  2. E-com industry size was INR 713 bn. In FY14 in FY19 it reaches to INR 3000+ bn and expected to cross INR 9000 bn by FY24. Since Most of the E com companies started accepting Cards payment in COD (cash on delivery) Cards spends likely to be increased.

SBI Credit Card IPO Risk Factors

Although, owing to digitalization, competition from prepaid instruments such as e-wallets and UPI service is rising though they are mainly used for small transactions and do not offer credit period or benefit of reward points unlike credit cards.

And SBI Cards has adopted technologies to offer virtual cards on various mobile platforms thereby improving its appeal to tech savvy young generation. Economic slowdown affecting discretionary spend is another major risk. However, so far, the company has not experienced any slowdown in either card issuance or card spending.

Annual Card Spending in India Slowing Down

Yet only about 5% of Indians’ consumption per capita takes place through credit cards. After growing 12% annually over four years, average spending per card is stalling. While a slowdown is only to be expected given a sharp decline in economic momentum, the reason has more to do with the merchant than the spender.

Presently there is a cap on interchange fees on debit card any regulation on limiting interchange fees on credit card will adversely affect the performance of the company. Presently 21% of the total revenue comes from Interchange fees.

More than half of the income comes from interest on outstanding ( Revolving and EMI loan) any Regulatory change capping the interest rate will adversely affect the company. And slowdown in economy especially BPO and IT space leads to bulk of default. Earlier Barclays has shut down their credit card business due to economic slowdown, as most of credit card customers are working in private sectors with risk of job loss.

Analysts View on SBI Card IPO

As per the best stock broker in India and most of the securities firms remains positive on this IPO, citing many factors: Low free-float, first credit cards/payments company to get listed (only proxy to the fast-growing digital payments space), the company is the second largest credit card issuer with 18% market share in cards outstanding and spends and demonstrated faster business growth than industry.

It has diversified customer acquisition capabilities, advanced risk management and data analytics capabilities with modern and scalable technology infrastructure to analyze the industry growth, scope and other scenario timely.

5 Tricks & Tips for IPO Allotment

Tricks & Tips for IPO Allotment

#1 Fill the Correct Details in the Form

The first criterion of rejecting the IPO applications is incomplete or mismatch information provided in the form. So make sure while filling the IPO application form fill all the details like your name, PAN & Demat Number, etc. to become eligible. 

#2 Apply with Multiple Demat Accounts

You cannot apply multiple applications in an IPO using the same PAN number, if you do this, your first application could be also rejected. But you can open multiple demat accounts in the name of your family members and friends. 

Yes, applying through multiple accounts increases the change of allotment significantly in case of oversubscribed IPO. For example, if an IPO is oversubscribed 5 times, your chances of getting the allotment are 20%. But if you apply in the IPO using 5 family members’ names, there is a high chance that you will get an allotment in any of the applications.

#3 Always Bid at Cut-off Price

IPOs offered with the book building process have price bands and you have to bid for either bid for upper band limit or opt for cut-off price. If you bid at a lower bid price your application could be rejected or would be not eligible for the allotment.

#4 Avoid Last Moment Subscription

Some investors wait for the subscription levels in HNI, QIB and retail categories before placing their bids. If the response is good then they are placing their bids on the last day. But if you are going to apply it on the last day but it might cause few issues like your bank account or net banking is not responding due to HNI and QIB high subscription.

#5 Buy Shares of Parent Company

Yes, this trick could be also workable if the IPO issuing company’s parent or holding company is already listed and giving a reservation to existing shareholders. If you have a few even single shares of a parenting company you would be eligible to apply for IPO and sometimes IPOs are offered at a discounted price to existing shareholders.

Reason for Not Getting IPO Allotment:

  1. Your application was not considered as valid i.e. invalid PAN No. or invalid Demat account number or multiple applications submitted from the same name.
  2. Your name was not selected in the lucky draw for allocation of shares (in case of huge over-subscription).

Let me tell you one thing, in oversubscribed IPOs, it is not confirmed that you will get the allotment of shares. As there are different types of allotment criteria, few of them follow the lucky draw and few companies go through the Pro-rata basis to make sure every investor can assuredly get the same amount share into their Demat account.   

In fact, luck draw is the most common reason and applied to 90% of the applicants for not getting shares. In all good IPO’s, due to oversubscription, the lucky draw process is followed and all investors don’t get allotment or get full allotment.
