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.

With these 6 Mega IPOs around the corner, the primary market is set to witness some action in the coming days.

Moving on to corporate earnings, Piramal Enterprises' financial services business reported net loss of Rs 3.2 bn in March quarter due to additional provisioning and interest reversals totaling Rs 10.4 bn.

The company said the additional provisioning and interest reversals correspond to select wholesale non-RE accounts.

Piramal Enterprises which is engaged in the financial and pharma business, posted consolidated net profit of Rs 1.5 bn against a loss of Rs 5.1 bn in the same quarter last year.

Meanwhile, consolidated revenue grew 22% year-on-year to reach Rs 41.6 bn from Rs 34 bn reported in March 2021 quarter.

Sales were boosted by a 55% growth in the India consumer products segment which forms 9% of pharma sales. The strong showing by power brands and healthy launches (nearly 40) drove the superior performance in the ICP segment.

Piramal Enterprises share price hit a 52-week low after it slipped 11.2% on the BSE today.

The company's board of directors has recommended a final dividend of Rs 33 per equity share.
