How are shares allocated in IPO?
There are two situations that arise- first is when the total number of successful bids is less than or equal to the number of shares offered by the firm and the other scenario is when the total number of successful bids is more than the number of shares offered by the firm.
With IPOs drawing a huge number of investors, it is important to know that in a situation where the issue gets fully subscribed, investors are allotted the same number of shares that they had bid for. However, in a situation when the issue is oversubscribed, for instance the IPO has been oversubscribed by 20 times and the number of investors has also gone up by 10 times.
In such a scenario, all investors cannot be allocated at least one lot each share as stipulated by the SEBI. In such case, allocation is done through a computerised lottery draw. It is to be noted that because it is an impartial and randomised lottery system, some investors will be lucky to get one lot each, while many others will not be allocated any shares.
