What is an IPO?
An IPO is a process by which a private company becomes a public company by offering its shares to the public for the first time. Through an IPO, a company can raise significant capital by selling shares of stock to investors. In India, the process of an IPO is governed by the Securities and Exchange Board of India (SEBI), and it requires careful planning, execution, and legal compliance.
