The different ways of going public

IPO

We speak of Initial Public Offerings (IPO) as a company’s shares are going public for the first time and can thus be bought by investors. The listing on a Stock Exchange allows any corporation to raise capital from public shareholders. In an IPO, the company shares are underwritten by an intermediary (e.g., a broker).

DPO

A DPO is a direct listing process designed for companies that want to go public but without expensive intermediaries. Instead, they sell the shares directly to everyday investors (e.g., employees, family members, customers etc.). In this way, a firm can raise capital without paying the services of a broker and self-underwrite their securities.
