Computed Price Range of Rs 2000 to Rs 2200 puts it in TOP 3 Market Cap Companies

Life Insurance Corporation of India (LIC) has just filed its 652 Pages Draft Red Herring Prospectus (DRHP)  with SEBI today, Sunday, February 13,2022. It is on track for an IPO in  March 2022

Our Quick First Take is as below :

Equity Rs 6325 Crs comprising of 6,324,997,701 Equity Shares of face Value Rs 10 owned 100% by Government of India
IPO Offer For Sale by Govt 316,245,889 Equity Shares comprising 5% of the Equity
Special Quota LIC Policy Holders 10 % : Employees 5% ~ may offer both at a discount on IPO Price
LIC Embedded Value Rs 5,39,686 crs as on September 30,2021
NAV/Share Rs 12.68 as on September 30,2021 based on relevant Networth of Rs 8020 crs
EPS Rs 2.38 as on September 30,2021 and Rs 4.70 based on March 2021 Earnings after considering enhanced Equity Capital after Bonus Issues on September 8,2021


Computed IPO Price Range is Rs 2000 to Rs 2100

We have worked out an IPO Price Range of Rs 2000 to Rs 2200

This is based on the above offer and the revised FY 22 Disinvestment of Rs 78000 crs of which Rs 12000 crs has been achieved. Thus, implying LIC IPO size should be @ Rs 66000 crs  

At Rs 2200 the Market Capitalisation of LIC is Rs 13,91,500 crs (US $ 186 b taking $=Rs 75)) putting it in the TOP 3 Listed Companies in India .Reliance Industries is the leader at Rs 16,07,858 crs (US $ 214 b) with TCS second currently at Rs 13,67,021 crs (US $ 182 b) as on Friday closing February 11,2022

Total BSE Market Capitalisation at closing on Friday, February 11,2022 was Rs 2,63,89,886 crs        ( US $ 3.5 Trillion). Interestingly LIC value of its Investments in Listed Equity is @ US 140 b or near 4% of the Market Cap

Being the Market Leader, LIC Valuation is obviously much higher than Peer Group on relative Valuations of PE and PBV and is a near 2.6 Multiple of its Embedded Value
