These 5 IPOs are star performers of 2022; 4 firms emerge as multibagger


The year 2022 is just a couple of days away from saying goodbye! It was a whole different roller coaster ride for Indian markets due to macroeconomic uncertainties which led to extreme volatility and IPOs as well felt the heat too. However, despite the shockwaves, the market has touched some impressive milestones as well. Like how Sensex and Nifty 50 skyrocketed to their lifetime highs in early December. Like how IPO markets witnessed some of the biggest public offers and listings. While talking about a behemoth IPO in the history of this market, LIC will cross investors’ minds, and not to overlook major fintech companies taking this route as well. Overall, the IPO market had a bittersweet performance. Even if the IPOs had strong fundamentals, the listing was lacklustre for some due to volatile markets. But nevertheless, some companies have emerged as star performers of 2022 so far in the IPO market.

According to Nirav Karkera, Head of Research, Fisdom, this year ushered in a myriad set of challenges to equity capital markets. The first half was characterised by challenges emerging from stressed geopolitics, fractured supply chains, reversal of easy monetary policies, and runaway global inflation.

Further, Karkera explained that with secondary markets running on dented sentiments, the first four months witnessed a low 18 IPOs. However, as global central banks and companies started gaining and disseminating clarity on the path ahead, secondary markets picked steam. Primary markets were quick to follow. 78% of total IPOs launched and listed as on November 2022 were launched in the past seven months alone. Of this, 56% were launched in the past three months alone as secondary markets shifted gears to a full-blown bull phase.

Also, Fisdom head of research revealed that as secondary markets rebounded and investor sentiments restored itself to a great degree, effects were observed during IPO listings as well. Over three-quarters of IPOs listed at a premium while ~18% of these are listed at a 50% premium to the higher end of the issue price band.

Data compiled by FYERS revealed that from January 1st to December 2nd, 34 IPOs were on offer in the main board (on BSE/NSE), with a total issuance size of 60,449.59 crore. Of these, 32 offerings commenced trading in the secondary market.

FYERS data showcased that the prominent listing was of the Life Insurance Corporation of India, with an issue size of

21,008 crore, followed by Delhivery Limited at 5,235 crore and Ruchi Soya Industries at 4,300 crore.
