India's largest and world’s 5th largest commodity exchange, MCX sold 6.43 million equity shares of Rs 10 each, constituting 12.6% of the paid-up equity share capital of Rs 50.99 crore.
The issue was subscribed 54.13 times receiving an overwhelming response from every type of investor, with bids for 297.74 million shares against 5.5 million shares on offer, to garner over Rs 36,000 crore.
The retail portion of the Rs 650 crore IPO was oversubscribed 24.14 times, while qualified institutional buyers (QIBs) and non institutional investors' portions were oversubscribed by 49.12 and 150.35 times, respectively.
MCX is the first company to be listed after the capital market regulator Sebi introduced pre-open bidding with a view to contain wild fluctuation of stock prices on listing day of IPO shares.
As per the new regulations, announced by the capital market regulator on January 20, a pre-open bidding is conducted for one hour between 9 am to 10 am, following which an equilibrium price is discovered. A price band 20% is then imposed for listing-day trade.
The MCX public issue was entirely comprised offer-for-sale by existing shareholders, including main promoter Financial Technologies (India) Ltd, offering 6.4 million shares for sale, accounting for 12.6 per cent stake. Thus, money raised through the IPO will not go to the company as it is an offer for sale by the promoters.
