But due to the value of falling shares in the grey market, it was already being speculated to be listed at a discount. The same happened, on Tuesday, the company's shares were listed on BSE-NSE with a fall of more than eight percent. This fall has dealt a big blow to the investors.



Market capitalization has fallen so much


According to a report, within minutes of its listing on the stock market, the company's investors lost assets of over Rs 42,500 crore as its market capitalization came down to Rs 5.57 lakh crore in early trade as a result of the weak listing. The market capitalization at the issue price was more than Rs.6 lakh crore. The stock garnered a market capitalization of Rs 5,57,675.05 crore as against Rs 6,00,242 crore at the issue price in the initial round.



LIC's stock got listed so broken

Long term investment beneficial


LIC's shares may have had a weak listing in the market and it broke the expectations of investors, but despite this, market experts are calling it a profitable deal.
