IPOs are a way for unlisted companies to list themselves on the stock exchange. It is through IPOs that the unlisted companies can offer their shares to the public for subscription. There are various benefits that companies can get from issuing their IPOs, and some of these are listed below:
- The company can raise considerable capital from the public and fund its growth.
- By going public, companies can promote themselves and get noticed by market analysts and investors.
- Companies can attract talented employees once they become listed.
- It becomes easier for investors to trade in shares listed on the stock exchange. This, in turn, increases liquidity and makes the company’s shares popular.
The primary market is the platform where companies launch their IPOs. After that, once the IPO has been subscribed to, the shares get listed on the secondary market. That is, on the stock exchanges, where they can be traded.
In India, BSE and NSE are the leading stock exchanges on which the stocks are listed post-allotment.
Are IPOs suitable investments?
IPOs are very attractive for investors as they allow them to invest in reputable businesses and become part-owners. Investors who want to bank on upcoming companies with good potential can subscribe to new IPOs for attractive returns on their investments. However, one should remember that even though they have subscribed to the IPO, the shares still might not get allotted to them. It is because, most often, IPOs are oversubscribed by the public. So the company allows its shares randomly, and the excess subscriptions are refunded to the investors.
Are there any upcoming IPOs?
As mentioned earlier, in recent years, many companies have gone public by offering their IPOs. Leading chains and companies like Burger King, Mazagon Dock Shipbuilders, Mrs Bectors’, etc., have launched their IPOs in the year 2020.
