  • All Indian and global tech stocks have corrected between 20% to 50% since the start of November 2021. Nykaa comes in the same pool.
  • Another reason cited by brokerage firm Jefferies was its higher valuation. In the last round ahead of its IPO, the company was valued little under $2 billion, but the IPO came at $8 billion, and post the bumper listing gains, the market cap stood at $13 million. A correction was due.
