What is an IPO?

IPO is short for Initial Public Offering. It refers to the first time a company offers its equity shares to the common public for investing. A company that wishes to list itself on the stock exchange issues an IPO, wherein the shares offered are subscribed by retail and institutional investors.

After the IPO is subscribed, shares are allotted and then listed on the stock exchange from where investors can trade in them. An IPO is a way for companies to raise funds and their promoters to dilute their stakeholding.
