    GIC IPO will not be listed at discount. Govt. of India wishes to further it’s disinvestment process. GIC is a GOI disinvestment, if the retail investors suffer any loss in this IPO on the day of listing, the retail investors will be demotivated to subscribe to any other IPO by any PSU in a short future period. This will hamper the disinvestment target of the GOI. To avoid any such demotivation and thereby reluctance of the retail investors in the future, the GOI will ensure that the retail investors don’t suffer in any manner for atleast a short forseable period. Thus GOI will put its financial institutions on standby and order them to buy at amounts that don’t hurt the retail investors. The GOI can also gift the retail investors in DIWALI by giving away profits by raising the listing price, so as to promote more retail participation for future IPO’s of govt. PSU’s. In any manner what so ever, it does not seem that GIC will list at a discount. Also, if this opens at a discount, the retail participants who have just started to open up their wallets thereby contributing to the oversubscriptions to the IPO may again close their wallets. Institutional investors and HNI’s who have profited heavily from the IPO season this year, cannot afford to lose the retail enthusiasm, they are also well aware of the fact that if this opening hurts retail investors, they may not be able to make much earning in the forthcoming IPO’s and hence they will also ensure not to let this IPO list at a discount. This IPO was undersubscribed by retail investors and the GOI and other financial institutions will make it a point by giving huge profits to the retail subscribers so that those who missed it would regret it and not miss future IPO’s. In any case GIC will be a huge success.
