Like the month of January, even February was a tepid month for IPOs, with most of the companies preferring to remain in the side lines despite SEBI having approves their DRHPs. With 2 full months of the new year gone, the year 2022 has been a major disappointment so far with just a handful of IPOs completed during the current year. In contrast, year 2021 saw 65 IPOs raising over Rs.1.31 trillion with 64 of these issues getting oversubscribed. There are big targets for FY23, but the start has been very tepid. Let us turn to what March 2022 holds in store for the Indian IPO market.

How will IPOs pan out in March 2022?

Year 2022 will be the year when the LIC IPO will have its tryst with capital markets and the Finance Minister has confirmed in the Union Budget discussion that the LIC IPO will happen affirmatively in March 2022. A large number of IPOs are all set but most of the companies are likely to wait till the LIC IPO is completed as it is likely to result in sucking out a considerable amount of liquidity from the IPO markets.
