Abstract

The pricing of IPO’s in the short-term has been analyzed by several theoretical and empirical studies referring to the world’s major stock markets. Studies have also observed that IPOs cause increase in price considerably on the first day of trading and provide huge returns to investors who buy at the initial offer price and sell immediately in the secondary market. This research presents the results of the analysis related to the short-term performance of the Indian IPOs under study. Event study methodology is used to analyze the short term performance of IPOs from January 2016 to December 2022 issued in Bombay Stock Exchange (BSE), India. The average positive return on the listing day is 18.5 percent which indicates that the IPOs are underpriced.
