  • Adani IPO breaks all records

    In a record breaking performance, Mundra Port and SEZ Ltd (MPSEZ) created new benchmarks in the Indian capital market by mobilising a staggering amount of Rs 2,07,207 crore in its initial public offer (IPO), which was oversubscribed by 116 times.

    When the offer closed on Wednesday, the investing community was left gaping at this stellar performance by an Ahmedabad-based company, as MPSEZ outstripped several high profile IPOs of big-time players like Power Grid Corporation, Reliance Petroleum, ICICI, Power Finance, TCS and DLF.

    The MPSEZ IPO has been oversubscribed 159 times by qualified institutional bidders (QIBs), 156 times by high networth individuals (HNIs) and 14 times by retail investors. Going by weightage, the over-subscription stood at 116 times.

    The MPSEZ, promoted by Gautam Adani-led Adani Group, began its journey 13 years ago to set up a captive port facility. The IPO received over 12 lakh applications.

    The company had entered the capital markets on November 1 for an equity share of Rs 10 each at a price band of Rs 400-440 to mobilise Rs 1,717 crore for expanding its port and SEZ related infrastructure at Mundra.

  • Adani MPSEZ shares likely to debut at about Rs.1,000

    Indian property magnate Gautam Adani may be about to add $4 billion to his personal fortune.

    Adani's Mundra Port & Special Economic Zone Ltd. probably will more than double during its first trading day in Mumbai today, according to a survey of five investors who are monitoring the initial public offering. That would boost the value of his family's 81.3 percent stake to $7.8 billion.

    Adani, 45, is among eight Indian developers whose wealth exceeded $1 billion for the first time this year, Forbes reported. A government plan to spend $500 billion on ports, roads and airports has lured investors to developers focusing on infrastructure.

    Infrastructure Spending

    Adani's Mundra Port, India's largest cargo terminal outside government control, attracted $52 billion of bids for the IPO, 116 times the stock for sale. Adani declined to be interviewed for this story.

    The IPO raised 17.7 billion rupees ($446 million) this month with shares sold at 440 rupees. The shares may debut today at about 1,000 rupees apiece based on off-market trading by investors who missed out on the sale.

    Mundra Port is about 70 kilometers (45 miles) from the airport at Bhuj in the western state of Gujarat. The port can cater to companies including Reliance Industries Ltd., which is constructing the world's biggest refinery in the state.

    India's per capita income increased 40 percent in the past four years, helping real-estate developers as prices for homes in the southern part of Mumbai almost doubled in the past two years, according to data compiled by Bloomberg. Prices in New Delhi, Hyderabad, Bangalore and Chennai also climbed as more local and overseas companies expand operations.
