The bumper listing was already on the cards!

Heranba's public issue had received positive reviews from top brokerages, and the grey market was also ready to pay a hefty premium for its shares.

"Company return ratios are superior to peers (ROE is above 30%). Company has a strong financial position and has been generating positive cash flow. We expect a good listing for the company," said Keshav Lahoti, associate equity analyst at Angel Broking, in a post IPO note.

The IPO garnered a massive response from investors and was oversubscribed nearly 88 times — making it the second most successful IPO in terms of subscription in 2021. According to data from the stock-exchanges, the issue received bids for 58.15 crore equity shares against an offer size of 69.81 lakh shares.

The shares were commanding a premium of ₹260-270 in the grey market over the set price band of ₹626-627 per share, ahead of the listing. However, the grey market is not an official measure of the market premium.
