My view

The Union bank faces the huge stress to allot the shares with complication of these categories and these much of oversubscription. But mostly the other investor categories are fairly affect because of the

CategoryNumber of shares allotted as per ProspectusNumber of shares appliedNumber of times over subscribed
Category A1,500,0001,886,7001.2578
Category B2,250,000483,020,800214.6759
Category c11,250,0004,689,777,500416.8691
Total 15,000,000 5,174,685,000 344.9790

As I see from the Application, I feel Union bank of Colombo Limited Over subscribe by the 344.9790 times.

This may be the historical event in the Colombo Stock exchange to over subscribe as a 345 times.

Mostly the other investors are subscribing more than the employees or the customers. By see the above ratio I doubt that the Employee of Union bank of Colombo limited may feels it’s not a good investment or they don’t like to be part in the IPO process. That’s may be the reason for not subscribing UBC IPO.

As usual it’s used to over subscribe by the other investors; who are mostly expecting to gain capital benefits in the initial days and long term gains.
