According to stock market experts, Bharti Hexacom IPO received a strong response from the primary investors despite being 100 percent OFS in nature.

Bharti Hexacom share price outlook

Speaking on Bharti Hexacom share price, Prashanth Tapse, Senior VP — Research at Mehta Equities said, "Despite 100% OFS, Bharti Hexacom listed above street estimates. Healthy listing is justified after receiving a solid response on the last day of its issue biding wherein QIB (48.57x) and NII (10.51x) investors looked more aggressive to grab midcap telecommunication growth story followed by muted retail investors interest who bided only 2.81 times to the allotted quota. Overall it got oversubscribed by 29.87x."

The Mehta Equities expert said that the long-term term investors got a great opportunity to hold mid-cap telecommunications solutions providers and to play long-term India’s telecom structural ARPU growth story. Furthermore, Bharti Hexacom’s anchor book showcases top global investors such as Capital Group, Fidelity, Blackrock, and ADIA participating ahead of the opening of the IPO which gives all other investors more comforts to block money for the long term.

Highlighting the strong fundamentals that may fuel Bharti hexacom shares further, Prathamesh Masdekar, Research Analyst at StoxBox said, "The company enjoys extensive market coverage and penetration, evidenced from its number one position in the highly competitive North-East circle alongside a formidable second position in the Rajasthan circle. Moreover, one of the key focus areas is prudent capital allocation and improving return on capital employed, which is reflected in the capital expenditure on both spectrum and non-spectrum spending. Thus, we remain optimistic on the company’s performance going ahead and advise investors who have received allotment to hold shares from a medium to long term perspective."

"On valuation at CMP 821, it is matching the listed peers and even trading on premium to its parent. Hence, considering all the parameters we recommend allotted investors to “HOLD" the Bharti Hexacom Ltd for a long-term perspective only while those investors who wish to add on the listing days can wait and watch the space post listing performance and accumulate on dips," said Prashanth Tapse of Mehta Equities.
