Most brokerage houses have given favourable recommendations to the IPO but not without highlighting the pain points of high revenue concentration among top clients and stretched working capital cycle. IPO Central believes that while listing gains are possible in the IPO, investors will find better opportunities in coming months. Motilal Oswal is substantially cutting its shareholding in Power Mech Projects. In August, more IPOs are lined up, biggest being Dilip Buildcon.
