6

2020 finally comes to an end and in more than one ways, it has been a watershed year. Investors were subjected to a sharp and brutal selloff not witnessed in decades but the stronger hands were also rewarded with an equally impressive but unanticipated recovery. With the markets now in much better shape, investors have reasons to look more favorably at 2021. This is especially true for the upcoming IPOs in 2021 since high liquidity and better sentiments will mean more initial offerings in this year.

#6 Nazara Technologies – Gaming + Tech

Nazara Technologies IPO

Mobile gaming leader Nazara Technologies is another high-profile company in the list of upcoming IPOs in 2021. The company behind popular games such as World Cricket Championship, Chhota Bheem Race, Motu Patlu Race first filed its prospectus in January 2018 but its plans didn’t materialize even after receiving SEBI approval.

As part of India’s tech companies likely to get listed, NazaraTechnologies will be closely watched as a result of its dominant position in a highgrowth area. According to the previously filed prospectus, the company registeredrevenue of INR56.1 crore in FY2013 but the corresponding figure is likely to swellto INR470 crore in FY2021.

#7 LIC – Biggest of the upcoming IPOs in 2021

LIC IPO

Life Insurance Corporation of India (LIC) is simply the most anticipated IPO in India this year. The insurance major is likely to be valued more than INR13 lakh crores. Given the humongous size of the company, even offering 5% equity in the offer is likely to result in INR65,000 crore float. It will require several changes in the regulatory and market setup to accommodate the size of the IPO.

As of now, Coal India IPO takes the crown of the biggest public offer in India and its size of INR15,200 crore presents the stark difference between the two IPOs. However, this size is likely to help retail investors with firm allotment. Taking the ground work ahead, the Department of Investment and Public Asset Management (Dipam) has finalized Milliman Advisors LLP India for valuing the insurance behemoth ahead of the IPO.

#8 Zomato

Zomato IPO

Online food ordering player Zomato is yet another entry in the list of interesting upcoming IPOs in 2021. Although it is yet to file draft prospectus in this regard, the company has made some executive changes keeping the public offer in mind. The offer is targeted for the first half of 2021 even as Zomato recently completed a INR4,620 crore (USD660 million) funding round ahead of the IPO.

The food tech unicorn isn’t profitable but that is unlikelyto deter investors looking for business growth, grey premiums and listinggains. During FY2020, the company’s losses surged 160% to INR2,451 crore whilerevenues jumped 98% to INR2,485 crore.

#9 HDB Financial Services – Among the most anticipated forthcoming IPOs

HDB Financial Services IPO

HDB Financial Services – a subsidiary of HDFC Bank – is alsolikely to go public this year, making it fifth group company to list on stockexchanges. The nonbanking finance unit’s IPO is likely to mobilize INR10,000 crore and its parent hasalready hired merchant bankers for the offer. Apart from consumer loans, the companyoffers enterprise loans and asset financing.  

The company has posted impressive performance in recent years. For the year ended 31 March 2020, HDB Financial Services posted profit of INR1,005 crore on revenues of INR10,756 crore. In comparison, its top-line stood at just INR3,302 crore in FY2016, according to annual reports on  its website. Despite this high growth, HDB has managed to keep the quality of its credit profile intact. Being an HDFC-group company, HDB is likely to fetch premium valuations as well as another entry in the forthcoming IPOs in 2021.

#10 Reliance Jio

Jio Platforms IPO

Here is another very interesting IPO name for 2021 and it could be a game changer for its parent Reliance Industries too. According to a CLSA report, the upcoming offer may be launched in 2021, although no paperwork has been filed so far. Since IPO of Jio Platforms is likely to be a massive one, it is likely to be listed in overseas markets in order to fetch higher valuations and get better visibility.

However, the listing of LIC is likely to be a landmark in several ways and it could very well attract overseas investors and prompt IPO-bound companies to look inwards. In any case, investors in Reliance Industries stand to benefit from the listing of Jio Platforms.

Since this isn’t an exhaustive list, we will see lot more interesting IPOs in 2021. Some of these interesting names not captured in the list above are Nykaa, Barbeque Nation Hospitality, ESAF Small Finance Bank, Suryoday Small Finance Bank, Laxmi Organics and Craftsman Automation. Stay tuned to IPO Central to get regular updates about these IPOs and the relevant strategy to follow to make best use of the opportunities.
