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.
