What is an IPO and how it works

IPO is a process of offering shares of a private corporation to the public in a new stock issuance. Why go public? The primary benefit of going public is easier access to capital.

To go public, a company must have a track record of growth and other favorable results and hire an investment bank (Goldman Sachs/ Leerink & Co./ Evercore ISI in Amylyx Pharmaceuticals case) to come in and underwrite the IPO. The underwriters also performed due diligence and verified financial information and business model.

Once the paperwork done, the company sells the stock to institutional investors. When the initial block of shares has been sold, the company with underwriters' help sets an initial price and date for the stock to begin trading on a stock exchange.
