Initial Public Offer (IPO)

Initial Public Offer (IPO) is a process through which a privately held company first time goes to the public to raise funds for its business needs and get listed at the stock exchanges. This process results in to:

  • The company shares get listed at stock exchanges.
  • Stock market investors can start trading shares of the company on a day-to-day basis.
  • The company gets funds for future projects or to pay the debt.
  • Promoters who sell their own shares; get money.
  • Investors get the opportunity to buy the share of the companies in the early stage.

IPO offers a great opportunity to buy shares of the company in the early stage of its journey at stock exchanges. IPO shares usually have a huge demand. Many IPO's get 100+ times bid for shares. In India, retail investors have a reserved portion in an IPO. A fixed 35% IPO Shares are reserved for retail investors. This reservation increases the chance of allotment of IPO shares. Some retail investors use this to buy IPO shares for listing gains only, instead of holding the shares for the long-term.
