Below, are the key points one must look in general before applying for an IPO:

  • Keep an eye on promoters and top management of the company as they are key assets of the company. Take a close look at promotes and managers who are usually going to take all the decisions of the business.
  • You should also check, there is no corporate governance issue in the company because any negative news could be a red flag and adversely affect the future performance of the company.
  • The investor should also take note of the company’s strength and its positioning in the industry. Likewise, going through the historical financial numbers is also important. It is essential to check if there is a sudden spike or fall in financial performance in the past one year or few quarters just before an IPO.
  • It is important to check the promoter shareholding before and after the IPO. A higher promoter shareholding in the company is always better for minority shareholders.
  • It is also important to understand the utilization of funds raised through the IPO. If the funds will be utilized in the existing business or for an expansion, it will be a good sign of future prosperity.
  • See how the valuation of the company fares as compared to existing companies in the same industry. Relative valuation techniques like Price to earnings ratio, price to book ratio and return on equity, return on capital employed can be used to conclude whether the IPO is available at a discounted price or is expensive as compared to its competitor in the market.
  •  Reading the risk factors is very important. At times there are certain litigations and liabilities, which can be a threat to the company’s future business prospects.

  • Try to fill for the same IPO online from different DP ID i.e. if in your family have more than 1 account you can possibly get the allocation done in case of over subscription.
  • You should have a good knowledge of the sector and the company you are planning to invest.
  • Analysis of the company’s balance sheet is very crucial. A clear understanding of the company’s future projects and vision is very necessary to know whether it will have a sustainable future.
  • Investment decision has to be taken carefully and not in a hurry.
  • Read as much as you can about the company, its objectives for launching the IPO, its past history in business and its futures prospectus.
  • Don’t go for hype in the news, your analysis should be based on facts rather than gossips and rumors.
  • Many IPOs are oversubscribed. What this means is that the demand for shares is much higher than the shares available for sale. In such a situation, it is no surprise that many investors fail to get any shares allotted to them. This is why it is advisable to apply for IPO shares on the last day of bidding. This way, one can have a good estimate on how large the subscription will be. Also, in that case, one should bid for just one lot and not unnecessarily lock up their capital.




Applying for IPO is quite simple, you just need to check with your broker as most of the stock broker in India provide you the platform to apply directly through their portal instead of ASBA process or from bank.

The only thing which should be bothering you is the research you did before applying for the IPO. Investing in IPO is risky as well as profitable.
