What is an IPO?
IPO stands for initial public offering in which a particular company decides to go public by selling some of their shares to people and in exchange gets the money.
Why companies go public?
When a particular company gets in a good position and has recognition in the country or state they apply for IPO, not every company does this.
If a company is in need of funds they prefer for initial public offering, there are many reasons for a company to raise funds via IPO like filling up debts or increasing their production, building more assets, etc.
Does every company apply for IPO?
No, only the companies who are in need of funds for any reason apply for ipo.
But the reason is not the same in every case, when any startup in the initial stage gets backed by good investors and the particular startup becomes a well-known company, they are financially very strong to grow on their own.
In such cases, there is no need to raise funds from individual investors, but applying for an IPO doesn’t mean that the company is facing any issue so they need people’s help! Once a company goes public it shares are available to trade in the open market I.e the company gets listed in the stock market.
And nowadays people’s expectations towards a particular company has increased. any company the product they are using or they like their ideas etc, they want that company to grow and they can see it growing. And we know where it happens! the stock market is the only place where people see companies’ growth and today the investment craze is so high, that the markets are carried by the bulls, seems all bears are hibernating 😬.
