Why LIC Share Price Is Falling?

Life Insurance Corporation (LIC) IPO was one of the biggest IPO in the country and generated the highest ever response from the retailers. However, after its listing, the IPO did not turn out to be a hit. Even on the listing day, LIC lost Rs. 46,500 crore value and its market cap fell nearly 8%. The share price of LIC is now trading near the lowest value from its IPO price of Rs. 949.

The question that is in everyone’s head is why the stock price falling continuously. The main reason why $2.7$ billion is a flop is that the central banks across the globe have started raising interest rates to battle the rising inflation pressure. This had led to pressure on the stock and it has curbed its demand.

Another reason that added pressure to the stock price of LIC is selling by anchor investors. The anchor investors who were holding 59.3 million shares have shed their holdings. Anchor investors are the institutional investors who have been allotted shares before the IPO opens for the subscription. This massive selling of LIC stock by the anchor investors has shaken the confidence of retail investors and therefore, the stock continuously faces selling pressure.

What added fuel to the fire was the weak quarterly numbers by LIC. Shares of the company further fell when it posted a 17% YoY decline in its consolidated net profit at Rs. 2,410 crore for the March 2022 quarter. In the same quarter a year ago the company had earned a profit of Rs. 2,920 crore. However, the company reported a rise in the net premium income by 17.9% YoY at Rs. 1.4 lakh crore from Rs. 1.2 lakh crore in the corresponding quarter last year. The income of the company from investments remained flat at Rs. 67,800 crore in comparison to Rs. 67,700 crore in March 2021 quarter.
