How to buy international stocks in Canada

What’s an IPO?

Companies stage an initial public offering (IPO) to raise capital and to reward early investors, officers and workers who’ve been given ownership shares. In a public offering, shares are sold via an underwriter, with most going to large institutional investors and select high-net worth investors.

In rare cases, the average retail investor may be invited to participate, but most will have to wait until shares are trading on an exchange.

On this page you’ll see 2 other kinds of initial offerings:

  • Direct listings: In a direct listing, a private company sells existing shares held by employees or private shareholders on an exchange with no intermediary. The price per share depends upon how willing existing shareholders are to part with their shares.
  • SPACs: In a SPAC merger, a company seeking to go public merges with a special purpose acquisition company (SPAC), a blank check company with no operations other than to bring a private company public. This saves the private company time and effort, and it may increase its eventual share price. Public investors can buy into SPACs before the merger, but they rarely know what company a SPAC will take public.
