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 two 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.

Pros and Cons

  • If you can get in before a stock is traded on the exchange, you get a fixed price that often moves up quickly when the stock enters the market.
  • You get in early on new companies with big plans for growth that can lead to big stock-price gains.
  • Interest is likely to be high, particularly with a brand-name company, which will raise the stock price.
  • The share price can be volatile around the time of an IPO, and if you buy on the market, you may be overpaying.
  • Even the pre-IPO price may be too high, and the price may fall instead of rise.
  • New companies can be risky as big plans for growth often do not work out.
