New Delhi: The initial public offer (IPO) of IRB InvIT Fund was subscribed 62% on the second day of the three-day bidding process on Thursday.

The offer received bids for more than 15.5 crore shares against the total issue size of over 25 crore shares, as per NSE’s data. Institutional Investors’ portion was subscribed 49% and other investors 77%. IRB InvIT Fund on Tuesday raised around Rs2,100 crore from anchor investors. The IPO, the first in the InvIT space, will close on Friday. It has a price band of Rs100-102.

InvITs or infrastructure investment trusts are those debt instruments that will be traded in the market and can act as investment vehicles for sponsors. The listing of instruments will enable promoters of infrastructure to monetise completed assets and raise funds for other long-term projects.

IRB’s InvIT fund comprises fresh issue of units aggregating Rs4,300 crore and an offer-for-sale of nearly 3.48 crore units by IRB Infra Developers and its arms—Modern Road Makers, Aryan Toll Road, ATR Infra and Ideal Road Builders. The InvIT trust has six operational road assets and the proceeds from the IPO will be utilised mostly to repay the debt of its special purpose vehicles (SPVs) created for the toll-road projects. As per InvIT regulation, the sponsor will hold 15% units for initial three years. IDFC Bank, Credit Suisse Securities and ICICI Securities are the lead managers to the issue while Karvy Computershare is the register to the issue.

The units are proposed to be listed on the BSE and the National Stock Exchange (NSE).
