Upcoming IPOs in 2020

What a year has it been for IPO’s, nothing for 6 months and then boom, 5 IPOs in a span of 2 weeks.

Happiest Minds, Route Mobile, UTI AMC, Likhita Infrastructure and Mazagon Dock Shipbuilders, so now let’s look at,

Upcoming IPOs

Into the last quarter of the year, things are set to get even more interesting and bigger.

Life Insurance Corporation ( LIC)

Easily the rockstar of the pack, this is bound to be the biggest IPO in India, set to shake the stock market from its slumber. LIC is a 100% government-owned company and a shining jewel among other government owned companies. The privatization was announced in the Union Budget 2020.

The speculation amongst analysts is LIC’s valuation will be between 8 – 10 Lakh Crores as the government plans to sell off 10% stake in the company. This will make the LIC IPO the biggest in Indian history with IPO size being anywhere between 80,000 to 1 Lakh Crores.

Till 2000, all LIC application processes were also done offline. So if you ever had to buy a policy, the only way to do so was through an LIC agent and there were a million of them in 2000. Cut to now and many private players have entered the insurance space. LIC is strong fundamentally and even today and even today 7 out of 10 insurance policies sold are of LIC. For insurance freshers it is still the preferred choice.

LIC is a mammoth corporation with several lucrative investments in companies like IDBI Bank, ITC, Yes Bank and other such, if they do well, LIC will do well.

Burger King India

Burger King, a popular fast food chain from the USA started its operations in India in the year 2014. It has formidable competition from McDonald’s which enjoys a 42% market share in the fast food segment.
