Initial Public Offering or IPO is the action by which unlisted companies mark their debut on the stock markets. This is the time that the company has decided to raise money from the public through the stock exchanges. 

Many investors aim to buy shares of fairly valued companies during their IPOs. 

The primary source of information in such a process is the DRHP or the Draft Red Herring Prospectus – a document which the company prepares detailing its financial position, day to day operations, risks and strengths and many more things that an investor may wish to know. 

If you have been wondering which IPOs have taken place so far in 2021 and which ones are to take place in the near future, here’s the information:

What is the full form of IPO?

IPO stands for Initial Public Offering. It is what it sounds like – it is the initial time when a company asks the public in general to buy its shares.

The first list above mentions a list of latest upcoming IPOs. 

How to buy shares during an IPO?

It is a really simple step. Go to this link (if you wish to buy the shares using Groww):

Select the IPO you wish to apply for and if it is a current IPO (i.e. it is live) just select ‘Apply for the IPO’ and the page will guide you through the process. 

What happens once I place an order for shares?

Investors do not get the shares the minute they send their money during an IPO. Once you place an order, the possibility whether you will actually receive the shares depends on the subscription status of the current IPO. 

In case of an oversubscription, you will receive less number of shares than what you applied for. When under subscription happens, you will receive all the shares you applied for. 

In case of under subscription below a particular threshold, the IPO may not qualify to get listed and you will get your money back.  

To know more, you may refer: What is IPO, Reasons for non-allotment of shares in an IPO

When are the shares allotted? 

The shares are usually allotted one week after the basis of the allotment date i.e. one week after the date when investors (who had applied for the IPO) are made aware of the number of shares they will be allotted. 

We hope you found this information about latest IPOs and IPOs listed in 2021 helpful.
