First let’s understand the basics of IPO, The full form of IPO is Initial Public Offering. IPO means when a private company is listed in the share market for the first time and that share goes to sell for the first time. Apply for the IPO process is given below.

After releasing the IPO, the private company does not remain private, That company becomes public because it also involves public money.

Why does any private company come out with an IPO (Initial Public Offering) and sell its shares? To understand this, let me understand you with an example. Suppose I have a company of 100 crores, Which means its valuation is Rs. 100 crores. now I want to internationalize this company, for which I will need 25 crores. Where should I get it now for Rs 25 crore? If I take a loan of 25 crores from the bank, then it will suffer a lot.

If I take a loan from the bank, then interest will also have to be paid instead of 25 crores, due to which I will also suffer financial loss. So better get my company listed in the share market. After this, I will release the IPO (Initial Public Offering) of my company, after which people will buy the shares of my company and that money will come directly to me so that I can take my company further.

What are The Benefits of Buying an IPO?

Here are the Benefits of Buying Initial Public Offering

  • Buy Cheap & Earn More
  • Price Transparency
  • More Groth Chances

Buy Cheap & Earn More – Whenever a company enters the share market, releases IPO (Initial Public Offering) , then the shares of that company are available at the lowest price in general and after some time the price of those shares increases by 2 to 3 times.

Price Transparency – Another advantage is that there is price transparency. That is, the price of that shares will be written in the auto document. So those who are small level investors and those who are Big investors will have the same information related to that shares.

More Groth Chances – The third advantage is that whenever the company releases the IPO (Initial Public Offering), then either the company is thinking of expanding itself or is thinking of getting a loan, then in a way the company is going to move forward. So there are a lot of chances for that shares to increase in price and that company to grow. So in short, there is a risk of sinking your invested money and there is a lot of chance that your money will be 2/3/4 times more.
