How do we expect it to perform?

According to recent reports, 75% of IPOs listed in 2022 are expected to be profitable by the end of the year. Adani Wilmar is the best-performing IPO, trading at around 174 points above its issue price, while ASG Transact has seen its stock price fall by 57%.

As the year comes to a close, four companies have already entered the market: Sula Vineyards, Abans Holdings, Landmark Cars, and KFin Technologies (the fourth of December). In the grey market, they are currently trading at a 5-10% premium.

Around 37 companies announced IPO plans worth more than Rs 58,500 crore in 2022. So far, approximately 33 firms have listed on exchanges and are performing significantly better than the market in the first year.

We expect it to have a good start, just like the other three of December month.
