HHI's hot debut could be weighed down by foreign selling due to low lockup
Domestic institutions received 35.6 percent or 6,408,700 shares and foreign institutions 19.4 percent or 3,491,000 shares, according to the company’s filing on Tuesday. About 60.3 percent of the holdings by institutions are subject to lock-up obligation.
Lock-up agreement is a contractual constraint that prohibits shareholders from selling their shares for a certain period of time. Companies sign lock-up commitments to win over a popular IPO.
Most market experts expect the company’s opening price would double the IPO price of 60,000 won ($51.25) apiece, given the heat during the IPO process. Its performance from then on is relatively positive since most institutional holdings are held up in lockup.
Hyundai Heavy Industries’ market capitalization would reach 5.3 trillion won based on the IPO price. If it doubles the subscription price, its market cap would surpass that of its parent Korea Shipbuilding & Offshore Engineering (KSOE) worth 8.4 trillion won as of Tuesday.
The IPO price of the country’s biggest shipbuilder was set at 60,000 won per share, the highest end of its desired price range of 52,000 won-60,000 won. The book-building was oversubscribed 1,836.1 times, the second most competitive in Korea’s IPO history after SK IET’s 1,883:1.
