Speaking on the listing that is going to happen, Yash Gupta, Equity Research Analyst for Angel Broking Ltd said, “Ami Organics Limited expect to get a listing on 14th September 2021 and allotment will be received by the investors in a couple of days. As overall IPO got subscribed 64.5 times and retail portion got subscribed by 13.36 times, so it is expected that one investor out of twelve will get the allotment.”
He then added, “Ami Organics IPO was priced at Price to Earnings of 35.6 times and EV/EBITDA of 25.7 times at the upper price band of the IPO based on FY2021 numbers. Which is on the higher side, compared to the listed peer group. If we look at the current Grey Market Premium is at ₹145 i.e 23 per cent at the upper price band of the IPO. We suggest short term investors to book profit on listing day if they receive the allotment.”
