What is an IPO?

IPO is an acronym for Initial Public Offering. Through an IPO, a company will sell its shares to institutional buyers and retail buyers in the primary market. There are two exchanges – BSE and NSE – in India. A company’s shares get listed in either or both the exchanges after the IPO. Private companies become public listed companies after an IPO.
