  3. 3. IPO  An initial public offering (IPO) is the process through which a privately held company issues shares of stock to the public for the first time. Also known as "going public," an IPO transforms a small business from a privately owned and operated entity into one that is owned by public stockholders. In an IPO, the issuer obtains the assistance of an underwriting firm, which helps it determine what type of security to issue (common or preferred), the best offering price and the time to bring it to market.
  4. 4. HISTORY The earliest form of a company which issued public shares was the publicani during the Roman Republic There is evidence that these shares were sold to public investors and traded in a type of over-the-counter market in the Forum, near the Temple of Castor and Pollux . The shares fluctuated in value, encouraging the activity of speculators, or quaestors.
  5. 5. HISTORY(CONT) In March 1602 the “Vereenigde Oost-Indische Compagnie (VOC), or Dutch east Indian company was formed. • The VOC was the first modern company to issue public shares, and it is this issuance, at the beginning of the 17th century, that is considered the first modern IPO. • The company had an original paid-up share capital of 6,424,588 guilders. • Each share was worth 3000 guilders (roughly equivalent to US 1500$).  In the United States, the first IPO was the public offering of Bank of north America around 1783
  6. 6. ADVANTAGES When a company lists its securities on a public exchange, the money paid by the investing public for the newly issued shares goes directly to the company (primary offering) as well as to any early private investors who opt to sell all or a portion of their holdings (secondary offering) as part of the larger IPO. An IPO accords several benefits to the previously private company: Enlarging and diversifying equity base Enabling cheaper access to capital Increasing exposure, prestige, and public image Attracting and retaining better management and employees through liquid equity participation Facilitating acquisitions (potentially in return for shares of stock) Creating multiple financing opportunities: equity, convertible debt, cheaper bank loans, etc.
  7. 7. DISADVANTAGES There are several disadvantages to completing an initial public offering: Significant legal, accounting and marketing costs, many of which are ongoing Requirement to disclose financial and business information Meaningful time, effort and attention required of senior management Risk that required funding will not be raised Public dissemination of information which may be useful to competitors, suppliers and customers. Loss of control and stronger agency problems due to new shareholders
  8. 8. Procedure 4. Throughout the 3. 2. To assemble an underwriting team 1. To select the underwriter •Consisting of attorneys •Independent of •Best Effort •Financial printer •Firm commitment •All or non •Bought deal accountants prepare an initial registration statement according to SEC regulations SEC review company also begins making controlled efforts to market the offering. After a successful offering, the underwriter meets with all parties to distribute the funds and settle all expenses. At that time the transfer agent is given authorization to forward the securities to the new owners.
  9. 9. PRICING IPO A company planning an IPO typically appoints a lead manager, known as a bookrunner, to help it arrive at an appropriate price at which the shares should be issued. There are two primary ways in which the price of an IPO can be determined. Either the company, with the help of its lead managers, fixes a price ("fixed price method"), or the price can be determined through analysis of confidential investor demand data compiled by the bookrunner. The effect of "initial underpricing" an IPO is to generate additional interest in the stock when it first becomes publicly traded. The danger of overpricing is also an important consideration. If a stock is offered to the public at a higher price than the market will pay, the underwriters may have trouble meeting their commitments to sell shares.
  10. 10. QUIET PERIOD • Under American securities law, there are two time windows commonly referred to as "quiet periods" during an IPO's history. The first and the one linked above is the period of time following the filing of the company's S-1 but before SEC staff declare the registration statement effective. • In terms of an IPO, the period where an issuer is subject to a SEC ban on promotional publicity. The quiet period usually lasts either 40 or 90 days from the IPO.
  11. 11. DELIVERY OF SHARES For most small businesses, the decision to go public is made gradually over time as changes in the company's performance and capital needs make an IPO seem more desirable and necessary. But many companies still fail to bring their plans to sell stock to completion due to a lack of planning.

It was once at the top of the toy market, competing with Toys ‘R’ us and the others and giving as good as they could get. The prices of a share should have been somewhere around the $10-$12-mark on opening in 1999. But, the final offering ended up at $20. The IPO OF eToys, at the time, was the fifthbiggest debut in history, giving a start-up with just $35 million in revenue a bigger market capitalization than Toys 'R' Us, which at the time had $11 billion in sales.

  17. 17. Largest IPOs #10: Bank of China (PINK:BACHY) isn’t even listed on a major U.S. exchange, but its 2006 IPO topped $11.2 billion. As the name implies, it’s a massive China financial operation #9: Deutsche Telekom (PINK:DTEGY) is another pink sheet powerhouse that offered stock elsewhere and not on major U.S. exchanges. Proceeds from the 1996 IPO topped $12.5 billion at the time. If adjusted for inflation, this IPO would be even higher up the list, too.
  18. 18. Largest IPOs #8: Nippon Telegraph and Telephone (NYSE:NTT) is now offered as an ADR, or American Depositary Receipt, for domestic investors. But at the time of its 1987 IPO, the company wasn’t available on the NYSE.

The tally was a total $22.1 billion in proceeds.
  21. 21. Largest IPOs #1: General Motors (NYSE:GM) might surprise you as the top IPO in history. The $23.1 billion public offering of GM stock back in 2010 was performed, in part, to pay back the government. At the time, Uncle Sam owned a 61% stake in the automaker. Unfortunately, the feds didn’t recoup as much cash as they had hoped. Ultimately, taxpayers lost money on the automaker bailouts despite GM’s recordbreaking IPO.
  22. 22. 2013 IPO Calendar Square - Starbucks in August partnered with Square in a $25 million deal that lets the mobile payments company process all of the coffee giant’s debit and credit transactions. Square should continue gaining popularity as the “” industry takes off. Besides being a major player in this up and coming industry, Square is often thought of as a takeover target. Tableau Software – This Seattle, WA-based company could be the next big cloud IPO. Tableau is a datavisualization company which devises programs that turn complex databases into graphics and maps. Over 10,000 companies including Apple Inc. (Nasdaq: AAPL) and CocaCola Co. (NYSE: KO) use Tableau products, and after the success Workday and Splunk had many are expecting Tableau to have similar results.
  23. 23. 2013 IPO Calendar Silver Spring Networks- Located in Silicon Valley, Silver Spring Networks sells cloud-based, power grid management hardware and software to utility companies. In 2011 its revenue grew 238% and it almost went public branded as a green energy company, but put the deal on the shelf after the Solyndra scandal and has since repositioned itself as a cloud company involved in “cleantech.” But, with the success SolarCity Corp (Nasdaq: SCTY) had in its 2012 IPO, things are looking up for green energy. Add that to the success enterprise software, or cloud companies have had, and Silver Spring’s IPO looks very promising.
  24. 24. 2013 IPO Calendar Glam Media- Glam Media is a vertical-media company with entertainment and lifestyle Websites and blogs mostly geared toward a female demographic. The company generates revenue through ads and has been profitable since 2010. Glam continues to grow through acquisitions and currently has 356 million unique visitors per month to its site. In June of 2012 Glam was rated the #1 digital lifestyle Website in the world by comScore.
  25. 25. 2013 IPO Calendar Rapid7 & WhiteHat Security- One or both of these companies could be the next huge cyber security play, as both are thought to go public in 2013. Rapid 7 saw its revenue grow by 75% in the third quarter of 2012 and continues to expand its product portfolio. WhiteHat was founded by a former Yahoo! Inc. (Nasdaq: YHOO) information security chief, and dozens of Fortune 500 companies rely on WhiteHat for protection. As the world becomes more complex, uncertain, and digital, expect cyber security companies to grow in importance and value. Plus, both of these are prime takeover targets by larger security and defense firms
  26. 26. 2013 IPO Calendar Dave & Buster’s- In October it pulled its IPO off the shelf, but keep an eye out for an offering some time in 2013. The company provides the best arcade and gaming experience for adults and was hoping to join other restaurant companies such as Bloomin’ Brands Inc. (Nasdaq: BLMN) and Chuy’s Holdings Inc. (Nasdaq: CHUY) that have had successful IPOs this past year. Twitter- This would be 2013′s biggest tech IPO, and after Facebook’s debacle, Twitter’s IPO may really define social media investments. Recent announcements though indicate a Twitter IPO may have to wait until 2014. The company recently said it expects to generate up to $1 billion in revenue by 2014, and there’s always speculation that it could be acquired by Google (Nasdaq: GOOG) or another company. Its revenue model is still a little shaky but Twitter has proven to be able to monetize mobile users much quicker and effectively than Facebook.
  27. 27. Upcoming IPOs to Avoid Pinterest & Tumblr- Both of these companies face issues similar to Facebook’s in terms of generating profits and revenue from their user base, as well as monetizing mobile users. Pinterest has not proven its business strategy is legitimate and has even admitted it does not know how to turn its user base into profits. While just as popular as Pinterest and Facebook, Tumblr is an even riskier IPO to consider, and generates minimal revenue. Even though both sites are incredibly popular, their fate as public companies could easily follow Facebook’s path. LivingSocial- The vouchers Website might go public in 2013, but its business structure is too similar to Groupon Inc.’s (Nasdaq: GRPN), which has done awful since its IPO. After touching $30 on its IPO day, GRPN immediately began to sell off and currently trades around $5. If LivingSocial has an IPO make sure to avoid it.
