Adani Wilmar IPO: Fundamentals
Speaking on the fundamentals in regard to Adani Wilmar IPO; Aprajita Saxena, Research Analyst at Trustline Securities said, “Adani Wilmar enjoys a leadership position in branded edible oil and packaged food business. It has strong brand recall and broad customer reach coupled with a diversified products portfolio and market leading brands. It is largest oleochemical manufacturers in India with Pan India network and robust distribution infrastructure. Demographic change, increase in e-commerce reach, increasing household consumption and supportive government policies are the strong tailwinds of the company."
Adani Wilmar IPO: GMP
As Adani Wilmar IPO GMP is Rs 28, it means grey market is expecting this public issue to list at around Rs 258 ( Rs 230 + Rs 28), which is around 13 per cent higher from the price band of Rs 218 to Rs 230. However, secondary market experts said that GMP is not an ideal indicator about the expected listing fain as it has nothing to do with the balance sheet of the company.
Adani Wilmar IPO: Listing Predictions
Abhay Doshi, Founder at UnlistedArena.com said, “Adani Wilmar IPO got moderate response from bidders due to the negative sentiment in the secondary markets. However, fundamentals of the company suggest that one can expect up to 15 per cent listing gain from the public issue."
“From fundamental perspective, Adani Wilmar is a quality company as its FMCG products are easily available at majority of the retail FMCG outlet. Apart from this, its products are one of the market leaders; however, current market mood is dampener as there has been heavy selloff on last two trade sessions. So, I am expecting this public issue to list in the range of Rs 250 to Rs 260, delivering around 10 per cent discount to its lucky bidders," said Anuj Gupta, Vice President at IIFL Securities.
