The gray market premium (GMP) of Life Insurance Corp (LIC) shares on Wednesday turned negative ahead of its listing on May 17.

LIC GMP was at Rs 93-95 a share and then it started going downhill. It was trading between Rs 8 and Rs 10 a share on May 5. On May 6 and 10, it was very volatile, with a downward trend, he said. From Rs 8-9 a share, it fell to negative Rs 15 a share on Wednesday, experts said.

The GMP has fallen steadily from its peak amidst concerns of lukewarm response from foreign investors. The IPO was subscribed mostly by retail and domestic institutional buyers. Foreign investor participation was muted. Volatility, sparked by fears of a tightening by global central banks following higher inflation, also worried investors.

Currently, LIC shares are being traded at a discount in the gray market (unlisted market), may be impacted by the nervousness lingering in the equity market. The benchmark indices as well as broader markets corrected in double digits in more than one month as investors could be looking more worried about earnings and economic growth amid rising inflation concerns.

Before the opening of public issue, it was trading at a premium of Rs 95 in the gray market premium, indicating about 10 percent upside, as per IPO Watch.
