What Is An IPO? - Other Classified Ads in Faridabad
IPO stands for initial public offering and sometimes called ?going public?. It?s the first time a company sells stock to the public. Before an IPO, a company is private with a few shareholders, typically the founders and sometimes professional investors.
A company "goes public" for a number of reasons, but primarily to raise capital to expand and grow operations. If the company's plans are successful, the stock price should rise, rewarding early stock investors.
An IPO can also be an opportunity for venture capitalists and other early investors to cash out and take profits.
