New Delhi: LIC IPO GMP appears to be improving on day five of the offer on Sunday, May 8, 2022. The Life Insurance Corporation of India (LIC) opened its mega-initial public offering (IPO) on May 4, in what is touted as the largest IPO by an Indian company. So far, the IPO has received strong demand from retail investors, policyholders and employees. However, it appears to be failing to attract QIBs, as of now.
On the fourth day of bidding, the IPO was subscribed 1.66 times. The IPO will remain open on day five of the offer on Sunday, May 8, to let interested investors place their bids.
LIC IPO Latest GMP
LIC IPO GMP (grey market premium) stood at Rs 50 on May 7, according to market watchers. The LIC IPO’s GMP has been lowered slightly after the recent sell-off in the secondary markets.
However, the GMP has now started to get better as it stood at Rs 45 on May 6. In the coming days ahead of the IPO, the premium could further increase, with the rising demand for IPO shares.
LIC IPO Expected Listing Price
The GMP suggests that LIC IPO shares could list at Rs 1,009 at the higher end of the price band (Rs 949), meaning that allottees could receive a 6% gain with the listing of shares on public exchanges.
