Only 79 percent subscribed to IPO

The company was looking to raise Rs 7249 crore through IPO by issuing 4.49 crore equity shares, but applications were received for only 3.56 crore shares. 75 per cent of the IPOs were reserved for qualified institutional buyers (QIBs), and this quota was subscribed only 1.03 times. While the reserve share of retail investors was also subscribed 1.1 times. While the reserve quota for non-institutional investors and company employees was subscribed only 19 and 10 percent.
