Aeroflex Industries Lists At Rs 197; 83 Per Cent Premium To Its IPO Price


Aeroflex Industries on Thursday made a stellar debut on the exchanges, listing at 82.78 per cent premium over the issue price of Rs 108. The stock started trading at Rs 197.40 on the BSE and Rs 190 on the NSE. The Rs 351-crore public issue got good response from investors, subscribing 97.11 times during August 22-24. Qualified institutional buyers have bought 194.73 times the reserved portion, followed by high net worth individuals, who have bid 126.13 times the allotted quota, and retail investors 34.41 times.

Ashish Kacholia-backed firm’s IPO listing was more or less in-line with analysts’ expectations as the company enjoys the first mover advantage, robust subscription demand for IPO, and healthy financial performance with improving debt-to-equity ratio.
