How can one raise the concerns / issues with the registrar of an IPO to SEBI, about the unfair practices / mal-practices followed in allotment of shares in the lottery?
I just received the allotment basis data for Happiest Minds IPO. For the applications of 1 lot (ie applications demanding 90 shares) the allotment ratio was 52:4061, and for applications of rest of the lots ie applications of 2 lots to 13 lots ie applications demanding 180 shares to 1170 shares, the allotment ratio was common 11:436.
In this case, what is the point of applying for highest lot?
Will this strategy not encourage people to subscribe in the IPO with application of smaller lots from DEMAT accounts of other people, which is not right actually?

I think Karvy (K F Infotech) must be interrogated for the reason behind this kind of allotment strategy.

In future, I will think well before applying for an IPO for which Karvy is appointed as registrar.

@Aniket ji and others who bid multiple applications in the name of family members.

Anyone found any pattern in last couple of years allotments?

I put 7 application most of the times but allotments comes in 2-3 names only

My parents never got allotment when ipo over subscribed

My grand parents got maximum number of allotments (all crucial like Dixon,amber irctc happiest,fine org. ,And many more)

Other 3 members got 1-2 allotments

÷history of last 3 years÷

Dose other board members finding this kind of experience or my family is unique?

(I don't believe that Karvy or Link intime are doing anything improperly or wrongly)

In the short term, HMT will go below 350 (listing price) and will give opportunity to enter for investors who believe in this stock for long term.

Short term investors may look to exit.

Total Free Float Shares = 2,32,59,550 shares
Today’s EOD Delivery (NSE+BSE) = 2,20,27,093 (94.70%)
So that means 94.70% of Shareholders have Booked profit on listing day itself only.

Kindly think twice to make position in happiest mind at CMP of 370 after analyzing the above data.

@AhireR, Yes but if you see the forward earning 2021/22 its just 19. Plus coming from a service sector I wonder its rated so well on Glassdoor and into all the latest of technologies. Also a pizza seller demands a 105 PE and its not expensive so I feel if the growth remains for a year more than 500 will look peanuts to buy this stock. That's my medium term outlook.

ON this price level
1. what about PE? on 166 pe was 30+ and today's closing price 370 PE is 65+. Is that justify the share price?
2. Promotor age is 77. How long he will run the company.
3. Why promotor offload his stake.
