IPO Snapshot 2020

Though 2020 will be remembered as a gloomy year in the history books due to the spread the COVID 19 pandemic and the suffering the world had faced, it proved to be a stellar year for the companies that raised money through the primary market route and had allayed all fears investors had on equities.

17 companies raised ₹46,128* crore via public offers in 2020

*If we exclude the Yes Bank FPO, the final figure would be ₹31,128 crores.

The year started a bit rough with SBI Cards IPO listing at ₹658, a discount of 12.84% to the issue price of ₹750. However, most of the IPOs that followed (the likes of Route Mobile, Happiest Minds, Chemcon and Burger King) gave bumper returns to investors, barring Angel Broking, UTI AMC and Equitas Small Finance Bank.
