IPO
by 5paisa Research Team Last Updated: Mar 29, 2022, 02:19 PM IST

Like the months of January and February, even March 2022 was a tepid month for IPOs. With LIC opting to put off its IPO to the next fiscal on account of the uncertainty created by the Russia Ukraine war and rising oil prices, most other IPOs opted to remain in the side lines.

However, towards the end of March, a slew of issues like the Ruchi Soya FPO, Uma Exports IPO, Veranda Learning and Hariom Pipes have hit the IPO market, just before the close of FY22.

Interestingly, SEBI has shown a lot of alacrity in approving the DRHPs filed, but companies have been slow to announce IPO plans. The companies are clearly waiting for more details on variables like the timing of the LIC IPO, the retail appetite, impact of higher oil prices, the risk of IPO bunching etc.  

This is in stark contrast to calendar year 2021 which saw 65 IPOs raising more than Rs.1.31 trillion with 64 of these issues getting oversubscribed. There are very aggressive targets for FY23, but the start has been very tepid. There is obviously a lot of work left to be done in the next few months to catch up for the late start in 2022.

How will IPOs pan out in April 2022?


LIC IPO getting postponed to FY22 will be a disappointment for the IPO markets, which was expecting the LIC IPO to actually trigger positive action in the markets. Now LIC has time till 12th May to come out with its IPO without seeking fresh actuarial valuations.

A large number of IPOs are all set to hit the IPO markets but will await greater clarity on the LIC IPO. You can see a comprehensive line-up of marquee companies in the IPO list below. Most companies are likely to wait till the LIC IPO is completed as it is likely to suck out a considerable amount of liquidity from the IPO markets.

Here is a quick summary of companies expected to hit the IPO market in the month of April / May 2022, although the dates and the price bands are yet to be announced. The below list is only an indicative list as of now.

Life Insurance Corporation (LIC)

The LIC IPO will entirely be an offer sale wherein the government will hive off 5% of its stake or nearly 3.2 crore shares to the public. The size of the issue is about Rs.66,000 crore and the price band and dates are yet to be announced. LIC was originally expected to open the IPO around the 11-Mar to be able to list the IPO in FY22 itself.

However, a mix of aggressive FPI selling, Fed hawkishness, oil price spike and the Russia Ukraine war put paid to these hopes. The IPO worth Rs.66,000 crore will now happen only in FY23. The company has reserved 10% of the issue size for policyholders.
