LIC’s IPO anchor investors have stuck with the insurer despite suffering significant losses.
The largest life insurance firm in the nation, Life Insurance Corporation of India, has experienced a difficult, uncertain, and bleak post-listing life.
Since the company’s debut on May 17, the value of its shares has decreased by 24%. Although the stock has just begun to rebound, at one point it was trading at a 31.5 percent discount to its issue price of Rs 949.
It is safe to say that all investor groups have lost money with the third-largest life insurer in the world in terms of premium. Although there is widespread high scepticism among other investors and analysts, the company can take comfort in the fact that the majority of the mutual funds that took part in its anchor book have maintained their confidence. Prior to its maiden public sale, LIC raised Rs 5,627 crore from anchor investors by allocating 59.3 million shares to them (IPO).
As the government reconsiders the export duty on steel products, Tata Steel, JSW Steel, and SAIL soar.
On Monday, stocks of steel producers such as Tata Steel, JSW Steel, and SAIL increased as sources claimed the government was exploring a plan to end a 15 percent export tax on some steel goods.
In afternoon trades, shares of Tata Steel, JSW Steel, JSPL, and Steel Authority of India Ltd (SAIL) increased by 3 to 5 percent.
The government would take into account the industry’s request to eliminate the 15 tariff on the export of a few products before the monsoon season is done. On whether to exempt steel from export duties, a decision has not yet been made.
Following a meeting with Tata Steel, SAIL, JSW Steel, JSPL, and ArcelorMittal, the Finance Minister recently gave industry leaders the assurance that the government will review the duty on particular products. Major steel producers have seen their market capitalization decline as a result of margin pressure brought on by weak domestic demand and high export duties, which cost them international clients.
