AdvertisementAt a time when the stock market is on an upswing despite negative cues from global markets, the primary market in India is buzzing too. This week, four companies are launching their initial public offerings (IPOs) to collectively raise over ₹4,600 crore.
DCX Systems, a manufacturer of electronic sub-systems and cable harnesses, launched its public issue on October 31. Global Health, operator of Medanta Hospitals; microfinance lender Fusion Micro Finance; and Bikaji Foods International will launch their public issues this week.
In 2022, about 22 companies launched their IPOs raising over ₹44,000 crore compared to 64 IPOs raising over ₹1 lakh crore in 2021. Last year also saw many large issues like Paytm, Nykaa and Zomato.
After interest rate hikes and other macro concerns like inflation and more, many companies such as Udaan, OYO Rooms and Byjus have either delayed their IPOs or postponed them.
In 2022, Indian benchmark indices have gained more than 2%, outperforming global peers. Domestic investors continue to infuse capital despite outflows by foreign institutional investors (FIIs) and macro concerns.
It has now become crucial for startups to achieve profitability before going public as investors have become very cautious about investing in loss-making startups as seen in the cases of Nykaa, Paytm and Zomato.
“Last year several new public issues did not do well because of high price valuations by several companies. Investors are becoming choosy now after what happened last year, where people lost huge money to IPOs with exorbitant valuations. Comfortable valuation and business visibility are two things investors are looking at before making a decision to invest in an IPO,” Sanjiv Hota, vice president - head of research at Sharekhan, told Business Insider India.
