, respectively, after taking into account the discount offered.
The Initial Public Offering (IPO) of Life Insurance Corporation (LIC) closed on May 9 and shares were allocated to bidders on May 12.
The government sold over 22.13 crore shares or a 3.5 per cent stake in LIC through the IPO.
The price band of the issue was Rs 902-949 a share. However, shares were allocated to investors on May 12 at the upper end of the price band.
The LIC IPO -- India's largest to date -- closed with nearly 3 times subscription, predominately lapped up by retail and institutional buyers, but foreign investor participation remained muted.
LIC had last month reduced its IPO size to 3.5 per cent from 5 per cent decided earlier due to the prevailing choppy market conditions. Even after the reduced size of over Rs 20,557 crore, the LIC IPO is the biggest initial public offering ever in the country.
The share sale was initially planned to hit the markets in March. But the uncertainty in stock markets due to the Russia-Ukraine war pushed the issue to the current fiscal, which began in April.
The proceeds from the LIC issue make up for about a third of the Rs 65,000 crore disinvestment target set for the current fiscal.
IPOs so far
So far, the amount mobilised from the Paytm IPO in 2021 was the largest ever at Rs 18,300 crore, followed by Coal India (2010) at nearly Rs 15,500 crore and Reliance Power (2008) at Rs 11,700 crore.
