It is among the largest producers of ferroalloys in terms of installed capacity in India, as of February 2021.

As of 31 March 2020, Shyam Metalics was one of the leading players in terms of pellet capacity and the fourth-largest player in the sponge iron industry in terms of sponge iron capacity in India.

Perfect timing

The company has decided to come out with its IPO at a perfect time.

Steel stocks are already in focus and continuing their uptrend with the commodity supercycle being on an upswing.

Also, investors are bullish on the steel sector as it remains exposed to prices globally, which declined significantly in fiscal 2016 impacting realisations and operating profitability.

Steel demand also play a vital role. It is closely related with GDP growth, with the demand to GDP growth multiplier varying across phases.

India is the second-largest producer of steel in the world with a nearly 6% share of global steel production.

What's the ideal IPO strategy to follow?

The excitement surrounding the slew of IPOs in the coming months is huge.

As many as four companies are coming out with their IPOs next week.

These include Shyam Metalics, Sona Comstar, Dodla Dairy, and Krishna Institute of Medical Sciences.

Investors are already euphoric on loss making companies such as Zomato and Paytm.

Smallcap analyst at Equitymaster, Richa Agarwal, recently shares her views on the much-hyped Paytm IPO.

Here's what she wrote...

  • Investing in a company is like owning a piece of business.

    And a loss-making business with no clear road to profits isn't one I would recommend.

    And certainly not at the time of its IPO.
