Avenue Supermarts Eyeing Five-fold Growth

Billionaire Radhakishan Damani's discount supermarket chain Avenue Supermarts plans to boost its store count fivefold.

Avenue Supermarts, which currently runs the fourth-largest number of convenience stores in India, could scale up the DMart chain 1,500 supermarkets from 284 at present, the company's CEO Neville Noronha said in an interview.

The sky's the limit for any brick-and-mortar retailer in the country.

You have to focus on opening more and more stores as the organized grocery market in India was nowhere near saturation.

Noronha said rising inflation would be a boost for the discount chain.

The company opened its highest-ever 50 stores in the year through March.

Foreign Investors Come Back Running

Foreign portfolio investors (FPIs) have invested Rs 224.5 bn in August 2022 so far in Indian markets amid falling crude oil prices and receding fears of inflation.

FIIs were big sellers till June 2022 but the scenario changed starting July 2022.

Since 1 July so far, FIIs have invested close to US$3.5 bn, the highest among emerging markets excluding China, according to Bloomberg.

Between October 2021 and June 2022, FIIs pulled out Rs 2.6 tn from Indian markets as high inflation and rising interest rates in developed nations prompted global investors to prune exposure to commodity-consuming nations.

New IPO Next Week

India's largest aggregator of airport lounge services Dreamfolks Services' initial public offering (IPO) is expected to open for subscription next week on 24 August. The IPO will close on 26 August.

The anchor portion for the IPO will open for bidders a day prior on 23 August.

Dreamfolks Services is India's largest airport service aggregator platform, powering an enhanced airport experience via technology.

Dreamfolks has also bagged contracts from Indian Railways to offer similar services at stations.

The company was looking at an IPO size of Rs 10-12 bn but now has cut its offer for sale (OFS) to 17.2 m shares from 21.8 m shares, planned earlier.

Through the IPO, the promoters will be looking to sell shares. The public issue consists of up to 65 lakh shares each of Mukesh Yadav and Dinesh Nagpal and up to 40 lakh shares owned by Liberatha Peter Kallat.

Note that market volatility is easing, and companies are back with their preliminary papers and have filed for their IPOs.

Syrma SGS Tech IPO closed yesterday, and it received a decent subscription as retail investors took charge.

If you wish to invest in any of the upcoming IPOs, be very clear about your strategy and expectations.

In a bull market, you can invest with the expectation of a listing gain and exit on the listing day. Of course, this strategy is quite risky as even in a bullish market, not all IPOs give a listing return.

The other more traditional strategy is to come in for the long term after studying the company, management, governance, financial, comparison with listed peers etc.
