      Wait and see what happens in the next few days. You will get a chance to take part in the IPO after the bookbuilding tomorrow.

      Also do read their prospectus.

  • I guess first of its kind in Pakistan. But I seriously doubt Systems limited being 300 Crore worth company. Maybe I am wrong. Anyways, good luck System Limited. Set the bar even higher than this and we’ll support you.

      First of its kind? What about NETSOL?

      As for their net worth, simply read their prospectus on the website. All IPO companies publish one.

      • I guess NETSOL never had an IPO. Correct me if I am wrong.

          Then, how did they end up on the Karachi Stock Exchange? Has been traded since May 2005!
