Initial Public Offer (IPO)

Initial Public Offer or IPO is a set of stocks which company sells to the public for the 1st time. In this process, the company gets listed on the stock exchange where its stock begins to trade. Privately help companies become publicly traded company once IPO process is over.

The private company brings IPO (or sell their shares) to raise funds for upcoming projects, pay debts, sell promoters holding or simply to get advantages of listing at the stock market.

For investors, IPO offers a great opportunity to buy shares of the company. Retail investors have a fixed quota (35% reserved in most cases) in an IPO. This reservation increases the chance of getting more shares of the company. Some retail investors use this to buy IPO shares for listing gains only, instead of holding the shares for long-term.
