The Public Offering of shares occurs when a company decides that it wants to go public. There are two types of public offerings: the well-known OPV – Public Offer of Sale – and the unknown IPO – Initial Public Offering. The basic difference between the OPV and IPO is that while the former refers to companies already listed, and one or more shareholders wants to sell their shares, the IPO applies to companies that have never been quoted in any market.
Why do companies invest in the stock market? The simple answer is that investors are enticed by the money. These funds, which stock corporations acquire from the IPOs can be used to make new investments or grow the business. As the share price rises, investors have the chance to make profits from equity investments. These are often young companies that have great potential and are in an expansion phase.

Why investors need to be more cautious when buying Unlisted Shares
Stock exchanges pay more attention to IPOs. The rule of thumb is that the more well-known an IPO firm, the higher the interest in its IPO business. Many investors find the possibility of making high-drawing profits the first day they trade fascinating. If the stock is very popular, this is possible. Investors who purchased shares at the issuance price before the IPO can expect a high initial quote (=first quotation) when the exchange trading begins. The initial quote for the Facebook share was nearly 11% higher than its issue price. The paper was forced to take some serious losses in the months and weeks following the stock market listing.
