The fund mobilization via public issues may cross Rs 10,000 crore marks in the current year as many more companies are lined-up to mobilize funds via primarily market.
Low-cost airline IndiGo's parent InterGlobe Aviation has fixed the price band for its initial share sale at Rs 700-765, through which it could raise up to Rs 3,268 crore.
According to Pranav Haldea, Managing Director of PRIME, even though a general positive sentiment has prevailed in the market, we are yet to see large IPOs hitting the market.
The pipeline though looks promising. At present, 19 companies planning to raise Rs 11,545 crore are holding Securities and Exchange Board of India (SEBI) approval and another 17 companies intending to raise Rs 6,795 crore have filed with SEBI and are awaiting approval, as per PRIME database.
