An Initial Public Offering (IPO) is a process through which a private company offers its shares to the public for the first time. This process is mainly done by smaller companies that intend to seek capital in order to expand, but it can also be used by certain large companies which are privately owned and seek to become publicly traded.
The IPO process is a long process that entails a series of tasks by the issuing company, the lead underwriter, and the syndicate members. The expertise of the underwriter plays a huge role in shaping the IPO process. This blog discusses how to apply for any IPO through Samco Star Back Office.
