IPOs Revitalized once again?

Sep 2, 2000

The Initial Public Offering market is set to heat up this month with more than 11 issues slated to hit the market. The total sum to be raised from these issues amounts to Rs 14 bn. This includes bond issue from ICICI limited; Rights issue from Ceat Financial Services and Book Building issues from Pritish Nandy, MRO-TEK, Tips Industries and Creative Eye Limited.

Total 14,344

These companies (Creative Eye, MRO-TEK, and Tips) postponed their issue plans due to depressed sentiment and poor response to some of the previous issues like SIP Technology and Arraycom. In fact, these two companies reimbursed application money.

Why is there a sudden improvement in sentiment? The main reason for this could be attributed to public issue of Hughes Tele.com, which has come out with a book building issue to raise Rs 7 bn at a floor price of Rs 12 per share. This has triggered sentiment in primary market, which has been witnessing a series of issues from small software companies.

The IPO market may further heat up if the public issue from Hughes Tele.com goes through successfully. This may add spark to the primary markets, which has been showing lacklustre performance for the past six months.
