What Is IPO?
Initial Public Offering (IPO) is a process through which any company initially(first time) offers shares to all investors (institutional or big investors, retail investors(common people). Through IPO, a company is actually letting common investors to be part of their company through investing their individual money.
When a company decides to file for an IPO, it will issue shares in public domain with a predetermined price band(Rs.50, 100, 200 etc.), investor who thinks that this company is worth investing, they will apply for its IPO. Hence, the name Initial Public Offer(IPO).
Why Companies Open IPO’s?
Companies launch IPO for various reason it can be for raising capital (money), avoiding debt or loan, this can be helpful in growth ,expansion, increasing production, manufacturing units, manpower etc.
Before understanding why does company launch IPO it becomes really important for you to know small difference between share market and stock market:
There are two kinds of share market, the Primary market and the secondary market.
- In the primary market a company gets registered to issue shares and raise money from public or other investors.
- Any company enters primary market to raise capital and the first issuance of share for raising capital is known as IPO (Initial Public Offering).
- Once the shares are sold in the primary market it enters the secondary market for trading. In the secondary market the investors can enter into position or exit as and when they feel like. Any trader or investor now can easily though there fingertips trade or invest its money.
This whole process where one bids for shares, is referred to as the Primary Market. On the other hand when the stock gets listed and debuts on the stock exchange, the stock starts to trade publicly.
This is called the secondary market. Once the stock gets listed it gets traded daily on the stock exchange. Now you can start buying and selling stocks regularly.
Below image represents the same in totality of how share market works step by step.
Let us understand this through an simple example:
Suppose you are owner of a shoe making company, The business is running from last 5 years and you build it with certain other people from scratch. You are producing shoes locally and distributing it in your nearby areas. People are liking it, you came to know through feedback about the demand of your product in different metro cities.
One day you thought of increasing the capacity as well as the manufacturing units. For this you need more manpower as well you may need to acquire land, machine and other requirements.
As you are running the business it will have certain cost attach to it. It can be borrowed from banks, But what if you have borrowed much already? Will the banks still provide them loans?
Any-which ways banks has given you money on interest that you need to pay. So you can’t ask for more now, all your friends or colleagues who are partner in the company does not have enough funds.
The idea seems to be perfect, but how you will going to do that?
For this you need money, The prospects of your company looks good, especially in the booming online industry. Applying for IPO and solve your capital expenditure problem looks like a solution. The reason for any company to go public is to raise funds in order to expand their business & infrastructure or to repay any loans.
This money helps companies in various ways, For example:
- The money that gets generated through IPO helps in growth and expansion.(increasing production, manufacturing units, manpower etc.)
- Through IPO company can also avoid more debt or loan, which increases more profitability.(lesser debt means lesser interest to pay)
- Due to share listing a company credibility also gets increased, which helps to obtain better terms when seeking funds from banks or large investors.
- One more important thing which can be called negative for investors but positive for company is risk. By involving large people they are reducing risk to their business, as being investor you own certain percentage(as you hold shares of that company), if company fails to delivery in future, there shares may hit, company valuation will be down and your money will be lost.
Take this truth as ‘pinch of salt’ but it’s indeed true that you are now part of the risk as a part of the business. But this is also truth that no business can happen with zero risk.
You might have heard of a famous Bollywood Hindi movie inspired by the life of Dhirubhai Ambani named Guru, in which he goes to public to give funds so that he can expand his business, similar to that happens when company launches IPO. By the way reliance went for public offering in the year 1977.
