Five Star Business Finance — a Chennai-based financier — made a weak debut in the secondary market on Monday, as its shares debuted on BSE at Rs 450 apiece, a discount of 5.1 percent to the upper end of its IPO price range. On NSE, the stock is listed at Rs 468.8 apiece — a discount of 1.1 percent. The listing was in line with investors' response to its IPO, which concluded earlier this month with an overall booking of 70 percent.
The stock finished the listing day at Rs 489.5 apiece on BSE and Rs 490 apiece on NSE — a premium of around three percent.
The IPO, to raise up to Rs 1,960 crore, received bids for 2.1 crore shares as against the three crore shares on offer, according to exchange data. The public offer comprised an offer for sale (OFS) by existing shareholders — meaning the company would not get any proceeds from the issue.
Out of the total issue, 50 percent was reserved for qualified institutional buyers, 15 percent for high net worth individuals and the remaining 35 percent for retail investors.
Five Star Business Finance's debut was also in line with the trend in the grey market — or an unofficial market for unlisted securities — since its IPO.

The company is adding 60-70 branches annually as against 40-50 pre-COVID, he said "Today we are adding close to 60-70 branches. So the ticket size, branch opening and more sourcing officers for Five Star will take its growth 2x better than the industry."
The company added 70 branches in the last 12 months, he said.
