The term IPO (initial public offering) is the first time a private company offers their shares to the general public. This transition is defined as an IPO when a private company files for listing on the stock market thus, becoming a public limited company or (PLC).

Companies can raise equity capital with the help of an IPO by issuing new shares to the public or the existing shareholders can sell their shares to the public without raising any fresh capital.

The company which offers its shares, known as an ‘issuer’, does so with the help of investment banks and investment brokers. After IPO, the company’s shares are traded in an open market. Those shares can be further sold by investors through secondary market trading.
