IPO or Initial Public Offering refers to the process wherein a private corporation offers shares to the general public in a new stock issuance. By making the company public, it enables corporations to not only raise capital but also generate publicity.

Before we get started, let’s discuss what is Shareholding Quota or Shareholder’s Reservation Portion. When a subsidiary company releases its IPO, it reserves some shares that are made available as an offering under the shareholding quota of the parent company. Normally, depending on the size of the IPO, 5 to 15 percent of the shares are reserved for this purpose. Shareholder’s Quota is a reserved category and eligible investors need to apply under this category.

  1. 1. Why one should make use of shareholding quota?

    When a company keeps some stocks reserved under the shareholding quota, investors who hold at least one share also come under this quota and they can take advantage of this category. Usually, subscription under shareholding quota is much lower than other categories such as retail.

    The second benefit is that when the IPO of a subsidiary company is announced, you can apply through 2 separate applications – one under retail category with a capping up to Rs. 2 Lakhs and the other under the shareholding category with a capping up to Rs 2 Lakhs. Applications under both categories will be considered valid. So in such a case, you have a better chance of allotment when the subscription goes above the required limit.

    Lastly, companies usually offer special discounts under shareholding quota. In such a case, you will get some special benefits when you get allotment under the shareholding quota.
