Govt sources to CNBC-TV18: LIC IPO mop-up was not factored in FY23 divestment budget estimate. FY23 divestment aim will rise to Rs 86,000 crore from Rs 65,000 crore after LIC IPO.
Yash Gupta- Equity Research Analyst, Angel One on LIC IPO:
The much-awaited LIC IPO will be opening for subscription on the 4th of May at a price band of Rs. 902-949 per share. Retail investors and policyholders will get some more benefits for applying for the IPO, company has fixed the discount of Rs 45 for retail investors and ₹60 for policyholders. So the effective price for retail investors will be Rs 904 and for policyholders, it will be Rs 889.
At the offer band, the LOC IPO is valued at a Price/Embedded value of 1.06-1.1 its Sep’21 EV of Rs 539,686 crore which is at a significant discount to listed private life insurance companies which trade at P/EV of 2.5-3.9x their Dec’21 EV. While HDFC Life Insurance is trading at a P/EV of 3.9x SBI Life and ICICI Pru Life trade at 3.2x and 2.5x their Dec’21 embedded value.
While LIC valuations appear to be cheap as compared to listed private players investors need to keep in mind that LIC has a lower VBN margin of 9.9% in FY2021 as compared to private players who have VNB margins of 22-27% due to higher share of participation & group product. Despite lower margins and inferior business mix, we believe that the IPO is being priced reasonably and offers value to investors with a long-term view.
