IPO Alert: 4 Upcoming SME IPOs to Watch Out This Week

IPO investors were hoping for a better year with more public issues in 2023. So far in 2023, the Indian primary market has seen mixed activity.

In 2023, the mainboard IPO activity has remained quite slow till now. Only 6 companies came out with their offers with a total issue size of Rs 90.2 billion (bn).

During the same period, 48 small & medium enterprises (SMEs) came out with their IPOs and raised a little over Rs 9.5 bn.

SME IPOs capture significant investor attention due to their potential to generate rapid multibagger returns. However, it is crucial to acknowledge that their ascent can be as swift as their descent.

A word of caution

The SME exchange is a relatively recent phenomenon. The BSE SME platform started in March 2012 while the NSE SME IPO platform started later the same year.

Unlike mainline IPOs that are vetted by the market regulator, SME IPOs are managed by exchanges.

While some SME IPOs have experienced massive gains, investors must be cautious and conduct thorough research before investing.

SME IPOs stand at an intersection of high risk and rewards. Hence, an investor must carefully think about his investment horizon and risk appetite before investing in SME IPOs.

Stay tuned to get further updates on this IPO and all upcoming IPOs in the market.

Happy Investing!
