  • Life insurance behemoth LIC is likely to announce its share allotment status today.
  • India’s biggest IPO of a state owned insurance company’s largest IPO was subscribed 2.95 times.
  • The IPO will be listed on May 17 on exchanges.
The state-owned Life Insurance Corporation of India (LIC) IPO – largest in the history of the Indian stock market – is likely to announce the allotment status of its initial public offering (IPO) today, May 12.

The IPO was open for subscription from May 4 to May 9. The company received bids for 47 crore shares as against 16 crore shares on offer.

The LIC IPO witnessed decent demand from investors as its IPO was subscribed for 2.95 times the number of shares offered in the six days of IPO bidding process. Although the IPO size is massive, the enthusiasm had tamed to some extent because of the weak market environment.

Moreover, the grey market premium of the company’s shares show a discount of ₹10 from the higher end of the price band. This suggests that the stock may list at a discount to the application price.

The portion reserved for retail investors was oversubscribed by 1.99 times on the last day of the IPO bidding process.


The price band of the IPO is fixed at ₹902-₹949 per share, which most analysts believe is low compared to other players.

Post listing, LIC may become the fifth largest company in terms of market capitalization on exchanges after RIL, TCS, HDFC Bank and Infosys.
