Macrotech IPO aka Lodha Developers ltd. is getting launched for subscription today 7, April 2021, and will be available for subscription till Friday, April 9, 2021 Shares of the Macrotech IPO are likely to be allotted on April 16 and the stock is expected to make its debut on April 22.

The company is looking to raise Rs.2500 crore through fresh issuance of shares. Ahead of the IPO, the Macrotech has already raised Rs. 741 crore from 21 anchor investors at Rs.486 per equity share which is also the higher end of the price band.

Macrotech Developers Limited (MDL) has allocated more than 1.52 crore equity shares to anchor investors,

Among Anchor Investors from foreign portfolio participated were American Funds Insurance, Ivanhoe OP India Inc, Bayvk A2 Fonds, Wellington Trust Company Brown Advisory, Government of Singapore, Oxbow Master Fund, Segantii India Mauritius, Citigroup Global, Abu Dhabi Investment Authority, Platinum Asia Investments, Colonial First State Investments, Societe Generale and Morgan Stanley Asia.

Domestic investor HDFC Trustee received 2.1 lakh equity shares in the anchor book.

The equity shares of Macrotech IPO are proposed to be listed on both BSE and NSE.

The Macrotech IPO issue will be sold in the price band of Rs. 483-486 per share and the minimum lot quantity is 30 shares and in multiples thereof translating to a minimum investment of Rs 14,580.

The latest Grey market premium price (GMP) for Macrotech IPO’s were seen up by more than 9-10% and were trading around Rs.530-540 as of today, This means people are expecting it to open on listing day to be at least at Rs.530 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.

Another Favorite Easy Trip Planner failed to list at bumper premium as recommended by great TV anchors and YouTube stars.

Likewise for HFFC (Home first finance) IPO, the GMP before launch was at about Rs.650 however the stock got listed at Rs.540 (This was Recommended by Famous Business news Anchor? ) 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. 

There are many such examples of IPO’s doing just opposite of Grey market premium price. GMP does not mean in anyway a recommendation for an IPO, the financials of a company and its future prospectus tells a lot.

Let me show you the returns for the IPO’s launched in 2021 and you may get surprised that most of them have given negative return, checkout the image below:

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.

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.

The real estate market contributed approximately 6% to India’s GDP in 2017 and is likely to contribute approximately 13% to India’s GDP by 2025.

Let us look at some of the strength and weakness of Lodha Group.

Some of the qualitative factors and strengths of Lodha Group:

  1. MDL’s sales from India Operations for FY20 and 9MFY21 were ₹6,570 cr and ₹3,351 cr, respectively. Its Gross Collections from India Operations for FY20 and 9MFY21 were ₹8,190 cr and ₹2,893 cr, respectively.
  2. The MMR is considered the most attractive real estate market in the Top Seven Indian Markets, having the largest share of supply and absorption, as well as the highest average base selling price, of residential units from 2016 to 2020, catering to a wide spectrum of income and demography (Source: Anarock Report).
  3. MDL has a diversified portfolio of residential developments, spread across price points and micro-markets in the MMR. Its developments cater to wide spectrum of economic and demographic segments, from luxury residences in South Mumbai to large, integrated townships in the extended suburbs offering affordable homes.
  4. Over the years, MDL has established a strong reputation and track record in affordable and mid-income as well as premium housing projects. In affordable and mid-income housing, MDL has introduced one or more high-quality amenities, such as a large swimming pool, a private movie theatre, a cricket ground, a football stadium and an indoor swimming pool. MDL has developed prominent projects in the premium and luxury housing category in their respective locations as well.
  5. MDL has the ability to identify land, acquire it at competitive cost, aggregate it from several landowners and design a master plan to develop township projects. Upon development of the townships, Government agencies develop the surrounding infrastructure such as enhancing road and railway connectivity to improve the standard of living for the residents of the townships.
  6. MDL is currently developing large townships located at Palava (Navi Mumbai, Dombivali Region) and Upper Thane under affordable and mid-income housing projects.

  2. As of December, Macrotech had unsold residential inventory of about 14.8 million squarefeet, and 5.5 million square feet of ready-to-move unsold inventory in India. The Mumbai Metropolitan Region may be exposed to natural disasters, putting its projects in region at risk.
  3. MDL has substantial amount of debt (₹18,662 cr of aggregate outstanding borrowings on a consolidated basis as of December 31, 2020), which could affect its ability to obtain future financing or pursue growth strategy. The company also has contingent liabilities aggregating to ₹782 cr as of December 31, 2020.
  4. COVID-19 has caused construction delays due to varying factors, caused a material decline in general business activity, impacted lease commitments for commercial developments, etc. The extent to which COVID-19 may affect MDL’s business and operations in the future is uncertain and cannot be predicted.
  5. There are material outstanding legal proceedings involving the Company, Subsidiaries, Associates, Directors, Promoters and Group Companies. These proceedings are pending at different levels of adjudication before various courts, tribunals, enquiry officers and appellate tribunals.
