Upcoming IPO in February 2022

IPOs in Feb

Last year we saw 63 companies coming up with their IPOs. On average, more than five companies became public every month. The first month of January 2022 started slowly with only two companies coming up with their IPOs. The primary reason for that could be a lot of volatility in the market that is seen before the Budget. Second, the recently listed tech companies have seen massive corrections. Many companies would have postponed their IPO for the same reason. 

However, in the coming weeks and months, investors can look forward to many IPOs. The most expected IPO of 2022 - Life Insurance Corporation of India (LIC) is expected to file DRHP in the next week and is expected to go live in the first week of March.
