The initial public offering (IPO) of Mumbai-based Prince Pipes and Fittings Ltd will be open for subscription from December 18, till December 20. The issue comes just after the recently-concluded successful IPOs of CSB Bank Ltd and Ujjivan Small Finance Bank Ltd and, hence, may attract a lot of attention from primary stock market investors trying to cash in on the recent IPO frenzy.
