In Fixed Price IPO, the company fixes the issue price at which the initial sale of the share offering is done.

In a book building offer, a price band is offered by the issuer. The lowest share price is called the floor price and the highest share price is called the cap price. The investors can bid on prices between this price band.

You need to follow some steps before investing in IPOs. These steps are as follows:

- Make the Decision:
The first step is to decide the IPO in which you want to subscribe. You can make a rational decision by analyzing the Draft Red Herring Prospectus of the company that is offering the IPO. The prospectus of the company will allow you to make an informed decision.

- Arrange for Funding:
The next step in the process is to arrange funds for the IPO. The investor can utilize his/her savings to subscribe to a company’s IPO. HNI clients can avail IPO financing through us to increase their quantum of allotment during IPO.

- Get a Demat Account:

Note that: It is mandatory to approve the block mandate else your IPO application will get rejected. In some cases, there may be some delay in the request to appear on your UPI app.

- Bidding Process:
The application for an IPO is made through the bidding process. The process considers something called the “Lot Size” specified in the company’s prospectus. The Lot Size is the minimum number of shares for which an investor has to apply for in an IPO.
A price range is pre-decided and investors have to put the bid within the price range. The funds are required to be blocked while bidding. The amount deposited in the banks for IPO generates interest until the process of allotment is started.

- Allotment of shares
The final step is allotment. If the demand for the shares surpasses the number of shares offered, one may receive lesser number of shares than the applied quantity. The amount for which the shares have been allotted gets debited from the blocked amount while the remaining is released. After the allotment of shares, they are credited to the Demat account of the investor. Finally, when the stocks are listed in the share market, investor can sell his holdings.
