Zomato Limited’s shares plunged to clock a new 52- week low after they witnessed selling pressure this week, due to the end of the one-year lock-in period post listing. For a period of one year after the IPO, promoters, founders, employees and other shareholders who held Zomato’s shares before the IPO was not allowed to sell their shares. Once the lock-in period ends, there is a risk that they might sell a huge quantity of shares, putting the stock under pressure.

The lock-in period of a few other companies is also ending in the next month, just like Zomato:
