Elevate Your SME: 10 Easy Steps to Launch Your IPO with PlanifyIn the dynamic realm of entrepreneurship, elevating your small or medium-sized enterprise (SME) to new heights often involves strategic decisions that profoundly shape your business trajectory. One pivotal milestone is the decision to take your company public through an Initial Public Offering (IPO), a transformative step that provides access to capital and enhances visibility, credibility, and growth prospects. Planify offers comprehensive solutions to streamline the IPO process and empower SMEs to embark on their public listing journey with confidence and ease.

Over the past 3 years, main board IPOs have demonstrated remarkable strength, with 63 Indian companies going public in 2021, raising INR 1.2 lakh crore. Despite global challenges, 2022 witnessed 40 IPOs accumulating INR 60,000 crore, and by November 2023, 48 companies had gone public, raising over INR 45,000 crore.

This IPO surge extends to the SME space as well, with 2023 breaking records with 179 IPOs, raising more than INR 4,200 crore. Many were substantially oversubscribed. Top-performing SME IPOs include RBM Infracon, Gayatri Rubbers & Chemicals, and many more.

SEBI’s strategic move to reduce IPO listing timelines from T+6 to T+3 days is a significant step towards streamlining the IPO process, making it more attractive for both issuers and investors.
