India Pesticides Limited IPO (Initial Public Offering) opened for subscription on 23rd June 2021and it got subscribed 3.79 times on second day of bidding. The public issue is open for subscription till 25th i.e. today only. As the subscription of the issue is going upward, India Pesticides Limited IPO GMP (grey market premium) today also went up and touched 50 after dipping almost 50 per cent on first day of subscription. India Pesticides Limited IPO GMP today is 50, which is 12 up from its previous day's grey market premium. According to market observers, this dip in the share price premium in grey market should not be taken seriously as the fundamentals of the company is important instead of this unofficial grey market.

Speaking on what GMP means for an IPO Avinash Gorakshkar, Head of Research at Profitmart Securities said, "GMP of an IPO is nothing but speculation about the listing gains. It is not an official data and it has nothing to do with the financials of the company. So, those who look at the GMP of a public issue ahead of bidding for the initial offer of the company, they are advised to first look at the financials of the company. In my opinion, one can subscribe India Pesticides Limited IPO for reasonable listing gains as company’s fundamentals are looking positive."

Standing in sync with Avinash Gorakshkar's views; Abhay Doshi, Founder at UnlistedArena.com said, "Grey market premium reflects short-term sentiment while financials of the company reflects long-term fundamentals. So, it's financials of the company that matters the most instead of the GMP of an IPO."

Highlighting upon the financials of India Pesticides Limited; Saurabh Joshi Research Analyst at Marwadi Shares and Finance Ltd. said, "India Pesticides IPO is going to list at P/E of 25.34 with a market cap of 34,088 million whereas its peers namely Dhanuka Agri, UPL Ltd, Rallis India and PI Industries are trading at a P/E of 21.4, 20.4, 31.5, 58.6 respectively. We recommend subscribing this IPO as the company is one of the fastest-growing agrochemical company in India with strong R&D capabilities and a diversified product portfolio. Also, the company is available at reasonable valuations as compared to its peers."

India Pesticides IPO price band has been fixed at 290 to 296.
