Paytm IPO subscription status

After two days of bidding, Paytm IPO has been subscribed 48 per cent. The public issue worth 18,300 crore has been subscribed 123 per cent in the retail category, 46 per cent in the QIB (qualified institutional buyers) category, and 5 per cent in the NII (non-institutional investors) category.

Speaking on the reasons for not so encouraging Paytm IPO subscription status after two days of bidding; Abhay Doshi, Founder at said, "Two foremost reasons I believe are expensive valuations and continuing losses. At upper band, post-issue, sales to market comes around 49 times, which is expensive. Road to profitability also seems challenging which has made investors wary."
