IPO / QIP / Pre IPO ( Equity & Debt listing ) / Right Issue
With the rapid increase in investment activities in India, stock markets are seen favourable for both raising capital and making money. An Initial Public Offering (IPO) refers to the first time a company publicly sells shares of its stock on the open market. The proceeds from the sale of stock shares in an initial public offering provide the issuing company with capital. A primary market is one that issues new securities on an exchange. The primary markets are where investors can get first crack at a new security issuance. The issuing company offers its equity to investors or groups and receives proceeds from the sale, which is then used to fund operations or expand the business. It is the largest source of funds with long or indefinite maturity for the company. For a company, the capital earned from selling its shares to the public act can act as a major boost the the business' growth, making the idea of an initial public offering attractive.
In a qualified institutional placement, money is raised by issuing securities such as equity shares by the issuing company only to QIBs i.e. Qualified Institutional Buyers. Naturally then the company doing a QIP must already have its shares listed on a stock exchange. Basically under QIP the equity shares are offered for subscription to Institutional Investors called as Qualified Institutional Bidders (QIB) & since the public at large are not involved, it requires minimum regulatory compliance & thus it is much faster than an FPO. QIPs help Indian companies raise capital in India, and in turn they help make Indian markets more competitive and efficient. They have been around since about 2006; before that, Indian companies often tapped foreign markets via American depository receipts (ADRs) for capital. QIP was introduced to encourage Indian companies to raise funds domestically and also to prevent the undesirable export of the domestic equity market as a result of International financing.
