Veranda Learning IPO Review

Though the management claims that it is a very niche player in online/offline learning solutions, its operations with high losses raise concerns. Many investors have burnt their pockets with investments in loss-making unicorn/tech companies in the recent past and hence caution is needed. There is no harm in ignoring this IPO.

It run up so much. It was closed UC both in NSE & BSE even during the sell off on Friday, some chances are there to go up. However, I would not recommend for refresh buy (since it may come down a bit upto next acquisition or fund raise news)

Yes, you may sell in BSE on Monday, no issues (even if you would have bought in NSE, selling in BSE is possible).

p.s: you may don't have to sell since its showing loss in your trading account as @arunARUN indicated. that was not a true loss.

Thanks for the info. I searched and found that 'Veranda' promotors founded 'SSI' and it was merged with 'Aptech'. 'Veranda' is a new company by the same promoters (reputed Kalpathi Aghoram group)

MRavi how are you valuing this business at 800 crore? Even if this stock is a start up .. this valuation is mind boggling. I don't know what am I missing here?

Valuations are high, however, they have several learning solutions which are growing & expected to grow faster. (personally, as the promotors are genuine, I took risk in applying here).

103.2. Noorul |   Link |Apr 12, 2022 2:37:36 PM
@blick. You only missed one thing. That this is Indian stock market and here everything is possible. Loss making company like veranda can give u decent listing gain while profit making car trade swallow the investor wealth like cheese pizza.
Valuation must b crying somewhere in the corner :)

@mravi sir. Yes, nomura must have tools like algorithmic hft trade platforms to identify gaps b/w exchange and quickly trade based on arbitrage between exchanges. So far seems they didn't buy. may be they are happy with 2.4 cr they made on selling 10 lakh at 160.

@Ravu, noorul. thanks for info. I always thought QIB and anchors can only sell after one month. This selling at 125 seems pre-planned act like in coolcap to make it open lower and accumulate more on pre-listing. otherwise why someone sell at 125. The sold shares may go from their one pocket(dmat) to another..
