IPO, The term IPO stands for Initial public offerings. It is a proper mechanism by which, privately held companies become publically traded by offering shares to the public for the first time. IPOs or Initial Public Offerings are a process through which companies raise capital from retail and institutional investors by going public and listed on the secondary exchanges. The company which offers the share to the public is known as the “issuer”.

What is IPO? :-

Initial public offering (IPO) can be described as the process in which, by selling a portion of its stake to investors, a private company or organization can become public. In general, an IPO is introduced to infuse the business with new equity capital, to promote easy trading of current assets, to collect capital for the future, or to monetize existing stakeholders' investments. The company gets its name listed on the stock exchange via the IPO. A number of reasons are there for a company to go public. But the most common reason is a company wants to raise capital and expand its operations.

What is IPO cycle and how it works? :

Till now we have covered basic parts like what is  IPO?  Now moving forward we will talk about what is an IPO cycle? So, the IPO cycle runs like, the company first seeks approval through SEBI (Securities and Exchange Board of India) and files a document known as the prospectus, which includes the details of the public offer and the details of the business. Post which, the investors can apply in multiples of the prescribed lot size to apply for the offer.

How have IPOs performed in the recent past?

In the last calendar year, already 12 companies have raised nearly Rs 25,000 crore through IPOs this year so far compared with Rs 12,363 crore raised by 16 companies in 2019. COVID-19 produced accelerated opportunities in sectors like pharma, chemicals, and IT in India, for which many companies required growth capital to fund their expansion plans. Some promoters also took note of the liquidity flush and sought an exit through primary markets.

The IPOs in the past few months of the year have actually performed notably well and have provided handsome returns to subscribers.
