AdvertisementThe shares of the recently concluded Burger King India IPO are soaring in the grey market ahead of its listing on Monday. The company is proposed to list on both stock exchanges (BSE and NSE), and the net proceeds from IPO would be utilised to roll out new restaurants, and other corporate purposes.
The shares of Burger King India are hovering at a premium of around ₹49-51 in the grey market — which suggests an upside of 85% over the issue price band of ₹59-60.
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.
Stellar demand for its IPO
The public issue of the quick-service restaurant (QSR) chain saw a stellar demand — making it the second most successful IPO of 2020 after Mazagon Dock shipbuilders.
The offer was subscribed 157 times on December 4, the final day of bidding — as it received bids for 11.67 billion shares, against the 74.49 million on offer.
