Adding more heat to Australia’s raging IPO market this September is telecommunication software provider ActivePort Group Limited (ASX:ATV), which is set to hit the ASX on 27 September 2021.

ActivePort is in the business of building innovative software products used for synchronising data connections between offices, factories, etc. to core cloud computing services. The firm generates revenue by licensing its software on a per-connection basis, selling data transit capacity on its SD-WAN aggregator network and providing managed services to customers.

Key details of the IPO

The company is planning to go public by listing its shares on the ASX on 27 September 2021. It has lodged the prospectus with the ASIC (Australian Securities and Investment Commission) on 13 August 2021 and opened the issue for subscription on 23 august 2021. The last date for the subscription was initially set at 6 September 2021, but in a supplementary prospectus filed on 6 September 2021, the company extended the date to 10 September 2021.

How to buy ActivePort shares

To invest in any IPO after it gets listed on the ASX, you  need to have an account with a registered broker or lead manager. Make sure your broker allows you to apply for IPO, as some discount brokers omit this facility and only allow to buy IPO from the secondary market once it gets listed. After opening your account, you can apply for ActivePort shares directly via your broker’s platform.

If you somehow miss the IPO application, you can buy the same shares after they get listed on the ASX. Once you open an account with a registered stock broker, you have to fund your account with a bank transfer, debit card or any other medium which your broker allows, after which you can transact in the secondary market.

ActivePort IPO is hitting the ASX on 27 September 2021, at 11:30 AM AEST. A few other important IPOs that are about to make a debut this month are Alvo Minerals Limited (ASX:ALV) on 24 September 2021, Copper Search Limited (ASX:CUS) on 15 September 2021 and Culpeo Minerals Limited (ASX:CPO) on 10 September 2021.

Bottom lime

If you are looking to buy ActivePort shares, the date for the subscription for IPO has already passed. But you can always transact in the secondary market once the IPO hits the local bourse.

However, the company has a very limited history of operations and its growth significantly depends on customer relationships. The economic risk due to rising cases of COVID-19 may also pose a risk in the near future, therefore, investors should do their own due diligence before investing
