Heranba IPO is going to launch for subscription on 23, Feb 2021, and will be available for subscription till Thursday, February 25, 2021. The company is looking to raise Rs. 625 crore through public issue in an Offer for Sale of 90,15,000 Equity Shares, the subscription for anchor investors will open on February 22, 2021. 

Heranba Industries Limited (HIL) is a Gujarat (Vapi) based crop protection chemical manufacturer, It is one of the leading domestic producers of synthetic pyrethroids like cypermethrin, alphacypermethrin, deltamethrin, permethrin, lambda-cyhalothrin, etc.

Heranba IPO is the 8th IPO getting opened for subscription in 2021 after IRFC IPO, Indigo Paints IPO, HFFC IPO, Stovekraft IPOBrookfield India IPO, Nureca IPO & Railtel IPO. The equity shares of Heranba are proposed to be listed on both BSE and NSE.

The Heranba IPO issue will be sold in the price band of Rs 626-627 per share and the minimum lot quantity is 23 shares and in multiples thereof.

The latest Grey market premium price (GMP) for Heranba IPO’s were seen up by more than 40% and is currently trading as of today at Rs.250 This means people are expecting it to open on listing day to be at least at Rs.850 or more.

Having said that, I would like to add here that many people underestimated Stovekraft IPO before it’s launch, however the share price made a high of Rs.545 above the pre-open IPO price band of Rs.384.

Likewise for HFFC (Home first finance) IPO, the GMP before launch was at about Rs.650 however the stock got listed at Rs.540 on the other hand for IRFC IPO many people recommended a BUY and GMP were also seen at quite high range but unfortunately it open at a discount price and is currently trading at Rs.25.40. 

GMP does not mean in anyway a recommendation for an IPO, the financials of a company and its future prospectus tells a lot. Here is the thing no one can tell you whether the IPO will going to make a stellar debut or not, it is you who have to decide based on available information about the company.

Moreover the IPO’s now a days are very hot market every one wants to earn some quick money on listing day itself and there is nothing wrong about it.

Having said that, one must not forget to check the financials and do not fall for any recommendation from anyone, it is you hard earned money, you should decide whether to opt for the IPO or not.

You may watch various YouTube channels or read on different websites about recommendation for stocks and IPO, it is my humble suggestion and request please do not ever fall prey to it. Better than this is to invest in ETF’s?

Therefore, whenever you are buying IPO make sure the money invested is not the one which you my need it urgently, always use extra money which you may not require in near future, Otherwise stay away completely.

Now, coming back to the Heranba IPO let us talk about in brief about the company and its financials and other details step by step.

Important Things To Keep In Mind Before Applying For IPO’s:

  • Try to fill for the same IPO online from different DP ID i.e. if in your family have more than 1 account you can possibly get the allocation done in case of over subscription.
  • You should have a good knowledge of the sector and the company you are planning to invest.
  • Analysis of the company’s balance sheet is very crucial. A clear understanding of the company’s future projects and vision is very necessary to know whether it will have a sustainable future.
  • Investment decision has to be taken carefully and not in a hurry.
  • Read as much as you can about the company, its objectives for launching the IPO, its past history in business and its futures prospectus.
  • Don’t go for hype in the news, your analysis should be based on facts rather than gossips and rumors.
  • Many IPOs are oversubscribed. What this means is that the demand for shares is much higher than the shares available for sale. In such a situation, it is no surprise that many investors fail to get any shares allotted to them. This is why it is advisable to apply for IPO shares on the last day of bidding. This way, one can have a good estimate on how large the subscription will be. Also, in that case, one should bid for just one lot and not unnecessarily lock up their capital.
