IPO ISSUES IN Q… WAITING FOR THE MARKETS TO STABILISE—LIC IPO MAY ENTER MARKETS ANY TIME IN A FEW MONTHS.
Activity in the market for initial public offerings (IPOs) has died down for now, as sentiment overall has turned cautious.
Last financial year, 30 companies raised around Rs 31,000 crore through IPOs as the market was on a tear, aided by robust liquidity conditions across the globe.
Things have been slow so far this year, but that could be set to change.

Arohan Financial Services, Dodla Dairy, India Pesticides, Krishna Institute of Medical Sciences, Sona Comstar, Seven Islands Shipping, among others have already received the green light from SEBI.
Zomato, GoAir, Devyani International, Supriya Lifescience, Medi Assist, Fincare SFB, Penna Cement, Windlas Biotech are among those which have filed papers with SEBI and are awaiting the go-ahead.
