I am not talking about Angel Investing but investing in SME IPOs

Sorry about that, guess you are talking about this - ,

SME’s have slightly lesser listing regulation compared to the regular listing on NSE. These companies may not be as financially stable as a regular company going in for IPO.

It is the same way as you would analyse the genuineness of a listed company. We assume the financial statements reflect the accurate financial position of the company, more so since its signed off by and auditor.
