Two IPOs on the Table. Should You Subscribe to Them?

Two companies viz. Bharat Road Network and Dixon Technologies (India) Ltd are bringing their IPOs to the financial market today. The initial public offerings of both these companies will be open for subscription from 6th-8th September.

Dixon Technologies (India) expects to raise Rs 6 billion from its IPO today. The company plans to spend the proceeds on capacity expansion and debt repayment. It plans to offer about 33,93,425 equity shares of face value of Rs 10 each amounting to Rs 5.99 billion on the upper price band.

Further, it has raised Rs 1.8 billion by selling 1.02 million shares to institutional investors.

Meanwhile, Bharat Road Network also opened its IPO for subscription today aiming to garner around Rs 6 billion.

At least 75% of the issue will be allotted on a proportionate basis to qualified institutional buyers, of which the company may allocate up to 60% of the QIB portion to anchor investors, on a discretionary basis.

Do these companies have sound business models? Are they leaving enough money on the table for investors?

We have released our IPO note for both the above IPOs. You can access the same in our IPO section.

Revival of Stressed Power Assets

As per a leading financial daily, the government is formulating a novel scheme to revive stressed power assets by inviting competitive bids from them to supply electricity for five years.

This would be the government's biggest plan to support 34 stressed plants with a capacity of 40,000 megawatts (MW).

Accordingly, the power ministry is considering pooling electricity demand of various states and call tariff- based bids. Once the demand is finalised, the contracts will be passed on to the states. Guidelines for the scheme are likely to be issued in a month.

The above move will mean cheaper electricity for state utilities as well as help stranded plants to start operation and repay debt.

Oil Prices Rise after Hurricane Harvey Fallout

Oil rose to 4-week highs on Wednesday as reopening of US Gulf Coast refineries post hurricane Harvey renewed demand. Further, fears of potential damage to US oil production from Hurricane Irma heading towards the Florida coast meant oil prices held on to the gains.

The upswing in crude prices marked a swift reversal from last week, when prices had languished in the wake of Hurricane Harvey. The storm knocked out more than 20% of U.S. refining capacity, cutting demand for crude and weighing on prices.
