An Initial Public Offering (IPO) is one of several strategies used to grow a private company's capital structure. The IPO is the first sale of a private company's stock to the public. IPO is often referred to as a company "Going Public". It requires filing a registration statement with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC).
Having an IPO, or going public has the potential of raising a substantial amount of money to help a company grow and expand. The IPO can raise large sums of money for the company to grow and increase market value since price-equity ratios are generally much higher for public companies. In addition, having stock available to the public offers more opportunities to early investors in terms of liquidity and diversification of personal holdings.
