How Did the IPO Go?

The institutional investors subscribed 115 times, and the retail individual investor section recorded 10.5 times of subscription and the wealthy investor section registered 184 times.
This IPO performance can primarily be attributed to its recent financials and strong management. The margins of Tarsons Products have been impressive, backed by a strong cash flow. Additionally, this IPO is likely to make the company debt-free.

Tarsons Products – A Company Overview
TPL is an Indian medical consumables manufacturing company engaged in designing, developing, manufacturing and retailing such products. Tarsons Products caters to a global clientele that includes research organisations, pharmaceutical companies, hospitals and diagnostic chains, laboratories, and CROs or contacts research organisations.
As of March 2021, the company has a product portfolio entailing more than 300 products and 1700+ SKUs. In addition, TPL has 5 manufacturing facilities and a global distribution network that allows it to ship its products to more than 40 countries.
What Is Causing This Slump?
It is difficult to pinpoint what exactly is causing this sudden downward trend of a stock that performed relatively well after its debut. However, experts believe that, since TPL primarily depends on imports for its raw materials, any issue here can hurt its manufacturing.
Additionally, overreliance on export is an issue as well for Tarsons Products. Therefore, the inability to manage this supply line can also be an issue. Additionally, the rising oil prices have increased the cost of transportation, affecting the company’s revenue in the coming quarters.
Moreover, with rising COVID-19 cases around the world, countries are again imposing lockdown norms that can further escalate this situation.
Market researchers and analysts still hold a positive outlook on the company. On the grounds of anonymity, a market analyst of a leading brokerage firm has commented that this IPO will make Tarsons Products debt-free.
However, the valuation has not been settled yet, and it looks expensive. Hence, investors who have a long-term vision can hold on to this stock, but the ones looking for listing gains should get out and make a profit.
A closer analysis of Tarsons Products’ financials will show that the company has been doing quite well. Therefore, a tough period like this is not likely to damage the company in the long run. In addition, it is operating in a sector that will only expand in the coming years.
Nonetheless, if you are planning to invest in the shares of Tarsons Products, go through every detail and conduct thorough market research before making any move.
