CL Educate Ltd IPO Review – Should you invest in it?
Now the market is at its top, many companies are coming up with IPOs and IPOs are being over-subscribed too. So, we cant see big growth in the balance sheet of the company, but as the company is telling that they will reduce debt, if they can reduce debt profit will automatically increase. Now hopefully the IPO will be marginally over-subscribed and subscribers can see some listing gain too. I suggest you be cautious as the IPO likely not going to be a star performer as this one: Avenue Supermarts IPO Date Declared – Should You Invest In It?
