IOC OFS gets through despite Monday Massacre

IOC OFS that opened for online bidding on Monday i.e. 24.08.15 has passed through hard time as the market collapsed by nearly 6% and all counters were in red due to heavy sell-off from across the board.

Despite such disaster, IOC OFS got little over 1-time subscription. Retail portion, however, remained heavily undersubscribed indicating that panic in the market kept them away from bidding. IOC had offered 242795247 shares to dilute 10% stake of GoI in the company.

The indicative price has been the same as floor price announced for this OFS. Based on the last traded price, investors have ended with a notional loss on their investment on day one for non-retail investors. For retail investors, due to 5% discount, based on indicative price, their investment cost per share will be around Rs. 367.65 and thus, they have been the gainers.

I want to get know that if I bid @ 395.30 for 40 shares in retailer, I got share @ 375.95 Why it so when they give 382, after 5% discount it should be 367. AM I right? or not please suggest. My broker saying that it is not the case.

As the Retail Investors have burned their fingers in PFC and Dredging Corp OFS, Govt should consider introducing Safety Net mechanism for the benefit of Retail Investors and in the interest of future PSU Disinvestment. Let Investor Associations take up this matter with SEBI.
