Upcoming IPOs – Introduction

Investing in IPOs has become a quick way to jump your investment returns in a pretty quick time in the recent past. Talking about ground reality or the performance, IPO or Initial Public Offerings in India saw a bumper feast in the year 2017 wherein 100+ IPOs were launched throughout the year across different industries.

There were IPOs such as Avenue Supermarts that are trading at 210% of their listing price, D-mart at 284% of their listing price and so on.

2018 stayed fairly good as well, although in the second half of the year a lot of companies decided to delay their IPO launch plans and pushed them to 2019.

If you are somebody who is looking to invest in any of the upcoming IPOs, you need to open a Demat account with a stockbroker in India. In order to learn about the complete process of IPO application, you can check this review on How to Apply for IPO through ASBA.

The business is looking to cross the target of $650 Million and is running multiple businesses across White Oils, Industrial Oils, Automotive oils, Industrial fuels etc to achieve that target.

The business has running subsidiaries across Singapore and Dubai (UAE) as well apart from its operations in India.

This is one of the Upcoming IPOs that you must keep an eye open since it comes from an industry that has a huge potential in the next few years in India.

Laqshya Media Limited IPO

Industry – Media

Status – To be Announced

Founded by Mr Alok Jalan in 1997, Laqshya Media Group is one of the largest Independent Marketing communications networks in India. The network has over 250 employees across 25 offices and has its footprint spread significantly in the UAE as well.

Coming with one of those upcoming IPOs soon, the firm provides services in different advertising fragments including Experimental marketing, mainline advertising, mainstream digital marketing etc. It is interesting to see such a media group coming out and raising capital from the general public. However, some seasoned traders might want to play wait-and-watch-game on how this pans out.

Although the numbers are still to be put out yet, there has not much of an excitement seen in the investor community seeing this company as part of the Upcoming IPOs cohort.

Prince Pipes and Fittings IPO

Industry – Piping

Status – To be Announced

With its corporate office in Mumbai and manufacturing plants in different parts of India including Silvassa, Uttarakhand, Maharashtra and Tamil Nadu – Price Pipes and fittings provide multiple solutions for plumbing, irrigation and sewerage services.

The company claims to be growing at a CAGR (Cumulative Annual Growth Rate) of 40% in the last 4 years which is a reasonable growth even if a peer comparison in the industry is performed.

Again, the business comes from a very niche segment and certainly has a following that backs this IPO listing.

Genesis Colors limited IPO

Industry – Luxury

Status – To be Announced

Genesis Colors Limited comes from the holding companies namely Satya Paul and Bwitch, that has been around for a while. The group also brings a range of premium designer labels for its users on a regular basis through some of their exclusive distribution rights.

Some of such exclusive brands include Paul Smith, Bottega Veneta, Jimmy Choo, Armani etc. At the same time, the brand runs a few joint ventures with names such as Burberry, Canali, Villeroy & Boch etc.

Thus, from an industry rapport perspective, Genesis Colors limited has been taking few extravagant steps and certainly improving its brand equity along the way.

This Gurgaon based company has a workforce of around 500 and has seen gradual improvements in its numbers over the past few years.

Have you heard of these different brands? If yes, we are pretty sure you are looking forward to this listing as part of the Upcoming IPOs in India.


Industry – Finance

Status – Launched

When it comes to raising capital, well ICICI Securities is one of those companies that help other businesses to launch their respective IPOs. And it going to be only fair to assume that when they come out to launch their own IPO, it is going to be a mammoth affair.

This is easily one of those upcoming IPOs we are eyeing forward to.

National Insurance Company IPO

Industry – Insurance

Status – To be Announced

National Insurance Company or NIC is the oldest general insurance company in India and runs operations in around 1500 offices all over India through its workforce of around 15,000 employees.

They may look at a disinvestment of 15% stake that could fetch them a capital in the range of ₹3,500 Crore Plus.

The business is looking to raise capital through an initial public offering in the recent future and has a strong backing of its profitable numbers in recent years. With Insurance industry seeing a reasonable growth in the recent past, the timing of the IPO could not have been better.

This listing was an active part of the Upcoming IPOs list, however, the IPO launch plans have been postponed till further communication.

The firm has been consistently profitable and with increased manufacturing eco-system created in India (with initiatives such as Make-in-India), Seaways sees a reasonable room for growth in the future. With this IPO in their plans, the company’s capacity to grow has high chances of improvement.

The logistics industry has already been seeing a reasonable push through different government policies and this launch is being seen as one of the top Upcoming IPOs in India.

Hindustan Aeronautics Ltd IPO

Industry – Aviation

Status – Launched

Hindustan Aeronautics Limited or HAL was established back in the year 1940 and is owned by the government of India. HAL carries multiple operations including manufacturing and assembly of aircraft, navigation and related communication equipment and airports operation.

Apart from that, the corporation looks into design and assembly of jet engines, helicopters, aircraft and related spare parts. Looking at the kind of operations the business looks into, you can understand that HAL is going to have limited competition in the aviation space. Furthermore, it carries a history of working and collaborating with big fish at the global level as well.

As far as this IPO is concerned, HAL is looking to dilute 10% of its equity and certainly looks to be one of the lucrative IPOs.


Industry – Transportation

Status – To be Announced

If you make 10 people sit in a room and test them for brand recalls, there is a good chance that most of the people sitting would have known about IRCTC. In a quick duration, this online railway booking portal has been able to win reasonable brand equity. Yes, a portion of users might have their negative experiences as well but still, it is a monopoly and is most likely going to stay that way.

IRCTC or Indian Railway Catering and Tourism Corporation books millions of tickets every single day and is now looking to raise some fresh capital from the primary market. However, it seems that the IPO is going to get delayed due to some lapses in the financial recordings.

The Indian Railway Ministry is looking to fix these concerns first so that this upcoming IPO can get a better valuation and these smaller issues do not lead to any impact on the IPO valuation.

Without a doubt, this launch is one of the most looked forward to Upcoming IPOs.

National Stock Exchange IPO

Industry – Finance

Status – To be Announced

A major chunk of Indian traders and investors trade through NSE or National Stock Exchange. The exchange was established back in the year 1994 and is one of the largest exchanges in the world for the last few years. The exchange NSE launched one of its own kind in India – electronic screen-based trading in 1994, then derivatives trading and internet trading in 2000, which again were each the first of its kind in India.

Now, this particular entity is looking to raise capital from the stock market itself. The exchange has shown a reasonable profit at a consistent level in the last few years and if we look at some numbers, it filed a revenue of ₹2,359.1Crore and a PAT (Profit after tax) of ₹985.4 Crore.

If we are to pick top 5 picks out of these upcoming IPOs in 2018, NSE’s IPO will certainly be featured in that, without a doubt.

Go Air IPO

Industry – Aviation/Transportation

Status – To be Announced

Go Airlines or Go Air is one of the prominent domestic aviation business operated by the Wadia Group. It was established back in the year 2005 and today, they fly around 2300 flights every week. The airline positions itself as ‘Smart People’s Airline’ and offers low-cost air-travel to its customers.

If we talk about some numbers here, the airline posted a revenue of ₹2,973 Crore in 2015, ₹2,791.3 Crore in 2016. Then from the profitability perspective, it posted a profit of ₹277.3 Crore and then dipped to ₹150.2 Crore in 2016. 2017 numbers are to be published soon as well. Still, the picture does not really give a good impression.

Filing an IPO might not be a good time still, the company is looking to go ahead with their plans in the near future. We can only assume that Go Air has few surprises in the kitty before they hit the market. Not much of an enthusiasm from the investor community towards this Upcoming IPOs’ launch.

Acme Solar IPO

Industry – Energy

Status – To be Announced

With Solar Energy one of the most crucial aspects to look forward in the future along with getting a backing of Narendra Modi, any of the Upcoming IPOs coming from this sector have high chances of success.

  • Lemon Tree Premier
  • Lemon Tree Resorts
  • Lemon Tree Hotels
  • Red Fox

The positioning of these three brands is obviously for a different set of travellers and clients.

As far as the IPO listing is concerned, this 2002 established company, is looking to dilute around 24.90% of its equity. Apart from using the funds raised from the IPO into its business activities, Lemon Tree expects that this listing will help their brand to gain customer visibility and improve brand image, which honestly is not an unrealistic expectation.

It is going to be relatively a smaller issue and the company looks to use the funds in clearing some of the pending debts along with using capital in the operational expansion.

With the group looking towards a bankruptcy stage, not sure this list out of the Upcoming IPOs is seeing much of an excitement. Are you excited?
