Domestic companies seems set to get on with the huge fund raising exercise this year with plans to raise over Rs 50,000 crore via public offers, driven by the sharp recovery in the stock market.

.

Almost 50 companies have already filed the draft prospectus with the market regulator, the Securities and Exchange Board of India (SEBI).

This depicts at the healthy prospect of the strong IPO market after the encouraging revival of IPO market in 2009.

.

Indian companies had raised about Rs 20,000 crore through IPOs in 2009.

.

Market Experts feel that fund raising can go up to Rs 50,000 crore this year since Government has already planned to sell shares in a host of public sector companies by way of IPOs and follow-on public offers (FPOs).

.

Five companies aiming to raise over Rs 300 crore have already received the regulator’s clearance for the IPO, if draft prospectus filed with the SEBI is anything to go by.

.

“The IPO pipeline looks strong in 2010.

Also the way the government is pushing ahead with the disinvestment plan, fund raising can go up to Rs 50,000 crore by the end of the year,” SMC Capitals Equity Head Jagannadham Thunuguntla said.

.

As part of its disinvestment plans the government intends to raise over Rs 20,000 crore by way of FPOs of NMDC, SAIL, NTPC, and REC.

.

Some of the prominent private companies which have their IPOs lined up, beside this, include Jindal Power, BPTP, Reliance Infratel, Emaar MGF etc;

.

“Of the total IPOs that are in the pipeline, as many as 16 are from real estate sector. However, their success is a bit doubtful as the appetite for realty IPOs are currently less,” Thunuguntla added.

.

Primary market fund raising in 2008 saw 30 IPOs mopping up Rs 17,000 crore, but shares of many these companies gave the investors modest-to-good returns.
