Before digging into the upcoming IPOs, let’s first have a look at What is IPO? and Why do companies launch an IPO? What are the specific reasons for IPO listing?

What is IPO?

IPO or Initial Public Offering is a way for the company to offer its equity shares to the public. Before the IPO, the shares of company are restricted mostly to the inside circles like directors or some initial investors who invested in the company in their early stages. You can also request investment in early stages but the company is not obliged to take your investment and issue you shares.

Simply talking, IPO is the first event in the company’s history where the equity shares of company are allotted to public at a scale.

Companies raise IPOs for one or many of the reasons as listed below:

  • Raising money from public gives access to funds to company to fuel its growth and operations.
  • Some companies raise IPO to pay their pending debts/liabilities.
  • Some companies raise an IPO to increase their brand exposure to general public.
  • IPOs help in fuelling acquisitions which are also a growth instrument.

So, a Company basically needs additional funds to enhance its business or clear its dues or build a brand identity. Sounds interesting! Isn’t it!
