So we can clearly see from the company’s financial figures that the revenue of the company has become doubles between the period of 2012-2016. The profit after tax (PAT) was in negative in 2012, but we have seen steady recovery in the profits also. The company also managed to reduce its debts.

The objects of Music Broadcast Limited IPO (Radio City IPO) are:
1) Redemption of listed NCDs.
2) Early redemption of JPL NCDs and repayment / pre-payment of JPL ICDs.
3) General corporate purposes.

Now, the market is in peak, so we are seeing floods of IPOs. It looks like this company will also manage to post gains in listing. But in general I suggest to exit Music Broadcast Limited IPO (Radio City IPO) after booking listing gains. In case we see Mutual Funds or Insurance Companies are bidding for this stock, we can hold some more but overall I am looking to Music Broadcast Ltd IPO as a short term opportunity.
