The appetite for Burger King India’s IPO has been building up with the issue getting subscribed on day one itself. Given its robust franchisee model, valuations, and strong expansion plans — analysts had recommended subscribing to this IPO.

According to Angel Broking, Burger King was priced at a significant discount compared to Jubilant Foodworks and looking at the valuation and the growth of the company, the issue was ‘attractive.’

The IPO opened up on December 2, and ahead of the offering, the company raised ₹364.5 crore from 55 anchor investors, including ICICI Prudential, Fidelity Funds, Government of Singapore, IDFC MF, SBI MF, among others. The IPO price band was set at ₹59-60 per share, and the grey market premium promises strong listing gains.

The grey market premium of the food giant also soared nearly 58% to ₹34-35, up from 42% on the first day of subscription. The grey market premium is the measure of the extra amount that the market is ready to pay for a newly listed company’s shares. However, it is not an official measure of the market premium. But it is a fair indicator of demand for the shares in the market.
