How is the IPO price determined?

Answered by Luca Fisher | 6 months ago 1 Answer

The IPO price is typically determined through a process of price discovery, involving discussions between the lead manager and the company. Factors such as the company's financial performance, growth prospects, industry trends, and investor demand are taken into consideration. The goal is to find a price that balances the company's capital-raising objectives with market conditions and investor appetite. Once determined, the IPO price is announced in the prospectus.

Why do companies IPO?

Answered by Lily Ellis | 7 months ago 1 Answer

When a company goes public, it also gives private investors (founders/family/venture capitalists/angel investors) a chance to realise their investment and take some profits off the table. Going public also allows a wider audience to invest in the company moving forward.
