What is the difference between Book Building Issue and Fixed Price Issue?
Book Building is a process followed by a company when it plans to go for an IPO or FPO. This is essentially done to determine the best price in the market.
In a Book Building process, a company sets a floor price and securities are offered at prices above or equal to the floor prices, whereas, in the other case, securities are offered at a fixed price. During the Book Building process, the demand can be known every day as the book is built. But in the case of a Fixed Price Issue, the demand of the issue is known only after its closure.
