TaxBuddy to raise 105 crores through an IPO!
The year 2022 has been volatile for the stock markets. Stock markets have been volatile globally, owing to the tensions in Europe between Russia and Ukraine. Also, the high inflation is keeping the stock market returns subdued. Startups have been particularly affected in this volatile environment. We have seen startup stocks like Zomato Paytm and Cartrade fall more than 50%.
In the backdrop of this volatile environment, SSBA Innovations is coming with an IPO. The firm runs the tax portal, TaxBuddy. The firm has filed a 105 crores IPO with SEBI, the stock market regulator in India.
