Indian primary markets are on a roll with IPOs being launched left, right, and center in the mainboard as well as SME segments. On similar lines, November is expected to be a busy month with several high-profile names lined up to launch their IPOs. Here is the list of upcoming IPOs in November 2023, full with all the details you need.
Tata Technologies – Among the Most Anticipated Upcoming IPOs in November 2023
Tata Technologies – a subsidiary of Tata Motors – offers engineering, digital services, product development, and outsourcing services to its global clients. There are very high expectations from Tata Technologies IPO as far as retail investors are concerned. Since a Tata Group IPO is coming after a long time, last being TCS in 2004, high demand among investors is warranted. Such demand usually leads to poor allotment chances but thankfully, there is a special reservation for shareholders of Tata Motors.
Investors still have time to simply buy at least one share of Tata Motors and boost their allotment chances in the IPO.
ESAF Bank – Leading Name Among the Upcoming IPO in November 2023
ESAF Bank’s focus is on providing loans to customers in rural and semi-urban areas. As of 31 March 2023, its gross advances to customers in rural and semi-urban areas accounted for 62.84% of gross advances, and 71.71% of the banking outlets were located in rural and semi-urban areas.
The bank’s liability products comprise current accounts, savings accounts, term deposits, and recurring deposits. As of 31 March 2023, it had 6.48 million deposit accounts. Its AUM grew from INR 8,425.93 crore as of 31 March 2021 to INR 16,331.27 crore in 2023, registering a CAGR of 39.22%, which was the highest CAGR among its peers.
ESAF Bank IPO is likely to raise around INR 629 crores through a mix of fresh shares and an OFS.
SPC Life Sciences
SPC Life Sciences is another upcoming IPO in November 2023. This Vadodara-based API manufacturer plans to raise INR 300 crore by issuing fresh shares. In addition, there will be an Offer For Sale (OFS) of 8,938,870 shares by existing shareholders.
