Meson Valves India Limited, a prominent supplier of valves, actuators, strainers, and remote-control valve systems to industries in both domestic and international markets, made its debut with a stellar premium of 90%, reaching Rs 194 per share on the BSE.
What’s more, it hit the upper circuit after listing, and currently, there are no sellers available despite this remarkable debut. The IPO was listed only on the BSE and not on the NSE.

The company’s primary plan for utilising the proceeds from the new issue is to purchase plant and machinery for the establishment of a manufacturing unit, funding working capital requirements, and addressing general corporate purposes.

Let’s recap the subscription history of the company:

The IPO price range was set at Rs 102 per share, with a face value of Rs 10 per share and a lot size of 1200 shares. The total size of the company’s IPO was Rs 31.09 crore, and the final share issue price was fixed at Rs 102 each.
Following is the financial performance of the company:
|Particulars||FY21 (Rs Lakhs)||FY22 (Rs Lakhs)||FY23 (Rs Lakhs)|
|Net Profit / (Loss)||11.81||212.54||452.43|
The crucial question that arises in everyone’s mind is whether to hold onto the shares or book profits. Considering the current market conditions the broader indices have slipped from their all-time high levels, investors who applied for listing gains have already earned 90% on the listing day alone and can choose to book the profit it has generated.
On the other hand, considering the high demand where there are currently only buyers available and no sellers ready to sell, investors with a higher risk appetite may choose to hold the shares for the medium to long term, which could prove beneficial.
