Generally, companies offer IPO to raise money and get access to liquidity by offering their stocks or shares to the public. In India, certain IPO processes are stipulated by stock exchanges. Companies have to abide by these processes and check whether their shares are eligible to be publicly traded. This process is often complicated, but we have summarized it for you in layman’s language.

1. Hiring an Underwriter or Investment Bank

To start with the IPO listing, companies seek the help of financial experts who verify the vital financial parameters of the company and sign an underwriting agreement. The underwriters assure the company about the capital being raised and act as intermediaries between the company and its investors.

An underwriting agreement is composed of the following components:

  • Details of the deal
  • Amount to be raised
  • Features of securities being issued

2. Registration

The next step is the preparation of a registration statement along with the draft prospectus. The prospectus is also known as Red Herring Prospectus (RHP) and has to be submitted mandatorily as per the Companies Act.

The key components of RHP are:

  • Definitions — Contains the definitions of the industry-specific terms.
  • Risk Factors — Discloses the possibilities that could impact a company’s finances.
  • Use of Proceeds — Discloses how the money raised from investors will be used.
  • Industry Description — Details the working of the company in the overall industry segment.

SEBI is a market regulator that verifies the disclosure of facts by the company. In case the application is approved, the company announces a date for its IPO allotment.

4. Application to the Stock Exchange

Next, the company writes an application to the stock exchange for floating its initial issue.

5. Creating a Buzz by Roadshows

Before allotting its shares to the public, the company creates a buzz (or awareness) in and around the market through roadshows and campaigns. Over two weeks, the executives and staff of the company will advertise the impending IPO across the country.

6. Pricing of IPO

The company can now initiate pricing for IPO. It is done either through Fixed Price IPO or by Book Binding Offering. In the case of Fixed Price Offering, the price of the company’s stocks is announced in advance. In the event of Book Binding Offering, a price range of 20% is announced, following which investors can place their bids within the price bracket.
