Ahead of the listing, Adani Wilmar IPO grey premium has stayed stable at INR25 per share. Although it is down from last month’s levels of INR100 per share, it is still positive and has not shown signs of panic among grey market buyers. Meanwhile, wider markets have been extremely volatile thereby impacting grey premiums across the board.

The informal market witnessed heightened activity on 20 January 2022 when Adani Wilmar’s kostak rate peaked to INR900. From that level, it has exactly halved and similar has been the case for subject to sauda rates.
