Syrma SGS Technology's IPO came after a lull for two and half months amid a slowdown in the IPO activities due to factors such as geopolitical tensions, macroeconomic headwinds, market volatility, and growing concerns about interest rate hikes. The weak performance of companies like Life Insurance Corporation (LIC) of India, Rainbow Children's Medicare, Prudent Corporate, AGS Transact, and Ethos prompted several companies to defer their IPO plans.
