IPO, which stands for Initial Public Offer, is the process through which a company or corporate entity enlists itself on the stock market and goes public i.e. raises funds from a large number of investors. The main purpose of an IPO is to raise fresh capital for various business purposes like growth, diversification and more. Notably, holding equity shares of a company is akin to possessing a stake in the ownership of the company. Once the shares of the company are listed, they are available for free trade in the secondary financial market. There are majorly three categories of investors who participate in an IPO, namely Qualified Institutional Buyers, Non-Institutional Investors and Retail investors. In order to rein in the investors and convince them about the prospects of the company, a prospectus is drafted before the IPO. This includes detailed information about various segments such as financial records, future plans for the company, potential risks in the market and expected share price range. Once the market regulator SEBI (Securities and Exchange Board of India) and stock exchange i.e. BSE, NSE etc. approve this, the company is all set for its public debut. For a retail investor to be able to invest in IPOs, it is mandatory that they have a PAN card and a functional Demat account. More
