Pranav Haldea, Managing Director, Prime Database said that all IPOs that could get the required subscription are successful. Even if an IPO is subscribed 1 time, it shows that there was enough demand for the IPO at that price.

Keyur Majmudar, Managing Partner at Bay Capital said that compared to last year, IPO exuberance has been rightly tempered in 2022. Many IPOs scheduled at the start of the year were pushed deeper into the year owing to the macro scenario and geopolitical factors. Despite the challenges, investors continued to look at reasonably priced IPOs, and quite a few IPOs since the middle of the year received a good response. Investor appetite, while being suitable for certain types of businesses, was largely tempered for internet-based and digital-first companies.
