Going forward, FY21E is expected to be the toughest when it comes to raising money through IPOs. Global, as well as the Indian market is in downward trend due to the spread of Coronavirus epidemic. The shutdown of economic activity (lockdown) to curb the disease spread will affect the GDP numbers. The investors are preferring capital protection over risk. This will adversely affect the money inflow in the equity market. Therefore, only those companies that have very robust balance sheets will be preferred by investors.
