The Securities Contract (Regulation) Act, 1956 [SCRA] defines Stock Exchange as any
body of individuals, whether incorporated or not, constituted for the purpose of assisting,
regulating or controlling the business of buying, selling or dealing in securities. Stock
exchange could be a regional stock exchange whose area of operation/jurisdiction is
specified at the time of its recognition or national exchanges, which are permitted to have
nationwide trading since inception. NSE was incorporated as a national stock exchange.
Do you know that the world's foremost marketplace New York Stock Exchange (NYSE),
started its trading under a tree (now known as 68 Wall Street) over 200 years ago?
Similarly, India's premier stock exchange Bombay Stock Exchange (BSE) can also trace
back its origin to as far as 125 years when it started as a voluntary non-profit making
News on the stock market appears in different media every day. You hear about it any
time it reaches a new high or a new low, and you also hear about it daily in statements
like 'The BSE Sensitive Index rose 5% today'. Obviously, stocks and stock markets are
important. Stocks of public limited companies are bought and sold at a stock exchange.
But what really are stock exchanges? Known also as the stock market or bourse, a stock
exchange is an organized marketplace for securities (like stocks, bonds, options) featured
by the centralization of supply and demand for the transaction of orders by member
brokers, for institutional and individual investors.
The exchange makes buying and selling easy. For example, you don't have to actually go
to a stock exchange, say, BSE - you can contact a broker, who does business with the
BSE, and he or she will buy or sell your stock on your behalf.
Stock exchanges are the most perfect type of market for securities, whether of govt. and
semi-govt. bodies and also for shares and debentures issued by the joint stock companies
in the stock market, purchases and sale of shares are made in conditions of free

competition. Govt. securities are traded outside the trading ring in the form of over the
counter sale or purchase. The bargains that are stuck in the trading ring by the member
of the stock exchanges are at the fairest prices determined by the basis laws of demand
and supply.
The only stock exchanges operating in the 19th century were those of Bombay, set up in
1875 and Ahmadabad set up in 1894. These were organized as voluntary non-profit
making association of brokers to regulate and protect their interests before the control on
securities, trading became a central subject and the Bombay securities. Under this act, the
Bombay stock exchange was recognized in 1927 and Ahmadabad and other centres, but
they were not recognized. Soon after they become a central subject, central legislation
was proposed and a committee, headed by A.D GORWALA went into the bill of securities
contract, which became law in 1956.
The stock market activities in India were relatively on a low key during the beginning of
the decade of 80s mainly because of the allies regime till 947. Afterwards, the
government of India concentrated more on administration and less on development and
pursuit of the philosophy of public sector dominating the economy Stock exchanges were
placed under the exclusive regulation of the government through proclamation in 1930 of
the constitution of India.
During the 1950s & 1960s Indian economy was dominated by the public sector, which
was considerate as the major vehicle for economic and industrial development. This trend
has changed since mid 80s with liberalization of government polices and greater freedom
given to private sector.
This policy of progressively deregulating the economy led to the emergence of stock
markets as a major instrument of finance for industry and trade. India can boast of being
one of the oldest stock market in Asia. The Bombay stock exchange (BSE) as founded in
1875, while the London stock exchange was established in 1773.

Initial Public Offering: The first sale of stock by a company to the public. Companies
offering an IPO are sometimes new, young companies, or sometimes companies which
have been around for many years but are finally deciding to go public. IPOs are
often risky investments, but often have the potential for significant gains. IPOs are often
used as a way for a young company to gain necessary market capital.
The term "IPO" slipped into everyday speech during the tech bull market of the late
1990s. Back then, it seemed you couldn't go a day without hearing about a dozen new
dot-com millionaires in Silicon Valley cashing in on their latest IPO. The phenomenon
spawned the term "siliconaire," which described the dot-com entrepreneurs in their early
20s and 30s who suddenly found themselves living large due to IPOs from their Internet
companies. So, what is an IPO anyway? How did everybody get so rich so fast? And,
most importantly, is it possible for mere mortals like us to get in on an IPO? All these
questions and more will be answered in this tutorial. Before we continue, we suggest you
check out our stock basics tutorial as well as brokers and online trading if you don't have
a solid understanding of stocks and how they trade.
What is an IPO?
Selling Stock IPO is an acronym for Initial Public Offering. This is the first sale of stock
by a company to the public. A company can raise money by issuing either debt (bonds) or
equity. If the company has never issued equity to the public, it's known as an IPO.
Companies fall into two broad categories: private and public.
A privately held company has fewer shareholders and its owners don't have to disclose
much information about the company. Anybody can go out and incorporate a company:
just put in some money, file the right legal documents, and follow the reporting rules of
your jurisdiction. Most small businesses are privately held. But large companies can be
private too. Did you know that IKEA, Domino's Pizza, and Hallmark Cards are all
privately held?
It usually isn't possible to buy shares in a private company. You can approach the owners
about investing, but they're not obligated to sell you anything. Public companies, on the

Initial Public Offers and its effect on Stock Market

Page 3

other hand, have sold at least a portion of themselves to the public and trade on a stock
exchange. This is why doing an IPO is also referred to as "going public."
Public companies have thousands of shareholders and are subject to strict rules and
regulations. They must have a board of directors and they must report financial
information every quarter. In the United States, public companies report to the SEC. In
other countries, public companies are overseen by governing bodies similar to the SEC.
From an investor's standpoint, the most exciting thing about a public company is that the
stock is traded in the open market, like any other commodity. If you have the cash, you
can invest. The CEO could hate your guts, but there's nothing he or she could do to stop
you from buying stock. Why Go Public? Going public raises cash, and usually a lot of it.
Being publicly traded also opens many financial doors:
Because of the increased scrutiny, public companies can usually get better rates when
they issue debt.
As long as there is market demand, a public company can always issue more stock. Thus,
mergers and acquisitions are easier to do because stock can be issued as part of the deal.
Trading in the open markets means liquidity. This makes it possible to implement things
like employee stock ownership plans, which help to attract top talent.
Being on a major stock exchange carries a considerable amount of prestige. In the past,
only private companies with strong fundamentals could qualify for an IPO and it wasn't
easy to get listed. The Internet boom changed all this. Firms no longer needed strong
financials and a solid history to go public. Instead, IPOs were done by smaller startups
seeking to expand their business. There's nothing wrong with wanting to expand, but most
of these firms had never made a profit and didn't plan on being profitable any time soon.
Founded on venture capital funding, they spent like Texans trying to generate enough
excitement to make it to the market before burning through all their cash. In cases like
this, companies might be suspected of doing an IPO just to make the founders rich. In VC
talk, this is known as an exit strategy, implying that there's no desire to stick around and
create value for shareholders. The IPO then becomes the end of the road rather than the
beginning. How can this happen? Remember: an IPO is just selling stock. It's all about the
sales job. If you can convince people to buy stock in your company, you can raise a lot of
money. In our opinion, IPOs like this are extremely risky and should be avoided.

The prospectus includes very important information like the historical
performance of the company in the previous years, the current performance of the
company, the amount of shares that they are offering to the public, what they intend to do
with the money after the IPO amongst other things. Any prudent investor will take his/her
time to go through this information in order to make an informed decision on the amount
of shares to take up or even if to participate in the offer. As an investor this are the things
to look out for in the prospectus and Stock Markets concepts and how the indices of stock
markets will effected by an IPOs.

Research in common refers to a search for knowledge. We can also define
research as a scientific and systematic search for pertinent information on a specific topic.
D.Slesinger and M.Stephenson define research as the manipulation Of things,
concepts or symbols for the purpose of generalizing to extend, Correct or verify
knowledge, whether that the practice of an art.
Research methodology is a way to systematically solve the research Problem. The
steps adopted by the researcher to solve the research problem.

Descriptive Research

Descriptive research is used to obtain information concerning the current status of the
phenomena to describe what exists with respect to variables or conditions in a situation.
Descriptive research, also known as statistical research, describes data and characteristics
about the population or phenomenon being studied. Descriptive research answers the
questions who, what, where, when and how. Although the data description is factual,
accurate and systematic, the research cannot describe what caused a situation.

Analytical Research

Analytical research takes descriptive research one stage further by seeking to explain
the reasons behind a particular occurrence by discovering causal relationships. Once
causal relationships have been discovered, the search then shifts to factors that can be
changed (variables) in order to influence the chain of causality.
The research design is pre planned which is designed for analysis. And also the data was
collected from structured and well thought out instruments.

Explaining IPOs Under pricing in the Tunisian Market

This article tests four hypotheses (signaling, market tendency, market characteristics and
the ex ante uncertainty and information asymmetry) to explain the initial public offerings
(IPOs) under pricing in the Tunisian market. Most of the empirical studies focus mainly
on developed markets and only a few studies analyze the climates of IPOs in emerging
markets. The Tunisian business environment is motivating because of the institutional
reforms that have been successfully implemented since 1994. The study analyses all the
Tunisian IPOs from March 1992 to April 2008 in order to explain underpricing in IPOs.
The findings show that IPOs underpricing is mainly explained by the signalling and the
market characteristics hypotheses. The phenomenon of underpricing in IPOs is important
for portfolio managers who are expected to make optimal (value-maximising) financing
choices. Also, results of this study provide insight into the business environment in the
case of the Tunisian market.

research. In this research the researchers main aim is to find out the concepts IPOs as
well as how the stock market effected by an IPOs. In this research, researchers done a
case study on IPOs of COAL INDIA LIMITED. How the CIL IPOs affect the Stock

The literature review on IPOs can be divided in the following main headsa) Reason and timing of going public
Going public marks a watershed in the life cycle of the firm. While increased
equity can support the firms future plans of growth, the trade off for the firm is that of
increased public scrutiny.

Brealy and Myers (2005) state that in the context of USA the firms may seek
private equity in their initial years and only later go for public issues.

Pagano, Panetta and Zingales (1998) in their study of Italian firms, find that
firms going public are not seeking money for growth but are rebalancing their
accounts after high investment and growth.
Lerner (1994) found that there are times (windows of opportunity) when the
markets could be extremely optimistic about a particular industry and it may be a
good time for the firms in that industry to go public.
The post IPO period sees a reduction in leverage as well as investment. They state
that going public is a conscious choice that some firms make while some others prefer to
remain private. Thus going public is not a natural element in the life cycle of a firm.
b) Valuation of IPOs

Initial Public Offers and its effect on Stock Market

Page 16

Benveniste and Spindt (1989) find that under writers try to resolve the
information asymmetry problem between the firm and the investors by providing
an incentive to the investors to reveal their private information about the firm.

Kim and Ritter (1999) in their study of 190 firms find that under writers forecast
the next years earnings numbers and multiply them with PE ratios of comparable
firms in the industry to get the approximate price of the IPO. However they also
found that PE ratios using historical earnings numbers do not give accurate results
whereas when forecasted earnings numbers are used then the valuation is much
more accurate.
Purnanandam and Swaminathan (2002) say that IPOs are priced 50% higher
than industry peers. Also they find that more the IPO is overpriced with respect to
its peers, worse is its long term performance.
c) Allocation mechanism
The allocation mechanisms are specified by the regulators in different countries.
Loughran, Ritter and Rydqvist (1994) find 3 main categories across countriesAuctions, Fixed price offers and Book Building. Sherman (2005) finds that Book
building is a superior mechanism for selling IPOs rather than auctions.

Initial public offering (IPO), also referred to simply as a "public offering", is when a
company issues common stock or shares to the public for the first time. They are often
issued by smaller, younger companies seeking capital to expand, but can also be done by
large privately-owned companies looking to become publicly traded. In an IPO, the issuer
may obtain the assistance of an underwriting firm, which helps it determine what type of
security to issue (common or preferred), best offering price and time to bring it to market.
Initial Public Offering (IPO) in India means the selling of the shares of a company, for the
first time, to the public in the country's capital markets. This is done by giving to the












or by issuing new shares. During an Initial Public Offer (IPO) the shares are given to the
public at a discount on the intrinsic value of the shares and this is the reason that the
investors buy shares during the Initial Public Offering (IPO) in order to make profits for
IPO in India is done through various methods like book building method, fixed
price method, or a mixture of both. The method of book building has been introduced in
the country in 1999 and it helps the company to find out the demand and price of its
shares. A merchant banker is nominated as a book runner by the Issuer of the IPO. The
company that is issuing the Initial Public Offering (IPO) decides the number of shares
that it will issue and also fixes the price band of the shares. All these information are
mentioned in the company's red herring prospectus. During the company's Initial Public
Offering (IPO) in India, an electronic book is opened for at least five days. During this

Initial Public Offers and its effect on Stock Market

Page 19

period of time, bidding takes place which means that people who are interested in buying
the shares of the Company makes an offer within the fixed price band. Once the book
building is closed then the issuer as well as the book runner of the Initial Public Offering
(IPO) evaluate the offers and then determine a fixed price. The offers for shares that fall
below the fixed price are rejected. The successful bidders are then allotted the shares
IPOs can be a risky investment. For the individual investor, it is tough to predict what the
stock or shares will do on its initial day of trading and in the near future since there is
often little historical data with which to analyze the company. Also, most IPOs are of
companies going through a transitory growth period, and they are therefore subject to
additional uncertainty regarding their future value
Primarily, issues can be classified as a Public, Rights or preferential issues (also known as
private placements). While public and rights issues involve a detailed procedure, private
placements or preferential issues are relatively simpler. The classification of issues is
illustrated below:

Initial Public Offers and its effect on Stock Market

Page 20

Initial Public Offers and its effect on Stock Market

Page 21

Public issues can be further classified into Initial Public offerings and further public
offerings. In a public offering, the issuer makes an offer for new investors to enter its
shareholding family. The issuer company makes detailed disclosures as per the DIP
guidelines in its offer document and offers it for subscription. The significant features are
illustrated below:
Initial Public Offering (IPO)
It is when an unlisted company makes either a fresh issue of securities or an offer for sale
of its existing securities or both for the first time to the public. This paves way for listing
and trading of the issuers securities.
Further public offering (FPO)
It is when an already listed company makes either a fresh issue of securities to the public
or an offer for sale to the public, through an offer document. An offer for sale in such
scenario is allowed only if it is made to satisfy listing or continuous listing obligations.
Rights Issue (RI)
It is when a listed company which proposes to issue fresh securities to its existing
shareholders as on a record date. The rights are normally offered in a particular ratio to
the number of securities held prior to the issue. This route is best suited for companies
who would like to raise capital without diluting stake of its existing shareholders unless
they do not intend to subscribe to their entitlements.
Private placement
It is an issue of shares or of convertible securities by a company to a select group of
persons under Section 81 of the Companies Act, 1956 which is neither a rights issue nor a
public issue. This is a faster way for a company to raise equity capital. A private
placement of shares or of convertible securities by a listed company is generally known
by name of preferential allotment. A listed company going for preferential allotment has
to comply with the requirements contained in Chapter XIII of SEBI (DIP) Guidelines
pertaining to preferential allotment in SEBI (DIP) guidelines include pricing, disclosures
in notice etc, in addition to the requirements specified in the Companies Act.

Major Reason for Listing IPO

The increase in the capital: An IPO allows a company to raise funds for
utilizing in various corporate operational purposes like acquisitions, mergers,
working capital, research and development, expanding plant and equipment and
Liquidity: The shares once traded have an assigned market value and can be
resold. This is extremely helpful as the company provides the employees with
stock incentive packages and the investors are provided with the option of trading
their shares for a price.
Valuation: The public trading of the shares determines a value for the company
and sets a standard. This works in favor of the company as it is helpful in case the
company is looking for acquisition or merger. It also provides the share holders of
the company with the present value of the shares.
Increased wealth: The founders of the companies have an affinity towards IPO
as it can increase the wealth of the company, without dividing the authority as in
case of partnership.
Eligibility Conditions for Companies Issuing Securities
The companies issuing securities offered through an offer document shall satisfy the
following at the time of filing the draft offer document with SEBI and also at the time of
filing the final offer document with the Registrar of Companies/ Designated Stock

Initial Public Offers and its effect on Stock Market

Page 24

The company has net tangible assets of at least Rs. 3 crores in each of the
preceding 3 full years (of 12 months each), of which not more than 50% is held in
monetary assets.

The company has a track record of distributable profits in terms of Section 205 of
the Companies Act, 1956, for at least three (3) out of immediately preceding five
(5) years.

The company has a net worth of at least Rs. 1 crore in each of the preceding 3 full
years (of 12 months each).

In case the company has changed its name within the last one year, at least 50% of
the revenue for the preceding 1 full year is earned by the company from the
activity suggested by the new name.


Fixed Pricing versus True Pricing (Book- Building)
The traditional method of doing IPOs is the fixed price offering. Here, the issuer and the
merchant banker agree on an issue price. Then the investor has a choice of filling in an
application form at this price and subscribing to the issue. Extensive research has revealed
that the fixed price offering is a poor way of doing IPOs. Fixed price offerings, all over
the world, suffer from `IPO underpricing'. In India, on average, the fixed-price seems to
be around 50% below the price at first listing; i.e. the issuer obtains 50% lower issue
proceeds as compared to what might have been the case. This average masks a steady
stream of dubious IPOs who get an issue price which is much higher than the price at first
listing. Hence fixed price offerings are weak in two directions:

dubious issues get overpriced and

Good issues get under priced.

A mechanism where, during period for which the IPO is open, bids are collected from
investors at various prices which are above or equal to the floor price (the minimum
price). The final price of the share is determined after the bid closing date, based on
certain evaluation criteria.

The SEBI (Disclosure and Investor Protection) Guidelines, 2000, define the term
`book-building' in a rather complex language as "a process undertaken by which a
demand for the securities proposed to be issued by a body corporate is elicited and builtup and the price for such securities is assessed for determination of the quantum of such
securities to be issued by means of a notice, circular, advertisement, document or
information memoranda or offer document.''
Book building process is a common practice used in most developed countries for
marketing a public offer of equity shares of a company. However, Book building acts as
scientific as well as flexible price discovery method through which a consensus price of
IPOs may be determined by the issuer company along with the Book Running Lead
Manager (i.e. merchant banker) on the basis of feedback received from individual
investors as well as most informed investors (who are institutional and corporate investors
like, UTI, LICI, GICI, FIIs, and SFCI etc). The method helps to make a correct evaluation
of a companys potential and the price of its shares.
In simple terms, book-building is a mechanism by which the issue price is discovered on
the basis of bids received from syndicate members/brokers and not by the
issuers/merchant bankers.

The issue of securities through Book building can be done in either of the following two

75% Book building

100% Book building

75% Book Building process:Under this type of public offer, the issue of securities has to be categorized into:

Placement portion category

Net offer to the public

The option of 75% Book Building is available to all body corporate that are

otherwise eligible to make an issue of capital to the public. The securities issued through
the book building process are indicated as 'placement portion category' and securities
Initial Public Offers and its effect on Stock Market

Page 26

available to public are identified as 'net offer to public'. In this option, underwriting is
mandatory to the extent of the net offer to the public. The issue price for the placement
portion and offers to public are required to be same
100% of the net offer to the public through Book Building process:The 100% of the net offer to the public, entire issue is made through Book
Building process. However, there can be a reservation or firm allotment to a maximum of
5% of the issue size for the permanent employees, shareholders of the company or group
companies, persons who, on the date of filing of the draft offer document with the Board,
have business association, as depositors, bondholders and subscribers to services, with the
issuer making an initial public offering.
The number of bidding centres, in case of 75% book building process should not
be less than the number of mandatory collection centres specified by SEBI. In case of
100% book building process, the bidding centres should be at all the places where the
recognised stock exchanges are situated.

The Book building is basically an auction of share. Book building essentially means that
the book is being built. During the process on both the NSE & BSE, investors can watch
the book being built a chart shown indicates the bid price & the number of shares being
bid for. This helps the investors to know the market price. Following mentioned are the
main steps of Book building Process.
The company first appoints a book runner, i.e. merchant banker.
The book runner prepares & submits the draft documents to the SEBI &
obtains an acknowledgement card.
The issuer & book runner decide to offer shares at a price within a specified
price band (range).
Offer regarding the demand for securities at different price levels are invited
from syndicate members consisting of eligible brokers, merchant bankers,

Initial Public Offers and its effect on Stock Market

Page 27

underwriters, financial institutions, the bids. The advertisement should mention

the opening & closing dates for the bids. A bid is usually open for minimum 5
working days.
Based on the bids received, the issuer arrives at a final cut-off rate & the
allocation in consultation with BRLM.
The issuer & the book runner may impose restrictions on the number of shares
that can be allotted to each client so as to avoid any future takeover threats.

The final prospectus is filed with the registrar of companies along with the
procurement agreement.

The placement portion opens for subscription only after the prospectus is filed
with the ROC.

The placement portion closes a day before the opening of the public issue portion.

The public portion opens & the allotment & listing of puts is done. The price
determined in the Book building process is applicable to the public portion as
well. If the public portion stands oversubscribed, then the allotment is made on a
proportionate basis.

Book Building Process in India

The steps which are usually followed in the book building process can be summarized
1. The issuer company proposing an IPO appoints a lead merchant banker as a
2. Initially, the issuer company consults with the BRLM in drawing up a draft
prospectus (i.e. offer document) which does not mention the price of the issues,
but includes other details about the size of the issue, past history of the company,
and a price band. The securities available to the public are separately identified as
net offer to the public.
3. The draft prospectus is filed with SEBI which gives it a legal standing.
4. A definite period is fixed as the bid period and BRLM conducts awareness
campaigns like advertisement, road shows etc.
5. The BRLM appoints a syndicate member, a SEBI registered intermediary to
underwrite the issues to the extent of net offer to the public.

The BRLM is entitled to remuneration for conducting the Book Building process.

7. The copy of the draft prospectus may be circulated by the BRLM to the
institutional investors as well as to the syndicate members.
8. The syndicate members create demand and ask each investor for the number of
shares and the offer price.
9. The BRLM receives the feedback about the investors bids through syndicate
10. The prospective investors may revise their bids at any time during the bid period.
11. The BRLM on receipts of the feedback from the syndicate members about the bid
price and the quantity of shares applied has to build up an order book showing the
demand for the shares of the company at various prices. The syndicate members
must also maintain a record book for orders received from institutional investors
for subscribing to the issue out of the placement portion.
12. On receipts of the above information, the BRLM and the issuer company
determine the issue price. This is known as the market-clearing price.

Initial Public Offers and its effect on Stock Market

Page 29

13. The BRLM then closes the book in consultation with the issuer company and
determine the issue size of (a) placement portion and (b) public offer portion.
14. Once the final price is determined, the allocation of securities should be made by
the BRLM based on prior commitment, investors quality, price aggression,
earliness of bids etc. The bid of an institutional bidder, even if he has paid full
amount may be rejected without being assigned any reason as the Book Building
portion of institutional investors is left entirely at the discretion of the issuer
company and the BRLM.
15. The Final prospectus is filed with the registrar of companies within 2 days of
determination of issue price and receipts of acknowledgement card from SEBI.
16. Two different accounts for collection of application money, one for the private
placement portion and the other for the public subscription should be opened by
the issuer company.
17. The placement portion is closed a day before the opening of the public issue
through fixed price method. The BRLM is required to have the application forms
along with the application money from the institutional buyers and the
underwriters to the private placement portion.
18. The allotment for the private placement portion shall be made on the 2nd day from
the closure of the issue and the private placement portion is ready to be listed.
19. The allotment and listing of issues under the public portion (i.e. fixed price
portion) must be as per the existing statutory requirements.
20. Finally, the SEBI has the right to inspect such records and books which are
maintained by the BRLM and other intermediaries involved in the Book Building
Before establishment of SEBI in 1992, the quality of disclosures in the offer documents
was very poor.
The main drawback of free pricing was the process of pricing of issues. The issue price
was determined around 60-70 days before the opening of the issue and the issuer had no
clear idea about the market perception of the price determined.

Initial Public Offers and its effect on Stock Market

Page 30

In Book Building the price is determined on the basis of demand received or at price
above or equal to the floor price.

The Allotment Process through Book-building:

Step1- The Company will 'discover' its price
Earlier, the company determined a fixed price for the stock issue. The issue was marketed
to the general public through advertisements and a media campaign.
Today, companies prefer a book building process. Book building is the process of price
discovery. That means there is no fixed price for the share. Instead, the company issuing
the shares comes up with a price band. The lowest price is referred to as the floor and the
highest, the cap. Bids are then invited for the shares. Each investor states how many
shares s/he wants and what s/he is willing to pay for those shares (depending on the price
band). The actual price is then discovered based on these bids.
Step2 - Players of the game
Three classes of investors can bid for the shares:
Qualified Institutional Buyers: QIBs include mutual funds and Foreign
Institutional Investors. At least 50% of the shares are reserved for this category.
Retail investors: Anyone who bids for shares under Rs 50,000 is a retail investor.
At least 25% is reserved for this category.
The balance bids are offered to high net worth individuals and employees of the

The Advantages of IPO are numerous. The companies are launching more and more
IPOs to raise funds which are utilized for undertakings various projects including
expansion plans. The Advantages of IPO is the primary factor for the immense growth of
the same in the last few years. The IPO or the initial public offering is a term used to
describe the first sale of the shares to the public by any company. All types of companies
with the idea of enhancing growth launch IPOs to generate funds to cater the
requirements of capital for expansion, acquiring of capital instruments, undertaking new
Major Advantages of IPO
IPO has a number of advantages. IPO helps the company to create a public awareness
about the company as these public offerings generate publicity by inducing their products
to various investors.
The increase in the capital: An IPO allows a company to raise funds for utilizing in
various corporate operational purposes like acquisitions, mergers, working capital,
research and development, expanding plant and
equipment and marketing.
Liquidity: The shares once traded have an assigned market value and can be resold.
This is extremely helpful as the company provides the employees with stock incentive
packages and the investors are provided with the option of trading their shares for a price.

Initial Public Offers and its effect on Stock Market

Page 32

Valuation: The public trading of the shares determines a value for the company and
sets a standard. This works in favor of the company as it is helpful in case the company is
looking for acquisition or merger. It also provides the share holders of the company with
the present value of the shares.
Increased wealth: The founders of the companies have an affinity towards IPO as it
can increase the wealth of the company, without dividing the authority as in case of
Drawbacks of IPOs
It is true that IPO raises huge capital for the issuing company. But, in order to launch an
Initial Public Offering (IPO), it is also necessary to make certain investments. Setting up
an IPO does not always lead to an improvement in the economic performance of the
company. A continuing expenditure has to be incurred after the setting up of an IPO by
the parent company. A lot of expenses have to be incurred in the form of legal fees,
printing costs and accounting fees, which are connected to the registering of an IPO. Such
expenses might cost hundreds of US dollars. Apart from such enormous costs, there are
other factors as well that should be taken into consideration by the company while
introducing an IPO.
Such factors include the rules and regulations involved to set up public offerings and this
entire process on the other hand involve a number of complexities which sometime
require the services of experts in relevant fields. Some companies hire experts to do the
needful to ensure a hassle-free execution of the task. After the IPO is introduced, the
expenses become a routine in every activity involved. Besides, the CEO of the company
would have to spend a lot of time in handling the SEC regulations or sometimes he hires
experts to do the same. All these aspects, if not handled with efficiency, prove to be some
major drawbacks related to the launch of IPOs.
The launch of IPO also brings about shareholders of the company. Shareholders have
ownership in the company. The primary owners of the company or the people holding
maximum authority in the company cannot take decisions all by themselves once an IPO
has been launched and shareholders have been formed. The shareholders have an active
participation in every decision that is being taken even if they do not hold 50 percent
Initial Public Offers and its effect on Stock Market

Page 33

share of the company. They have their individual demands to be met as they own a certain
percentage of stakes in the company. The SEC regulations require notifications from the
shareholders of the company, meetings, and also approvals from them while making
important business decisions.
A major risk with shareholders is that, they can sell off their stocks any time they want, in
case they see the price band of the stakes of that company is going down. This will lead to
a further drop of the value of shares in the market which in turn will decrease the overall
value of the company.
IPO Grading
IPO grading (initial public offering grading) is a service aimed at facilitating the
assessment of equity issues offered to public. The grade assigned to any individual issue
represents a relative assessment of the fundamentals of that issue in relation to the other
listed equity securities in India. IPO grading is positioned as a service that provides an
independent assessment of fundamentals to aid comparative assessment that would prove
useful as an information and investment tool for investors. Moreover, such a service
would be particularly useful for assessing the offerings of companies accessing the equity
markets for the first time where there is no track record of their market performance.
IPO grade assigned to any issue represents a relative assessment of the fundamentals of
that issue in relation to the universe of other listed equity securities in India. This grading
can be used by the investor as tool to make investment decision. The IPO grading will
help the investor better appreciate the meaning of the disclosures in the issue documents
to the extent that they affect the issues fundamentals. Thus, IPO grading is an additional
investor information and investment guidance tool.
Credit Rating agencies (CRAs) like ICRA, CRISIL, CARE and Fitch Ratings who are
registered with SEBI will carry out IPO grading. SEBI does not play any role in the
assessment made by the grading agency. The grading is intended to be an independent and
unbiased opinion of that agency. IPO grading is not mandatory but is optional and the
assigned grade would be a one time assessment done at the time of the IPO and meant to
aid investors who are interested in investing in the IPO. The grade will not have any
ongoing validity.

No unlisted company shall make an IPO of equity shares or any other security
which may be converted into or exchanged with equity shares at a later date,
unless the following conditions are satisfied as on the date of filing of Prospectus
(in case of fixed price issue) or Red Herring Prospectus (in case of book built
issue) with ROC:

The unlisted company has obtained grading for the IPO from at least one
credit rating agency;

Disclosures of all the grades obtained, along with the rationale/description

furnished by the credit rating agency(ies) for each of the grades obtained,
have been made in the Prospectus (in case of fixed price issue) or Red
Herring Prospectus (in case of book built issue); and

The expenses incurred for grading IPO have been borne by the unlisted
company obtaining grading for IPO.

Most of the market analysts have welcomed this move of SEBI as it will help the
investors in a volatile market to know whether the merchant banker has carried the
exercise in determining the price of an issue in a proper manner or not. It will also help
the investors in knowing whether the price of the issue is justified or not. They even said
that management of a good company will never get afraid of getting graded of their IPOs
if they are good. The only demerit of this step by the SEBI as said by many experts is that
there will be a slowdown in the number of IPOs coming out as grading will be a bit
lengthy process and there will be a cost-factor attached to it also.
IPO grading covers both internal and external aspects of a company seeking to
make an IPO in general. The internal factors include competence and effectiveness of the
management, profile of promoters, marketing strategies, size and growth of revenues,
competitive edge, technology, operating efficiency, liquidity and financial flexibility, asset
quality, accounting quality, profitability and hedging of risks. Among external factors, the
key one is the industry and economic/business environment for the issuer. Here, it is
important to note that internationally, the global rating agencies such as Standard & Poors
and Moodys do not perform grading of IPOs at all. While Standard & Poors is the
Initial Public Offers and its effect on Stock Market

Page 35

majority stakeholder in CRISIL Ltd, Moodys is the single biggest stakeholder in ICRA
Ltd. Similarly, the third global player Fitch IBCA (which acquired another rating agency
Dun & Bradstreet in 2000) also does not grade IPOs as yet. The IPO grading is indicated
on a five point scale and a higher score indicating stronger fundamentals.


IPO grade



Strong fundamentals


Above average fundamentals


Average fundamentals


Below average fundamentals


Poor fundamentals

The process will ideally require 2-3 weeks for completion, so it may be a good
idea for companies to initiate the grading process about 6-8 weeks before the
targeted IPO date to provide sufficient time for any contingencies.

Cost Involved In IPO Grading

Though nothing has been declared officially but most of the credit rating has said
that IPO-grading would not cost much to the issuers. They would be charging 10 basis
points of the amount to be raised with a ceiling of about Rs 10-15 lakhs. Thus, even in the
case of a mega IPO, there would be a cap on fees, he noted. Around 100 IPOs hit the
market on an average every year. However, despite this seemingly big number, the total
receipts for the entire rating industry on account of grading fees would be only about Rs
10-15 crore.

Benefits of IPO Grading

Initial Public Offers and its effect on Stock Market

Page 36

There are various positive sides of an IPO grading. The most significant factors
that go in favor of IPO grading are:
(a) Professional and Independent Appraisal: IPO grading will create awareness
about the fundamentals of the companys IPO and will provide focused company
information as a key input to prospective investors that will be helpful in taking an
investment decision, in a manner similar to what a credit rating is for debt
(b) Removal of Information Burden: Where disclosures of issues are large and
complex, a service analyzing and interpreting these disclosures independently and
quickly will be extremely useful in cutting through the clutter. Thus, the
usefulness of IPO grading would be particularly high for small investors as it will
serve as a guide about the company coming out with the issue.
(c) Impediment for Weak Companies: While fundamentally sound companies will
gain from the market, companies whose fundamentals are not very strong will be
impeded in building up speculative demand among investors. Such weak
companies will need to offer pricing, which will adequately compensate investors
for the risks they take. Therefore, IPO grading provides disincentives for weak
companies planning to come to the market to raise easy capital.


Intermediarys help corporations design securities that will be attractive to
investors, buy these securities from the corporations, and then resell them to savers in the
primary markets.
Merchant Bankers/ Lead Manager
Merchant bankers play an important role in issue management process. Lead
managers have to ensure correctness of the information furnished in the offer document.
They have to ensure compliance with SEBI rules and regulations as also Guidelines for
Disclosures and Investor Protection. To this effect, they are required to submit to SEBI a
due diligence certificate confirming that the disclosures made in the draft prospectus or
letter of offer are true, fair and adequate to enable the prospective investors to make a

Initial Public Offers and its effect on Stock Market

Page 37

well informed investment decision. The role of merchant bankers in performing their due
diligence functions has become even more important with the strengthening of disclosure
requirements and with SEBI giving up the vetting of prospectuses. Their functions are:

To act as intermediaries between the company seeking to raise money and the
investors. They must possess a valid registration from SEBI enabling them to do
this job.

They are responsible for complying with the formalities of an issue, like drawing
up the prospectus and marketing the issue.

If it is a book building process, the lead manager is also in charge of it. In such a
case, they are also called Book Running Lead Managers.

Post issue activities, like intimation of allotments and refunds, are their responsibility as

The origin of the stock market in India goes back to the end of the eighteenth century
when long-term negotiable securities were first issued. However, for all practical
purposes, the real beginning occurred in the middle of the nineteenth century after the
enactment of the companies Act in 1850, which introduced the features of limited liability
and generated investor interest in corporate securities.
An important early event in the development of the stock market in India was the
formation of the native share and stock brokers 'Association at Bombay in 1875, the
precursor of the present day Bombay Stock Exchange. This was followed by the
formation of associations/exchanges in Ahmadabad (1894), Calcutta (1908), and Madras
(1937). In addition, a large number of ephemeral exchanges emerged mainly in buoyant
periods to recede into oblivion during depressing times subsequently.
Stock exchanges are intricacy inter-woven in the fabric of a nation's economic life.
Without a stock exchange, the saving of the community- the sinews of economic progress
and productive efficiency- would remain underutilized. The task of mobilization and
allocation of savings could be attempted in the old days by a much less specialized
institution than the stock exchanges. But as business and industry expanded and the
economy assumed more complex nature, the need for 'permanent finance' arose.
Entrepreneurs needed money for long term whereas investors demanded liquidity the
facility to convert their investment into cash at any given time. The answer was a ready
market for investments and this was how the stock exchange came into being.
Stock exchange means any body of individuals, whether incorporated or not, constituted
for the purpose of regulating or controlling the business of buying, selling or dealing in
securities. These securities include:
(i) Shares, scrip, stocks, bonds, debentures stock or other marketable securities of a like
nature in or of any incorporated company or other body corporate;
(ii) Government securities; and
(iii) Rights or interest in securities.

The Bombay Stock Exchange (BSE) and the National Stock Exchange of India Ltd (NSE)
are the two primary exchanges in India. In addition, there are 22 Regional Stock
Exchanges. However, the BSE and NSE have established themselves as the two leading
exchanges and account for about 80 per cent of the equity volume traded in India. The
NSE and BSE are equal in size in terms of daily traded volume. The average daily
turnover at the exchanges has increased from Rs 851 crore in 1997-98 to Rs 1,284 crore
in 1998-99 and further to Rs 2,273 crore in 1999-2000 (April - August 1999). NSE has
around 1500 shares listed with a total market capitalization of around Rs 9, 21,500 crore.
The BSE has over 6000 stocks listed and has a market capitalization of around Rs 9,
68,000 crore. Most key stocks are traded on both the exchanges and hence the investor
could buy them on either exchange. Both exchanges have a different settlement cycle,
which allows investors to shift their positions on the bourses. The primary index of BSE
is BSE Sensex comprising 30 stocks. NSE has the S&P NSE 50 Index (Nifty) which
consists of fifty stocks. The BSE Sensex is the older and more widely followed index.
Both these indices are calculated on the basis of market capitalization and contain the
heavily traded shares from key sectors. The markets are closed on Saturdays and
Sundays. Both the exchanges have switched over from the open outcry trading system to
a fully automated computerized mode of trading known as BOLT (BSE on Line Trading)
and NEAT (National Exchange Automated Trading) System.
It facilitates more efficient processing, automatic order matching, faster execution of
trades and transparency; the scrip's traded on the BSE have been classified into 'A', 'B1',
'B2', 'C', 'F' and 'Z' groups. The 'A' group shares represent those, which are in the carry
forward system (Badla). The 'F' group represents the debt market (fixed income
securities) segment. The 'Z' group scrip's are the blacklisted companies. The 'C' group
covers the odd lot securities in 'A', 'B1' & 'B2' groups and Rights renunciations. The key
regulator governing Stock Exchanges, Brokers, Depositories, Depository participants,
Mutual Funds, FIIs and other participants in Indian secondary and primary market is the
Securities and Exchange Board of India (SEBI) Ltd.

What are Bear?
Bear : An operator who expects the share price to fall
Bear Market : A weak and falling market where buyers are absent
What are Bulls?
Bull : An operator who expects the share price to rise and takes position in the
market to sell at a later date.
Bull Market : A rising market where buyers far outnumber the sellers
A bull market is one where prices are rising, whereas a bear market is one where
prices are falling. The two terms are also used to describe types of investors.
A stock market bull is someone who has a very optimistic view of the market; they may
be stock-holders or maybe investors who aggressively buy and sell stocks quickly. A bear
investor, on the other hand, is pessimistic about the market and may make more

Page 46

conservative stock choices. Sometimes, the terms are used to refer to specific funds or
stocks. Bear market funds, for example, are those that are falling and faring poorly.
Investors sometimes refer to bull stocks to describe securities that are aggressively rising
and making their investors money.
Knowing what is meant by the bear and bull market can help you understand whether the
market is currently rising or falling. There is no need to get frightened by a bear market
indicator; however, as experts agree that the market is cyclical. When prices start falling,
they will eventually rise too.


The stock market is affected by many economic factors. High employment levels, strong
economy, and stable social and economic conditions generally build investor confidence
and encourage investors to put their money in the stock market. Often, this can bolster
bull markets. Also, new technologies and companies that encourage investors to put their
money in stocks can create bull markets. For example, in the 1990s, the dot com craze
encouraged many investors to put their money in stocks that they felt would keep
increasing. In some cases, a bullish market is simply self-perpetuating. Since the market
is doing well, it only encourages investors to invest more money or to start investing.
On the other hand, discouraging economic or social political changes in a society can
push the market down. Sudden instability or unemployment -- or even fears of
unemployment caused by wars and other problems -- can start to make investors more
conservative and therefore lead to bear markets. Of course, again this becomes a selfperpetuating trend. As the economy slows down, companies begin downsizing. Increased

Initial Public Offers and its effect on Stock Market

Page 47

unemployment makes people far less willing to gamble on the stock market. Sometimes,
a panic caused by dire predictions about the market can also create bearish conditions.
1. In the simplest terms, a bear market is a downward trend that is long term, usually
measured in months. The term is generally applied to the stock market and may
include some variations, but the low points are not historically low and the high
points are not historically high.
2. A bull market, in contrast, is a trend of similar duration but in an upward direction.
Again, the high points are not at historic levels and the low points are not the
lowest in market history. For both a bear and a bull market, other definitions may
be more general or more specific, depending on the economist or study issuing the
3. The animal names assigned to these trends are accepted as accurate, for the most
part, because a positive market in which people are more aggressive is compared
to the traits of a healthy, active bull. Bears, on the other hand, are sometimes seen
as moving more slowly, especially in certain weather situations.
4. Yet another explanation has to do with the trading of real bear skins, with traders
in the middle betting on the price dropping as they sold skins they didnt possess
at the time. These men were sometimes called bears. Others have explained the
two terms as coming from the classic battles of earlier times that pitted a bull
against a bear.
5. Just about everyone who reads a newspaper or watches television news is familiar
with bull markets and bear markets. Most people dont concern themselves with
the origins of the words and their application to trading in company stock.
Investors act on the belief (or faith) that the market will continue to improve,
giving them incentive to become active.

6. On the other side of the coin, when investors feel that prices are going to drop or
see that they are in a downward trend, they do not hold the same positive outlook
and lose faith in the market temporarily. Reliable investment counselors and
financial advisers are quick to explain that bear and bull market assessments dont
Initial Public Offers and its effect on Stock Market

Page 48

adhere to any hard-and-fast rules. As with many financial and economic actions,
there is psychology of the individual to consider.

7. In other words, a person or group might act as if they are in a bear or bull market
based on their own assessment. If a significant number of investors act, the
combined weight of the action might push the market in a particular direction.
This could enhance a bear trend or bull trend, if not actually create the momentum
to start such a market. This could only be determined over a longer period of time
however, so hindsight is always better when assigning these terms.

8. The Great Depression was certainly an extreme example of a bear market because
the average price of stocks dropped almost out of sight over a three-year period.
Economists consider the period from the early 1990s to 2000 the longest bull
market. Numerous techniques are used to soften the blows of a bear market or to
take advantage of a bull market.


The easiest way to predict both types of markets is to realize that what goes up must come
down. That is, if the market is rising, then you know that at some point it will start to fall
again. Similarly, if the market is currently falling, you can be certain that eventually it
will pick up again. There are no precise ways to predict either bull or bear markets,
although general social economic situations can help you to determine what will happen.
A country which wages a war will experience bullish market conditions as government
contracts create more jobs and boost investor confidence if their expectation is to win.
Sudden international crises push the market downward and create bearish conditions.
News is very often a good indicator of where investors are headed. The reports will
inform about loss of investor confidence as well as sudden economic downturns that may
affect the market. If you notice from stock market research that several indexes have
changed by 15% to 20%, you can be sure that market direction is changing. When you
Initial Public Offers and its effect on Stock Market

Page 49

notice such changes, it is time to sit up and take notice. You may be headed for a bullish
or bearish market.
While referring to markets is either bull or bear is very general, there are certain types of
specific markets conditions that exist in both markets. For example, a bullish market is
often accompanied by a sudden increase demand for securities and smaller supplies of the
same securities. This is because more investors are willing to buy securities while fewer
wish to sell. This, of course, only pushes prices higher. The very opposite is true in a
bearish market.
The investor's behavior is another condition prevalent in both markets. In bullish markets,
there's a sudden increase interest in the stock market. More people are hopeful about
possible profits on the stock market and most people are optimistic about economic
conditions. In a bearish market, investors are not very confident and therefore invest less.
New investors often assume that they need to avoid investing during bear markets, and
invest heavily during bull markets. This is not the case. Experienced investors know that
you need to be able to invest in any sort of market condition, provided that you do so
wisely. Each investor has a different strategy for dealing with a bull market or bearish
markets. Many investors try to take advantage of bull markets by buying stocks as soon as
the market gets bullish, and then starting to sell when prices seem to have reached their
peak. The difficulty, of course, is that it is almost impossible to tell when the trend is
beginning and when it will peak. In general, investors can take more chances with the
market during a bullish phase. Since overall prices will rise, the chances of making a
profit are good.
In bearish market conditions, prices are falling and the possibility of loss is pretty good.
What is worse, it is not always possible to tell when bearish conditions will end.
Therefore, if you invest during such market conditions, you may have to suffer some
losses before bullish times return and you're able to realize a profit. For this reason, many
investors decide on short selling or fixed income securities and other more conservative

Initial Public Offers and its effect on Stock Market

Page 50

types of investment. Defensive stocks are another good option that remain stable during
bearish conditions. On the other hand, some investors see bearish market conditions as an
ideal time to invest in more stocks. Since many people are selling off their stocks -including valuable blue-chip stocks -- at low prices, it is possible to set up long-term
investments that will prove valuable during bullish times.

While every investor loves to see the upswing in prices during a bull market, the wise
investor will be able to handle a bear market as well. Whether you are just beginning to
invest or are an experienced investor, learning to deal with various market conditions you
need not panic but decide patiently on investment.
Securities and Exchange Board of India (SEBI) is an apex body for overall development
and regulation of the securities market. It was set up on April 12, 1988. To start with,
SEBI was set up as a non-statutory body. Later on it became a statutory body under the
Securities Exchange Board of India Act, 1992. The Act entrusted SEBI with
comprehensive powers over practically all the aspects of capital market operations.
1. To protect the interests of investors through proper education and guidance as
regards their investment in securities. For this, SEBI has made rules and
regulation to be followed by the financial intermediaries such as brokers, etc.
SEBI looks after the complaints received from investors for fair settlement. It also
issues booklets for the guidance and protection of small investors.
2. To regulate and control the business on stock exchanges and other security
markets. For this, SEBI keeps supervision on brokers. Registration of brokers and
sub-brokers is made compulsory and they are expected to follow certain rules and
regulations. Effective control is also maintained by SEBI on the working of stock
3. To make registration and to regulate the functioning of intermediaries such as
stock brokers, sub-brokers, share transfer agents, merchant bankers and other

Initial Public Offers and its effect on Stock Market

Page 51

intermediaries operating on the securities market. In addition, to provide suitable

training to intermediaries. This function is useful for healthy atmosphere on the
stock exchange and for the protection of small investors.
4. To register and regulate the working of mutual funds including UTI (Unit Trust of
India). SEBI has made rules and regulations to be followed by mutual funds. The
purpose is to maintain effective supervision on their operations & avoid their
unfair & anti-investor activities.
5. To promote self-regulatory organization of intermediaries. SEBI is given wide
statutory powers. However, self-regulation is better than external regulation. Here,
the function of SEBI is to encourage intermediaries to form their professional
associations and control undesirable activities of their members. SEBI can also
use its powers when required for protection of small investors.
6. To regulate mergers, takeovers and acquisitions of companies in order to protect
the interest of investors. For this, SEBI has issued suitable guidelines so that such
mergers and takeovers will not be at the cost of small investors.
7. To prohibit fraudulent and unfair practices of intermediaries operating on
securities markets. SEBI is not for interfering in the normal working of these
intermediaries. Its function is to regulate and control their objectional practices
which may harm the investors and healthy growth of capital market.
8. To issue guidelines to companies regarding capital issues. Separate guidelines are
prepared for first public issue of new companies, for public issue by existing listed
companies and for first public issue by existing private companies. SEBI is
expected to conduct research and publish information useful to all market players
(i.e all buyers and sellers).
9. To conduct inspection, inquiries & audits of stock exchanges, intermediaries and
self-regulating organizations & to take suitable remedial measures wherever
necessary. This function is undertaken for orderly working of stock exchanges &
10. To restrict insider trading activity through suitable measures. This function is
useful for avoiding undesirable activities of brokers and securities scams.

Regulation Of Business In The Stock Exchanges
Under the SEBI Act, 1992, the SEBI has been empowered to conduct inspection of stock
exchanges. The SEBI has been inspecting the stock exchanges once every year since
1995-96. During these inspections, a review of the market operations, organizational
structure and administrative control of the exchange is made to ascertain whether:

the exchange provides a fair, equitable and growing market to investors

the exchange's organization, systems and practices are in accordance with the
Securities Contracts (Regulation) Act (SC(R) Act), 1956 and rules framed there

the exchange has implemented the directions, guidelines and instructions issued
by the SEBI from time to time

The exchange has complied with the conditions, if any, imposed on it at the time
of renewal/ grant of its recognition under section 4 of the SC(R) Act, 1956.

During the year 1997-98, inspection of stock exchanges was carried out with a special
focus on the measures taken by the stock exchanges for investor's protection. Stock
exchanges were, through inspection reports, advised to effectively follow-up and redress
the investors' complaints against members/listed companies. The stock exchanges were
also advised to expedite the disposal of arbitration cases within four months from the date
of filing.
During the earlier years' inspections, common deficiencies observed in the functioning of
the exchanges were delays in post trading settlement, frequent clubbing of settlements,
delay in conducting auctions, inadequate monitoring of payment of margins by brokers,
non-adherence to Capital Adequacy Norms etc. It was observed during the inspections
conducted in 1997-98 that there has been considerable improvement in most of the areas,
especially in trading, settlement, collection of margins etc

The company traces its history back to 1860, with the publication by Henry Varnum
Poor of History of Railroads and Canals in the United States. This book was an attempt to
compile comprehensive information about the financial and operational state of U.S.
railroad companies. Henry Varnum went on to establish H.V. and H.W. Poor Co. with his
son, Henry William, and published annually updated versions of this book.
In 1906, Luther Lee Blake founded the Standard Statistics Bureau, with the view to
providing financial information on non-railroad companies. Instead of an annually
published book, Standard Statistics would use 5" x 7" cards, allowing for more frequent
In 1941, Poor and Standard Statistics merged to become Standard & Poor's Corp. In 1966,
the company was acquired by The McGraw-Hill Companies, and now encompasses the
Financial Services division.

Financial markets are helpful to provide liquidity in the system and for smooth
functioning of the system. These markets are the centers that provide facilities for buying
and selling of financial claims and services. The financial markets match the demands of
investment with the supply of capital from various sources.
According to functional basis financial markets are classified into two types.
They are:
Money markets (short-term)
Capital markets (long-term)
According to institutional basis again classified in to two types. They are
Organized financial market
Non-organized financial market.
The organized market comprises of official market represented by recognized








intermediaries. The unorganized market is composed of indigenous bankers,

moneylenders, individual professional and non-professionals.
Money market is a place where we can raise short-term capital.

Primary market is generally referred to the market of new issues or market for
mobilization of resources by the companies and government undertakings, for new
projects as also for expansion, modernization, addition, diversification and up
gradation. Primary market is also referred to as New Issue Market. Primary market
operations include new issues of shares by new and existing companies, further and
right issues to existing shareholders, public offers, and issue of debt instruments such
as debentures, bonds, etc.
The primary market is regulated by the Securities and Exchange Board of India (SEBI
a government regulated authority).

Coal India, a navratna public sector undertaking under the Ministry of Coal, Government
of India, is the largest raw coal producing company as well as largest coal reserve holder
in the world.

CIL operated 471 mines in 21 major coalfields across eight states in India as of March 31,
2010 producing non-coking coal and coking coal of various grades for diverse
applications. While non-coking coal is used in thermal power plants and the cement
industry, coking coal is largely used in metallurgical industry. In FY 2010, about 91.6% of
the total coal produced was of non-coking coal and the balance was coking coal.

CIL is largest coal producer in the country as well as in the world with its production for
FY 2010 at about 431.26 million tons, which represents 82% of Indias coal production.
Further the company is also the largest coal reserve holder in the world as of April 1,
2010, with about 18862.9 million tons of total reserves and 64218 million tons of total
resources. India is the worlds third largest producer and consumer of coal given strong
growth in economy. The demand for coal in the country is expected to grow to 713
million tons per annum in 2011-12 compared to 600 million tons per annum in FY 200910 on the back strong demand from sectors such as power and other energy intensive
industries such as steel and cement. However the countrys coal production is expected to
grow to 630 million tons by 2011-12, thus leaving a shortage of about 83 million tons.
Thus, if there is any limitation for growth it is the inability of the company to pace its
production inline with the demand growth for coal in the country.

Consolidated sales of the company for the fiscal ended March 2010 was higher by 14% to
Rs 46689.29 crore and the net profit was up by 142% to Rs 9833.70 crore, albeit on a
lower base. The EPS for the fiscal was Rs 15.2. The offer price band of Rs 225-245
discounts the FY2010 consolidated earning by 14.8-16.1 times, which is largely in line
with the P/Es at which other global coal majors (especially Asian) are trading. However,
while other global majors earnings are more sensitive to fluctuations and cyclicality in
coal prices, Coal Indias earnings are largely immune to global coal price fluctuations as
Indian coal prices as directly/indirectly determined/influenced by government and are

Page 75

much lower than international prices and their trend does not bear any relationship with
global coal prices. In that sense Coal India may be treated as utility company rather than a
commodity company. Other such Indian utilities like NTPC, Power Grid Corporation and
Gail trades around FY 2010 P/E of 20.

It is expected that there will be strong post-listing interest in the scrip even at higher P/E
multiple due to strong institutional (especially FII) demand as it is the only Indian stock
which gives exposure to the Indian coal industry and the scrips likely inclusion in leading
Indian and global indices. Thus scarcity premium and index company premium can spice
up the scrip post listing.

Coal India IPO Analysis Strong IPO Must Invest

A big-bang initial public offer (IPO) of shares by Coal India Ltd closed on Thursday with
a thumping collection of Rs 236,148 crore, 15.2 times the targeted amount, but it fell
short of a record set by Reliance Power Ltd set in January 2008. Reliance Powers
collections had totalled Rs 254,472 crore CIL will get to keep only Rs 15,745 crore of the
money offered, while the rest will be returned. Foreign institutional investors have bet big
on the issue and the refund is expected by some market experts to be put in other shares in
the market.

Both institutional and retail investors jumped in to take advantage of the issue, betting on
what many said was an attractive price and vast coal reserves underlying the company,
which is the worlds largest coal mining firm. The exact price is yet to fixed, but the upper
limit of the band is Rs 245 per share. The shares will list in November.
Institutional participation was on expected lines but retail participation is encouraging
for this size of issue, said Sanjay Sharma, head of equities at Deutsche Banks Indian
unit, one of the lead managers of the issue.
Every issue has its challenge but a great issue at a great price makes it easier to sell,

This chart shows the fluctuations between 01-09-2010 to 06-10-2010.
The below chart consists with both indices(NIFTY & SENSEX).

In this case study I found that from the above chart, the above chart clearly shows the
fluctuations in stock market indices. These indices show the fluctuations before the Press
Note Release of CIL. In this period investors dont have any knowledge about CIL IPOs.
They dont have any knowledge that CIL will issue IPO in the future.
In this period, the fluctuations of stock market indices are clearly shows that the market is
going in positive way. Sensex & Nifty both are showing in positive sign to stock market.
In this particular time period both indices are showing positive sign to investor to invest

money into the stock market. When both indices, are moving in positive way that time
countries economical position will be increased. And in this period all companies having
similar type of markets for there shares.
We can conclude from the above chart, the stock market is working normally and both
indices are showing positive sign to invest money into the market. In this particular time
period there is no effect of CIL because CIL not issued the press note at all in publication

Page 81

information related to CIL IPOs. Such as issues opening and closing date, date of
allotment of IPOs, refund of amount date, IPO price, premium, and etc..
In this time period the stock market fluctuations in starting days showing somewhat
negative sign but that negative sign in market is in common. When the date of issuing
will be coming soon those time in market the signs are falling down because investors
want to shift there investment from one companies to another. In this period investors are
selling there old securities to buy new securities (means CIL IPOs) in future in primary
market, thats why the indices are falling down more before two days of IPOs issuing.

So we can conclude that CIL IPOs effect is their in Stock Market. Thats why all investors
withdraw the amount before 2 days to buy CIL IPOs. The main reasons to buy CIL IPOs
are as follows;

Positive talk and news related to CIL IPOs.

India is the 3rd largest Coal Producer Country in the world.

Coal India Limited is Worlds Largest and Coal Producer Company.

One of the Largest IPOs issue.

CIL is undertaken by Government & etc..

There are so many other factors also influence the investors to buy the CIL IPOs.
Thats why all investors withdraws the amount. The all above factors influence the
stock markets in after press release. In this particular time period stock markets falling
down rapidly with the effect of CIL IPOs.

In the above chart, you can clearly observe that the fluctuations in stock market are very
high. And Both indices are reached at the lowest point of the 4 days and this point only is
lowest point of past 2 months of market. The main reason to fall down the both indices
reaches at the very least point of the past 2 months.
You can understand that CIL IPOs affects the more on stock market because all investors
want to buy the IPOs of CIL.

Investors also expected these IPOs will be gives good returns with in a short time period.
The actual PAR value means face value of each IPO is only Rs. 10/- but the premium
only contained before issuing of IPOs is 235. This is also one of the positive sign to
invest money in CIL IPOs.
So in this period all investors are withdraws their money from other securities and invest
that money into the CIL IPOs. That is the main reason to fall down the Stock Market to
least of the past 2 months.

1. An IPO company is difficult to analyze since there isn't a lot of historical info.
2. An IPO is the first sale of stock by a company to the public.
3. It can be observed that CIL IPOs affects the more on Stock Market.
4. A strong IPO can effects the more on Stock Market.
5. A Single strong IPO can effects the all other companies.
6. A strong IPO can change the investors mind set to invest money.
7. The costs of an initial public offering are small as compared to the costs of
borrowing large sums of money for ten years or more.
8. An IPO is a costly undertaking. A typical firm may spend about 15-25% of the
money raised on direct expenses. Even more resources are spent indirectly
(management time, disruption of business).
9. Only few companies were able to perform positive returns at the end of 1 year.
10. Only few companies can gain the excess capital with in the short time.
11. Investors mind set attracted towards investment of an IPO on the basis of image,
popularity, positive talk & news & etc.. information related to IPOs.
12. Only few investors will consider the technical factors of IPOs.
13. The investor faces limited risk in the secondary market. He is adequately
protected from counter party risks by the stock exchange. But he needs much
more protection and safeguards in the primary market.
14. According to my study the investment done in the securities by the investors


mainly done only by the image of the company but not on the basis of the
fundamental analysis.
15. A strong IPOs effect is also limited time in Stock Market,
16. Investors evaluate an IPO maximum from Promoters of the company, prevailing
Market Trend & Recent IPO performance & Issue Size of the IPO and minimum
from Suppliers of the company, Listing in Well Known Stock exchanges & Media

The investment in IPO can prove too risky because the investor does not know
anything about the company because it is listed first time in the market so its
performance cannot be measure.
Investors of the secondary market must take part in the primary markets as it
has been seen that IPO activity in Indian Stock Market has been tremendously
growing. And IPO is the safest stock market investment.
On the other hand it can be said that the higher the risk higher the returns earned.
So we can say that the though risky if investment is done then it can give higher
returns as well.

For example- we can take the example of Coal India Limited.

The Investors invested in huge amounts with the faith that they will get good
returns but nothing happened so when the IPO got listed. So one should think and
invest in IPO.
Primary market is more volatile than the secondary market because all the
companies are listed for the first time in the market so nothing can be said about
its performance.
If higher risk is taken, it is always rewarded with the higher returns. So higher the
risk the more the returns rewarded for it.
We can fairly predict the future, but cant make it happen as it is.
Initial return given by the IPO should not be treated as indication of its success or
failure in the long run.
Investors of the secondary market must take part in the primary markets as it has
been seen that IPO activity in Indian Stock Market has been tremendously
growing. And IPO is the safest stock market investment.
Over subscription should be treated as indication of success of the issue.
Investors must analyze all the sectors before investing in the IPO, in order to get
maximum returns.
Investors should take into consideration the promoters of the business, the
prevailing market trend & Recent IPO performance before investing in an IPO.
Though IPO is considered as a safe investment avenue but it is very important to
make thorough fundamental study of any IPO before taking the decision. As

Initial Public Offers and its effect on Stock Market

Page 93

sometimes a fundamentally strong company may not provide good returns due to
some reasons as in case of Cairn India Ltd.
Before taking an IPO investment decision it is very necessary to study the stock
market behavior at that time since it can have a vital bearing on the listing of IPO.
It is very important to study the company individually irrespective of the growth
potential of the sector. It is evident from the different IPO performances of Idea
cellular Ltd. & Spice Communications Ltd. even when they both belong to the
growing Telecom sector.
Companies issue their shares information through newspapers prospectus. The is
not reached to illiterate persons. Then illiterate person also become the investors
in the company this is useful to be company as well as public.
IPO is used by a company to raise its funds. The extra amount obtained from
public may be invested in the development o f the company, although it costs a
little to a company but it gives a way to get more money for long term

Broadly speaking, companies are either private or public. Going public means a
company is switching from private ownership to public ownership.
Getting in on a hot IPO is very difficult, if not impossible.
The process of underwriting involves raising money from investors by issuing
new securities.
Thus we have studied about the organization and various forms of organizations.
How the funds can be raised is studied so as to know the effective way of
accessing capital for the organization.
The study about IPO and its methods helped us to know the different ways of
going for an IPO.
Analysis of financial markets helped to know about the various types of markets.
The advantages and disadvantages of going for an IPO are studied.
Thus the overall knowledge about IPO is gathered.
An IPO company is difficult to analyze since there isn't a lot of historical

This is the amount of stock in an initial public offering (IPO) granted by the
underwriter to an investor.
Trading in the IPO subsequent to its offering is called the aftermarket.

Board of Directors
The composition of the Board of Directors is particularly critical for an IPO.
Typically, a board is composed of inside and outside directors.
Broken IPOs

equity calendars, bond calendars and municipal calendars.

First Day Close
The closing price at the end of the first day of trading reflects not only how well
the lead manager priced and placed the deal, but what the near-term trading is
likely to be.
When a company is publicly traded, a distinction is made between the total
number of shares outstanding and the number of shares in circulation, referred to
as the float. The float consists of the company's shares held by the general public.

Green Shoe
A typical underwriting agreement allows the underwriters to buy up to an
additional 15% of shares at the offering price for a period of several weeks after
the offering. This option is also called the over allotment and is exercised when
the IPO is oversubscribed and trading above its offer price. The term comes from
the Green Shoe Company, which was the first to have this option.

Hot Issue
When there is significantly more demand than supply for an IPO it is said to be a
hot issue.

Initial Public Offering
This is the event of a company first selling its shares to the public.

Initial Public Offers and its effect on Stock Market

Page 98

Management, directors and significant stockholders are regarded as insiders

because they are privy to information about the operations of a company not
known to the general public.
IPO Price
Individual investors often ask why the price at which an IPO starts trading is
different from its offer price. This occurs because the offer price is set by the
underwriters before the stock starts trading. Once the stock starts trading, the price
is determined by actual supply and demand and can be higher or lower.
IPO Research
Prior to the offering, the underwriters involved in the IPO are prohibited from
issuing research or recommendations for forty days. Following the IPO, the
underwriter is allowed to issue a research report

Market Capitalization
The total market value of a firm. It is defined as the product of the company's
stock price per share and the total number of shares outstanding
Market Value
The market value of a company is determined by multiplying the number of
shares outstanding by the current price of the stock.

Offering Price
This is the price at which the IPO is first sold to the public. It is set by the lead
manager, usually after the close of stock market trading the night before the shares
are distributed to IPO buyers. In the case of some foreign IPOs, the pricing occurs
over the weekend.
