IPO Process in India: Detailed Guide

Initial Public Offering (IPO) is not a new term in India. But it has certainly boomed after the web series SCAM 1992. After watching the success story of Harshad Mehta everyone is searching for the IPO Process in India. We all want to either invest in the stock market or sell our IPO in the stock market.
This blog is for all those small companies who want to release their IPO in 2021. Let’s start with a quick introduction:

What exactly is an IPO?
Initial Public offering in simple terms is the first issue of private company shares. Whenever a company decides to go public it offers to sell its shares at a pre-defined price. By this process, the investors of the company also get a chance to become shareholders in the company.

The shareholders earn dividends when the company grows along with the capital return in case the demand for the share increases. Every private limited company gets a choice to either go public or stay private. There is a well-defined process which a company has to follow before going public. Let’s have a look at the process in detail:

IPO Process in India

Stage 1: Appoint an Investment Bank

An organization looks for direction from a group of underwriters or investment banks to begin the cycle of IPO. Usually, they take administrations from more than one bank. The group will contemplate the organization’s present monetary circumstance, work with their resources and liabilities, and afterwards they intend to oblige the financial requirements.
An underwriting contract will be signed, which will have all the details about the arrangement, the sum that will be raised, and the securities that will be given. Despite the fact that the writers guarantee on the capital they will raise, they won’t make guarantees. Indeed, even the investment banks won’t bear all the dangers associated with cash development.

Stage 2: Register with the SEC

The Company and the writers, together, record the enlistment statement, which includes all the financial information and marketable strategies of the organization. It will likewise need to announce how the company will use the assets it will raise from the IPO and the plan about the protections of the public venture.

In the event that the enrollment proclamation is agreeable with the tough rules set by the SEC, which guarantees that the organization has unveiled everything that potential investors should know, after that point it gets a green sign.

Or, more than likely it is sent back with remarks. The organization should then chip away at the remarks and document for enlistment once more.

Stage 3: Draft the Red Herring Document

An underlying plan, which contains the estimation of plausible price per share and different insights about the IPO, is imparted to the individuals who are associated with the IPO. It is known as a red herring document on the grounds that the primary page of the outline contains a clear warning which expresses that this is certifiably not a final plan. This stage tries things out for the IPO among the expected investors.

Stage 4: Go on a street show

Before the IPO opens up to the world, this stage occurs over a thrill-packed fourteen days. The chiefs of the Company travel around the nation promoting the impending IPO to the expected investors, generally QIBs. The plan of the advertising incorporates the introduction of raw numbers, which will find the best revenue.

Stage 5: Time to decide the value of the IPO

In light of whether the Company needs to skim a Fixed Price IPO or Book Building Issue, the cost or value band is fixed. A fixed value IPO will have a fixed cost in the request report, and the book building issue will have a value band inside which an investor can offer. The number of shares that will be sold will be chosen. The Company ought to likewise choose the stock trade where it is going to list their offers. The Company requests that the SEC declared the registration statement as useful, so that buys can be made.

Stage 6: Available to people in general

On an arranged date, the outline and application structures are made accessible to the public, on the internet and offline. Individuals can get a form, from any assigned banks or representative firms. When they fill in the subtleties, they can submit them with a check, or on the internet. SEBI has fixed the time of accessibility of an IPO to the general population, which is typically 5 working days.

Stage 7: Going through with the IPO

After the IPO cost is finalized, the partners and underwriters cooperate to choose the number of shares each investor will get. Financial specialists will normally get full securities except if it is oversubscribed. The offers are credited to their Demat account. The discount is given if the offers are oversubscribed. When the securities are allocated, the share market will begin exchanging the Company’s IPO.

And that was a simple 7 step process of how companies release their IPO.

What are The Advantages of Incorporation of a Company?

 

Confused about registering your business? Looking for the advantages of incorporation of a company? This article is perfect for you.

Do you know as per the latest report by inc42.com; an average of 15,472 startups got recognition under the Startup India programme launched by our Prime Minister.

Today we all want to work for our own business instead of working for any other person’s company. This is the reason we all are witnessing the growth of startups in our country. 

“So you got an amazing idea for your startup, you came up with the perfect plan to grow it into a successful business and you tried to pitch your idea to a few investors also but they didn’t show much interest so what’s next? “

If you want your potential investors, customers, and employees to take your startup seriously then the first thing you need is to incorporate your company legally. An incorporated startup has more authority and trust as compared to an unregistered startup. 

Our Article is too long to read? You can watch our complete video on the advantages of incorporation of a company:

 

 

Following are 5 advantages of incorporation of a company that will help you to stand out:

 

Create a separate business Identity

If you register a company in India; your company will be declared as a separate legal entity. The following stakeholders can play a major role in the decision making of issues related to the company:

  1. Director: Person who will be managing and controlling the company 
  2. Promoter: Person who actually initiated the setup of the company
  3. Shareholder: Person who has ownership of the company

Assistance in capital generation

You are going to need capital (money) to run your business. You will have two options to get capital:

First is equity capital; which means a person can raise funds through the public. Equity funding is a good option if you want to stay debt-free.

The second option is taking debt in the form of a loan or credit from a bank or private money lending company.

If you have a registered firm then in both cases you will get an upper hand. Your investor (both a bank or public) will found that you are actually serious about your startup and you have already declared it as a legal entity.

Constant Existence

The incorporated company will exist no matter what happens to its owners, directors, shareholders, members, or employees. Moreover; if one of the shareholders or the owners wants to end the company that won’t be possible. One thing to note here is; sometimes the owners or shareholders together decide to end the company. In such cases, the company’s life comes to an end after deciding mutually.

Perpetual existence of companies is beneficial at the time of long term profit planning and growth strategy of the company. The efforts and hard work of all the members of the company can not go waste because one person decided to walk out.

Transfer of ownership of the company  or shares smoothly

If a company is under proprietorship no one can transfer the shares or ownership of a company under any circumstances. But if it is a registered company then you can always transfer the ownership to another person legally by following the right procedure. 

The shareholders also have the authority to encash their shares anytime they want. There are a few restrictions in a private limited company but in a public limited company transfer of share is an easy process.

Limited Liability 

When a person is a sole trader or a proprietor then all the liabilities of the company come on his/her head. Running a business under proprietorship can be risky. But on the other hand; if you are working as an incorporated company then you don’t have any liability on your head. 

A company is a separate entity hence; no single person will get the responsibility or blame for any negligence or issue. Another important aspect here is; all the debts on the company can not be the debt of the owner, director, or shareholder. 

Over to you!

We hope now you must have a clear idea of the advantages of incorporation of a company. If you own a startup and you want to register your company in India then we are here for your assistance.

The Corporate Hub has a team of skilled CS and CA professionals with amazing experience of working with all business niches.
