    • Linktime or Karvey are not showing IPO allotment?
      My bount of Rs. 1313,872/- has been transferred to GIC…IPO allotment ka koi message nahi aya…
      Guide please

  1. GIC IPO will not be listed at discount. Govt. of India wishes to further it’s disinvestment process. GIC is a GOI disinvestment, if the retail investors suffer any loss in this IPO on the day of listing, the retail investors will be demotivated to subscribe to any other IPO by any PSU in a short future period. This will hamper the disinvestment target of the GOI. To avoid any such demotivation and thereby reluctance of the retail investors in the future, the GOI will ensure that the retail investors don’t suffer in any manner for atleast a short forseable period. Thus GOI will put its financial institutions on standby and order them to buy at amounts that don’t hurt the retail investors. The GOI can also gift the retail investors in DIWALI by giving away profits by raising the listing price, so as to promote more retail participation for future IPO’s of govt. PSU’s. In any manner what so ever, it does not seem that GIC will list at a discount. Also, if this opens at a discount, the retail participants who have just started to open up their wallets thereby contributing to the oversubscriptions to the IPO may again close their wallets. Institutional investors and HNI’s who have profited heavily from the IPO season this year, cannot afford to lose the retail enthusiasm, they are also well aware of the fact that if this opening hurts retail investors, they may not be able to make much earning in the forthcoming IPO’s and hence they will also ensure not to let this IPO list at a discount. This IPO was undersubscribed by retail investors and the GOI and other financial institutions will make it a point by giving huge profits to the retail subscribers so that those who missed it would regret it and not miss future IPO’s. In any case GIC will be a huge success.

  2. Looking at the limited downside, I made two applications for total 3 lakh. My reasoning is that even in the case of listing at 5% premium, full allotment will make me good profit.

    IMO, it is calculated risk with limited downside that makes good money in stock market. I made good money the same way in ICICI Prudential after listing.

    Still, don’t get why there is so much negativity on GIC on IPO forums. It is a good company and pricing is not high.

    Anyway, let’s see how it goes!

  3. Retail catagory me itna kom subscribe? I don’t belive this !!!!! 45/- discount dene k bad v pura nehi vora. Wo v sarkari company………..

  4. Few things that investors need to understand about this IPO.

    First – There is no discount in grey market but not great demand too as it is a big IPO and everyone in the retail category will get allotment. grey market demand is when there is shortage. In this case there is no shortage of shares. Just because there are many shares, it wouldn’t cause discount! That’s laughable!!

    Second – Underwriting losses are not like poor decisions which could have been avoided. Insurance is a business where one can not predict future and there are some years when claims just shoot up. This is a more important call investors need to take. If general insurance companies are fine for them, GIC should be a reasonable bet.

    I personally like the business and I’m investing. Even if discounted listing for some other reason, this is the kind of stock I would like to hold.

    • I agree, Iam invested n hope to make money in gic. Even if 5% profit on ipo price it will be good amount on 50000 application

  5. Few – ves worth considering before investment: Underwriting losses, high exposure to crop with concentration of almost 30% (monsoon dependency), most of ipo proceeds going to govt instead of capacity building, gaps visible in revenue and market cap

    • Misleading and false information. GMP has come down but not in negative. LIC has placed their big order which means it is going to be the anchor investor for this IPO.

    • Hello namesake! You shouldn’t be applying for listing gains. Wrong approach to an Insurance company. If you really wish to make money, real money, you need to “invest”. Long term. As far as the GMP is concerned it’s not full proof. Things could go either way on listing. But demand for GIC Re can’t be underestimated which we will either see on the last day of the bidding or few days post listing. Good luck.

  6. If you apply 208 shares at cut off you will get discount of rs. 9360 on an investment of rs. 180336. Great returns . Further if the shares list even at a premium of 5%, then returns will be more than 18000. apply for a Deewali Bonanza.

  7. Sabka Saath, Sabka Vikas! Allotment to all (hopefully), long term value creation (certainly)!

    People applying for listing gains will be biggest losers. Bear in mind.

    Long term investors must apply with full force.

    JSK..

  8. Great Things:
    PE = 25
    Book Value = 225 (p/b expected 4)
    RETAIL DISCOUNT = 5%
    ALLOTMENT POSSIBILITY = MINIMUM LOT TO EACH APPLICANT IS SURE
    EVEN HIGHER ALLOTMENT POSSIBLE TO APPLICANTS MAKING MORE THAN 1 LOT IN RETAIL QUOTA.

    VERDICT: APPLY WITH FULL FORCE

  9. GIC is a trusted company. It is showing fair revenue growth rate. PE is 25 and Price to NAV ratio is 4. It has a long history. Unlike other Insurance company’s issues where the PE investor were looking to be paid well for their investment, this issue has fair amount of fresh issue. It is a good bet for long term. Hope retail investor will get their discount which will make the deal even more sweeter.
