IPO Allotment

How to Check IPO Allotment Status?

An Initial Public Offering is considered a momentous occasion for any private company. It is a sign that the company has wholly matured to a fully-grown and effective organisation by commanding goodwill in the market and raising public funds. For several venture-capital start-ups, an IPO backs into the list of things they want to achieve by fulfilling the wishes of the investors by delivering an exit.

IPOs are done at a large scale, and they bring about some management changes within the company. With a fresh infusion of funds, companies expand their operations, invest in product development, hire better talent, and so on. This comes at the cost of dilution of the ownership, and the price at which stocks trade indicates the trust investors place on the potential. Now, if the company has matured enough to announce IPO, they have faced many storms.

They may have already established themselves as a leader in the segment under it. The IPO attracts a lot of coverage and fanfare for such companies as numerous potential investors arewilling to join the bandwagon. Before you think about IPO Investment, you need to have the following aspects ready:

  • Trading Account
  • Demat Account
  • Amount in Demat that corresponds to your bid

If you have these basics together, start with the application process. After an IPO closes, the allotment process starts. In case of oversubscription, the shares get allotted to applicants either proportionately or based on a lottery. The merchant bank and the registrar to the issue finalise the basis of allotment. This then gets approved by the stock exchanges and is made available on the registrar’s website to the issue.

The issuing company also intimates the public through newspaper advertisements about the issue price and the basis of allotment.
