This time the IPO bell rang for Likhitha Infrastructure. The company said it is planning to debut in the Indian stock bourses on September 29. If the company hits the market in September, it will be the eighth company to offer IPO amid lockdown.
The IPO market has turned around really well since the lockdown hit the country’s economy. The Indian financial market suffered a downslide, along with other countries in the world when COVID-19 became a global pandemic. As the market plummeted, several companies postpone their plans to list in the exchange, citing market conditions. However, since July, the resurgence of the IPO market has been nearly phenomenal. September, especially, has seen a significant recovery in the primary market segment after a pause of over four months.
Now coming to the latest IPO announcements, Likhitha Infrastructure IPO will hit the market for Rs 61.2 crores in the final week of September. The offer will contain 51 lakh fresh equity shares of the company. Post IPO, promoters’ stake in the company will reduce from the current 99.96 percent to 74.11 percent.

2020 has been a terrible year ever for the Indian companies and the market. The IPO market hit the floor with the lowest IPO registrations in the last four years. However, after a drought, investors’ reserve seems to be easing, and more companies will join the action to tap into the buoyant market. The recent IPO sales have seen full participation from investors, which prompted experts to believe that renewed demand will encourage more firms to test investor interest over the next few months.
