In news from the initial public offer (IPO) space, Paradeep Phosphates shares hit the bourses today delivering around 4.7% premium to its allottees.

The company's tepid listing can be attributed to the current market sentiments and a lukewarm response from the investors.

Paradeep Phosphates is one of the largest manufacturers of non-urea-based fertilizers and has competitive advantages in terms of backward integration and location.

However, it operates in a highly regulated industry, with high dependency on the agriculture sector. Thus, the business is subject to climatic conditions and is cyclical in nature.

Paradeep Phosphates aims to use the proceeds of the fresh issue to partly finance the acquisition of the fertilizer manufacturing facility in Goa.
