Star Health IPO Subscribed 20% On Day 2
Subscription in billionaire investor Rakesh Jhunjhunwala-backed Star Health and Allied Insurance Co. continued to be slow on the second day of the Rs 7,247-crore initial public offering.
The issue was subscribed 20% at the end of the second day, with the retail portion subscribing 89%. Demand in other categories remained subdued.
The private health insurer’s IPO comprises a fresh issue and an offer for sale, according to its red herring prospectus. It will sell shares at Rs 870-900 apiece, seeking a market value of Rs 51,806 crore at the upper end of the price band.
Of the net offer, 75% is reserved for qualified institutional buyers, 15% for non-institutional buyers, and 10% for retail investors.
Promoter and promoter group shareholding will fall to 58.4% after the share sale, while the public will own the rest. Jhunjhunwala, one of the promoters, will not dilute his stake.
The Chennai-based company will use the proceeds from the fresh issue to augment capital base and maintain solvency levels.
