Dear Reader, 
The Panorama newsletter is sent to Moneycontrol Pro subscribers on market days. It offers easy access to stories published on Moneycontrol Pro and gives a little extra by setting out a context or an event or trend that investors should keep track of. 
Indian equity markets are witnessing tremors in stock prices of start up unicorns that listed amid great fanfare about a year ago. Reason: it is the end of promoter lock-in for most of these companies.
Beginning with the FSN E-Commerce Ventures, the owner of Nykaa, over a dozen companies’ shares will be released from the one-year promoter lock-in period over the next few weeks. Nykaa’s strategic five-for-one share bonus issue perhaps arrested the anticipated meltdown in its stock price today. Even so, the stock is hugely down from its record listing price, after adjusting for bonus.
One has already experienced huge sell-offs in such situations in start-ups such as Zomato earlier this year. The Street is now buzzing with speculation on the impact of stake sale by promoters and strategic investors at the end of the lock-in period, on stock prices. Investors are nervous. Shares of several start ups such as One 97 Communications (Paytm), PB Fintech (Policy Bazaar), Fino Payments Bank, Delhivery, Sapphire Foods, Go Fashion, Shriram Properties, which listed about a year ago, are all down significantly today(at the time of writing this piece).
Also, the macroeconomic milieu is not encouraging for domestic equity markets. And the unicorns have little to showcase in terms of strong profitability and earnings traction. While there are a few exceptions, most of these firms have already faced a rout in their stock prices as recent quarterly results (post-IPO) did little to justify their sky-high valuations.
The start up IPO saga has riled retail investors in 2022. It has also pushed the markets regulator to tweak rules on fund raising and listing, in the name of protecting the retail investors’ interest.
Indeed, there is no conclusive answer to how the end of a lock-in period could affect stock prices. Some may prosper if fundamentals are good, others may struggle and give investors a run for their money. Volatility in stock prices is, however, certain and it is good for retail investors to stay out till the dust settles.
