Polycab India Limited manufactures in the business of selling wires & cables, fast-moving electrical goods, and into Engineering, Procurement, and Construction (EPC). In EPC business Polycab undertakes power distribution and rural electrification projects. As per Financial Year 2018, the company is a market leader by holding approx. 19% market share of wires & cables industry in India in FY18. It has exported its products around 40 countries and thus contributing 5.14% of the total fiscal revenue. By focusing on all of these I personally feels it is worth subscribing.

Polycab IPO got a warm and overwhelming response, as it has not only over-subscribed but also creates record over-subscription. The IPO is clearly worthy of investment. You will be shocked to know that as per data available with exchanges, Rs 1,345-crore issue was oversubscribed 52 times. If anchor investors’ part is to be removed, then to the IPO had received a bid for 91.59 crore equity shares against the issue size of 1.76 crore shares.

Qualified Institutional Buyers (QIBs) had oversubscribed 92 times while non-institutional investors had subscribed 110 times. The retail investors’ section is also over-subscribed by 4 times.
