An initial public offering (IPO) or stock market launch is a type of public
offering where shares of stock in a company are sold to the general public
for the first time.
This is done by offering those shares to the public, which were held by the
promoters or the private investors.
This is why doing an IPO is also referred to as "going public."
IPO’s are often issued by smaller, younger companies seeking capital to
expand, but can also be done by large privately-owned companies looking
to become publicly traded.
