The number of IPOs so far this year has come down on a year-on-year basis, but in terms of returns, investors have earned better from these IPOs. IPOs have delivered an average of 50% returns in 2022 so far, while the Sensex has gained just 1.6%. Companies have raised a total of Rs 38,155 crore from 51 IPOs so far this year, although companies had raised Rs 64,768 crore from 55 IPOs in the same period last year.

What is an IPO?
When a company offers its shares to the public for the first time, it is called IPO. This IPO is issued by companies so that they can come in the stock market. After entering the stock market, buying and selling of shares of the company can be done in the stock market. Once the company’s shares are allowed to trade, then they can be bought and sold. After this, the investors share in the profit and loss arising from buying and selling of the stock.
Why does the company issue an IPO?
When a company needs money to expand its business, it issues an IPO. This IPO company can issue even when it is short of funds, it wants to raise money from IPO instead of taking loan from the market. After getting listed in the stock market, the company raises money by selling its shares. In return, the people who buy the IPO get a stake in the company. Meaning when you buy shares of a company, you are the owner of the purchased part of that company.
