Mobile marketing firm Affle India’s IPO was subscribed 87 times. The 3.4-million share offering saw bids for 292 million shares. Most of the bids came from institutional inv­estors and high networth individuals. The price band for the issue was Rs 740-745 per share. At the top end, Affle India will have a post-issue market cap of Rs 1,900 crore. At Rs 745, the issue was priced at 39 times its FY19 consolidated earnings.
