IPO gradingmandated by Sebi from May 2007was expected to provide investors with an easy-to-interpret objective assessment of every IPO It was touted as a unique certification to safeguard retail investors from the perils of IPOs and boost IPO pricing efficiency The grade was expected to reflect on five factors relating to issuer fundamentals industry prospectsfinancial positionmanagement qualityrisks and prospects of new projectsand its regulatory compliance This led to higher gradesexpectedlyfor the largerrelatively low-levered and profitable issuers We found there is evidence of relatively strong demand for high-graded IPOs and relatively weak demand for low-graded IPOs While it may be tempting to support IPO grading on the evidence of grades consistent with the firm fundamentals impacting the demand patternthese are insufficient to prove any significant gains from its introduction Ratherthe real test for IPO grading is its ability to improve pricing efficiency and offer protection for investors wealth If grading helps the retail segment to make more informed IPO investmentssuch a role would mirror in their bidding behaviour A positive influence could be granted if more retail investors aided by the IPO grade put in their bids with a price indication Still better if retail investors are able to sharply distinguish future performers from their poor cousins at the IPO stage itself Our findings from a recent study of the IPO grades suggest the following Firstthe proportion of retail investors bidding for IPOs without a price indication is no different between graded and ungraded IPOs About 62 per cent of retail investors continue to bid at the cut-off price Secondtheir share of investments in poorly performing IPOs remains the same as before These findings suggest that the retail does not display a sharper IPO picking skill owing to IPO grading The role of grading on its stiffer test pricing efficiency is also doubtful Pricing efficiency is popularly measured as the discount offered in the issue price relative to its price on listing Grading was expected to put more information into the hands of investors in a ready-to-use format This would lead to a stronger agreement between the issuer and investors on the pricethereby reducing the need for heavy discounts on IPOs Furthera riskier or fundamentally weak IPOas indicated by a lower grademay be priced at a greater discount to compensate for its incremental risk Our findings are as follows Firstthe graded issueswhich are expected to have lower information problemsdo not have lower discounts as compared to ungraded issues Secondhigh-graded issues do not enjoy lower discounts relative to their low-graded counterparts It appears that high graded issueswhich experience stronger demandleave more money on the table by way of discounting Furtherif grading acts as a certification for underlying issuer qualitythis role would be more evident in the case of small firms and those from the nascent industriesas these firms could suffer from greater information problems in the market Againthere is no evidence of a significant role It is common to argue that irrational investor demand is behind the price pop In the face of the irrational demand argumenta key test for the role of IPO grading is whether grading helps rational investors to better prevail over the irrationals Unfortunatelywe find little evidence of this This insignificant role of grading on IPO pricing suggests that grading has not performed its expected role as an easy-to-use certification of issue quality It is evident that effective and reliable IPO grading is tough due to the residual nature of equity cash flows Inherently volatile cash flows leave IPO grading without a reliable benchmarkunlike in the case of credit ratings This presents two inter-related problems Firstan objective grading that encompasses the issue pricing is hard to achieve Without a comment on the issue priceIPO grading has little relevance in the Indian market Secondthe tractability of IPO grading becomes weak Whereas the failure of credit rating can be easily spotted by defaultspost-issue IPO performance is not easy to judgedue to the volatile nature of equity This makes it difficult to ascertain the veracity of IPO gradesand poor grading may not cause much reputational damage to the agencies The lack of tractability may not sufficiently incentivise them to objectively assign the grades There are wider questions on the conflicts of interest involved with an issuer-pay modelwhich are also reported to surround credit ratings The writers teach at IIM-Ahmedabad For all the latest Opinion News download Indian Express App More Related NewsWritten by TABASSUM BARNAGARWALA | Mumbai |
