Wigton attracts over 30,000 applicants

Wigton IPO prospectus is out.

Wigton Windfarm’s recent IPO is said to successfully attracted more than 30,000 applications, for the 11 billion shares that were offered at 50 cents each, IC insider.com has been advised.
IC Insider.com gathers that the number could reach as much as 32,000 applications and is more than 100 percent oversubscribed. The number of applicants, suggest that the level of oversubscriptions is most likely lead to the issue being twice oversubscribed. Based on the formula announced for allocation that will see smaller applications getting full allocation, the top bidders are likely to be disappointed with what they end up getting that could see their take coming for 10 percent or less, depending on the amount applied for.
According to a release from Mayberry Investments lead brokers, “all Applicants (large or small) up to the first 10,000 shares will be met. Applicants in excess of 10,000 will then be met in similar fashion in increments of 10,000 until all applications are met or all shares are allocated”.
The number of applications seem to be close to the issue of National Commercial Bank in 1987 that attracted over 30,000 applications, with the issue being oversubscribed by 175 percent.
The oversubscription should result in a healthy liquid market, when the stock starts trading in a few weeks time.
