The LIC grey market premium has faded, and the stock now trades at a discount on the unlisted market.

Despite an enormous response from investors in the primary stock market, the insurer Life Insurance Corporation of India (LIC) fell on Wednesday. The insurance behemoth’s stock is expected to go public on May 17.

The insurer’s initial public offering (IPO) was approximately three times subscribed on the final day of the offering, May 9, thanks to a strong response from policyholders, employees, and retail investors. The firm set a price range of Rs 902-949 per share. However, retail investors and LIC workers received a special discount of Rs 45 per share. In addition, policyholders received a Rs 60 discount.

According to a market observer who deals in unlisted shares, LIC is trading in the unlisted market at a discount of Rs 20. Previously, on April 30, the insurance behemoth’s GMP was hovering around Rs 90. The premium at which grey market IPO shares are traded before they are listed on the stock exchange is known as the grey market premium.

According to Abhay Doshi, proprietor of UnlistedArena.com, LIC IPO shares are available on the unlisted market at a discount of Rs 20. “The initial public offering (IPO) pricing was kept at acceptable levels. The risky market conditions, on the other hand, worried investors. The primary market has been affected by a large IPO, broader market volatility, and interest rate hikes. We would have seen a decent response to the IPO of banking behemoth if market circumstances had stayed stable,” Doshi remarked.

The issue received a ‘Subscribe’ grade from most brokerages for both listings and long-term gains.

“LIC to focus on its strong growth momentum by increasing market share and focusing more on underwriting quality and the high margin product mix,” according to KR Choksey Shares and Securities. The company’s valuation will be comparable to its private counterparts, given the development potential for the pension and annuity segment and the company’s position as the market leader in the insurance sector. Investors can subscribe to the initial public offering for both listing and long-term benefits.”

“At the upper price levels, LIC’s embedded value with a market cap of Rs 6,00,200 crore is quite lower when compared to the three listed peers like HDFC Life Insurance, SBI Life Insurance, and ICICI Prudential Life Insurance, where the average embedded value stood at Rs 3,10,500 crore and the average market capitalisation-to-embedded value ratio arrived at 3.4 times,” according to Anand Rathi Share and Stock Brokers. As a result, the issue appears to be highly appealing to investors.”
