Midhani issue gets 64% sold on Day 2

The ₹4,017-crore IPO of ICICI Securities was subscribed 0.29 times at the end of Thursday, the first day of the offering.

The IPO of the domestic brokerage firm will close for subscription on March 26.

The issue consists of an offer-for-sale of up to 7.72 crore equity shares by promoter ICICI Bank, which includes reservation of over 38.62 lakh shares for ICICI Bank shareholders. The offer would constitute 23.98 per cent of the post-offer paid-up equity share capital.

Ahead of the IPO, the broking company on Wednesday mopped up ₹1,718 crore from anchor investors. The firm has allotted 3.3 crore shares to 58 anchor investors at ₹520 a share — the upper end of the price band.

The anchor investors include Temasek, Fidelity, Fairfax, Nomura, Amansa Holdings, BlackRock, HDFC MF, DSP BlackRock, Reliance MF, PremjiInvest, SBI MF, Birla MF and IDFC MF.

Promoter selling shareholder ICICI Bank will be entitled to the entire proceeds of the offer after deducting the offer expenses and relevant taxes thereon. Hence, ICICI Securities will not receive any proceeds from the public issue.
