Related terms of upcoming IPOs

Here are some key terms related to Initial Public Offerings (IPOs), along with explanations:

  1. Abridged prospectus: A condensed version of the main IPO prospectus that includes basic features of the IPO issue. It is required for companies filing for an IPO to attach the abridged prospectus with the application form under relevant regulations.
  2. Draft Red Herring Prospectus (DRHP): An offer document issued by the company with regulatory authorities before the IPO process begins. It provides comprehensive information about the company's objectives for the issue, as well as operational and financial details.
  3. Anchor investors: Institutional buyers, such as banks, financial institutions, and mutual funds, who apply for shares worth a substantial amount (usually Rs 10 crores or more) within the Qualified Institutional Buyer (QIB) category. A portion of the IPO issue size is reserved for anchor investors.
  4. Stockbroker: Entities that act as intermediaries allowing investors to buy and sell shares or apply for IPOs. They facilitate investment services and trading processes, including account opening.
  5. Bid lot: The minimum number of shares an investor must apply for in an IPO, is determined by the company. Investors can apply for multiple lots.
  6. Fixed price/book building: Methods through which a company can issue an IPO. Under the fixed price method, the company announces a specific price for its IPO beforehand. In the book building method, a price range is set, and the final price is determined based on investor demand.
  7. Floor price: The minimum bid price that an investor can choose while applying for an IPO. It represents the lower limit of the price band set by the company.
  8. Issue price: The price at which shares are finally allotted to applicants after the IPO issue closes. The issue price may vary for different investor categories.
  9. Cut off price: The lowest price at which shares are allotted to investors, typically reserved for retail investors. If an investor bids higher than the cut-off price, the excess amount is refunded.
  10. Oversubscribed/undersubscribed: If the number of applications received for an IPO exceeds the offered shares, the issue is oversubscribed. Conversely, if the number of applications is lower than the offered shares, the issue is undersubscribed.

Understanding these key terms is crucial for investors interested in participating in IPOs and navigating the complexities of the IPO process.

What are upcoming IPOs?

As we step into 2024, the Indian market continues its growth trajectory, particularly in the realm of initial public offerings (IPOs).

An Initial Public Offering (IPO) occurs when a private company offers its shares to the public for the first time on a stock exchange. This process enables companies to raise capital for various purposes such as acquisitions, expansion, or debt repayment. Upcoming IPOs refer to companies that have already filed their Draft Red Herring Prospectus (DRHP) with the Securities and Exchange Board of India (SEBI) and are preparing to launch their IPOs in the coming month or so.

Staying informed about these upcoming offerings is crucial for investors to plan their IPO investments effectively and make well-informed decisions. It is advisable for potential investors to thoroughly review the DRHP of any upcoming IPO they are interested in, as this official document contains comprehensive details about the company and its offering.

Who can invest in the upcoming IPO in March 2024?

The capital markets regulator, SEBI, has delineated four distinct categories of investors eligible to participate in IPOs:

  • Retail Investors: Retail investors can invest up to Rs. 2 lakh in any new IPO. Companies are mandated to allocate a minimum of 35% of the shares for retail investors.
  • Anchor Investors: These are qualified institutional investors (QIIs) with assets exceeding Rs. 10 crore, who can purchase up to 60% of the shares reserved for QIIs in upcoming IPOs.
  • Qualified Institutional Investors (QIIs): Institutional investors, including mutual funds, public institutions, commercial banks, and registered foreign portfolio investors (FPIs) with SEBI, are eligible to invest in IPOs. They must sign contracts with a lock-in period of 90 days.
  • Non-Institutional Investors (NIIs) or High Net Worth Individuals (HNIs): High-net-worth individuals can invest between Rs. 2 lakh and Rs. 5 lakh in an IPO. Non-institutional investors can invest more than Rs. 2 lakh in an IPO if they choose to do so.
