Promoter Kumar Mangalam Birla, who's a Chairman of the multinational Aditya Birla Group, said during the listing ceremony that the emphatic oversubscription of the view, with the overall book being subscribed to seven times and the institutional book being subscribed to 19 times, demonstrates the tremendous potential of the India digital story and Vodafone's role in it. It is encouraging to see strong participation from both domestic and foreign investors. Notably, it is extremely impressive that the retail component was fully subscribed to.

Birla said that the Aditya Birla group had along side Vodafone Group invested 170,000 crore in the Indian telecom industry. Before this IPO, over the last 5 years, out of 30,000 crore raised by the company, more than 75% has come from the 2 promoter groups," Birla said.

The proceeds from the fundraise are earmarked for a significant capex. "This growth capex will pave the way for a network and technological upgrade," Birla said.

The group put in 2,500 crore in the FPO. Birla hoped that the fundraise would usher in “vodafone idea 2.0" and help Vodafone Idea “stage a smart comeback". Following this fundraise, Vodafone is also in talks to raise around 25,000 crore debt from banks.

Here's what expert says

Vodafone Idea's FPO listing at about 12 is a slight rise from the issue price, but it represents early selling pressure for quick profits, said Shivani Nyati, Head of Wealth, Swastika Investmart.

Given the company's potential for recovery, a decline below 11 appears improbable. After this early volatility, encouraging signals and prospective tariff increases following the election may spur more purchases. Investors that are aggressive and have a long-term perspective may choose to hang onto the stock in anticipation of a future increase to about 18, advised Nyati.
