Verdict : Whether to Subscribe or Not
The only issue which perturbs us is that ICICI Bank sold its 4% stake in ICICI Life to Wipro Chairman Azim Premji’s Hasham Traders on November 27, 2015 at Rs. 226.34 per share.
Now my question to the IPO fraternity is that what has suddenly changed that the IPO is demanding a premium of 47.57% from the general public and other investors and this intrigues us. Thus to be honest the fair value is say 240 or 250 and not more than that as any higher price than that is just a market hysteria and thus would suggest to give a miss to this IPO.
