Abstract

Given India’s growing importance as a major emerging market, understanding the initial public offering (IPO) market in India is important in itself for the global investor. In addition, by providing an institutional context that is largely similar to the US setting but different in a few small yet critical ways, as well as by changing the regulations related to IPO offerings, the Indian IPO market provides a testing ground for broader finance questions. Over the last couple of decades a growing body of empirical research has focused on the Indian IPO market with occasionally interesting findings. This chapter attempts an eclectic survey of this literature, stringing together a set of diverse inquiries relating to IPOs in India.
