Tata Technologies, marking the first initial public offering (IPO) from the Tata Group in nearly two decades, is poised for its stock market debut on Dalal Street this Thursday, November 30. The company’s stock has already generated significant buzz in the grey market, where it’s trading at a premium of ₹420, indicating a potential listing price of ₹920, far above the issue price of ₹500.

The grey market, an informal trading platform, often serves as a barometer for IPO performance, providing early indications of the listing price. Market analysts are predicting a strong debut for Tata Technologies, expecting over 75% gains, buoyed by strong subscription demand and attractive pricing strategies.

Experts like Prashanth Tapse, Senior VP of Research at Mehta Equities, foresee a potential doubling in Tata Technologies’ post-listing value. Tapse attributes this optimism to the Tata brand’s strong investor appeal and the company’s unique, profitable global business model, which is well-positioned to capitalize on the growing outsourcing market.

Prathamesh Masdekar, a research analyst at StoxBox, echoed similar sentiments, emphasizing the strong business model of Tata Technologies and its remarkable subscription rate, which exceeded 69 times the offer. This overwhelming response sets the stage for an expected 80% premium over its initial offering price at listing.
