Airtel’s Bharti Hexacom Lists At 32% Premium

Bharti Hexacom


Bharti Hexacom debuted on the stock market with a strong listing at ₹755 on Friday, a 32.5% premium over its initial public offering (IPO) price.

What Happened: Raising ₹4,285 crore, the IPO drew substantial interest, with bids exceeding the number available by more than 30 times, particularly from qualified institutional buyers (QIBs) whose quota was subscribed 48.57 times. Non-institutional investors followed at 10.52 times, while retail investors subscribed 2.83 times.

The IPO involved only an offer-for-sale (OFS) by Telecommunications Consultants India (TCIL), the sole public shareholder, which sold 7.5 crore equity shares or a 15% stake. Consequently, Bharti Hexacom will not receive any proceeds from the issue, as all funds go directly to TCIL.

Bharti Hexacom’s IPO is the largest since Mankind Pharma Ltd’s ₹4,330 crore offering last year.

As noted in a Bloomberg report, the success of this IPO could rejuvenate a market that has recently seen smaller IPOs, typically under $100 million (₹833 crore), which have nonetheless garnered robust interest from retail investors and experienced post-listing surges.
