How to make money in IPOs

  • For retail investors, in case of over subscription, it is important to note that allotment is done on a lottery basis. Therefore, it is advisable to apply for lots from multiple family accounts rather than applying for more lots from a single account.
  • In order to increase the chance of allotment, it is advisable to place the IPO bid price at a cut off as opposed to selecting a lower price for the IPO. This implies that you are ready to buy the stock at the decided final price.
  • Grey market premium (GMP) refers to the premium at which the people are ready to pay for the shares even before the stock is listed on the exchange. A high GMP signifies a higher demand in the market and benefits from getting more listing gains and is also an indicator of how the IPO will behave in the market.

For further details, you can refer to the Red Herring prospectus. You are highly advised to thoroughly read the risk factors before applying.
