What is an IPO or public issue?
An initial public offering (IPO)/public issue is when an unlisted company makes either a fresh issue of securities or an offer for sale of its existing securities or both for the first time to the public. This paves the way for listing and trading of the issuer’s securities.
The shares are initially issued in the primary market at an offering price determined by the lead manager(s)/the merchant banker(s) to the IPO.
The primary market consists of a syndicate of investment banks and broker dealers that the lead managers assemble and that allocate shares to institutional, high net worth individuals (HNI) and individual/retail investors.

2. What is a price band?
As far as IPOs are concerned, a price band is a value-setting method whereby a seller indicates an upper and lower cost range, between which the buyers/investors are able to place their bids. The price band's floor and cap provide guidance to the buyers.
Who decides the price band?
It is up to the company to decide on the IPO price or the price band, in consultation with the lead managers.
The basis of IPO price is disclosed in the offer document.
The issuer is required to disclose in detail about the qualitative and quantitative factors justifying the IPO price.
How is the IPO price determined?
The IPO price is normally based on such factors as the company’s financials, products and services, income stream as well as the demand for the shares and current market conditions.
The lead managers must determine a fair offering price, which takes into consideration the need for the company to raise capital while offering the new issue at a price which represents a fair value of the shares.
5. What is a Red Herring Prospectus?
A Red Herring Prospectus (RHP) is a document submitted by a company (issuer) as part of a public offering or an IPO of securities (either stocks or bonds).

9. How can investors know the number of shares allotted to them?
In case of fixed price issues, investors are intimated about the CAN/Refund order within 10 days of the closure of the IPO.
In case of book built IPOs, the basis of allotment is finalised by the book-running lead managers within two weeks from the closure of the issue.
The registrar then ensures that the demat credit or refund as applicable is completed within 6 working days of the closure of the issue.
10. Which are the reliable sources for me to get information about response to IPOs?
In the case of book-built issues, the exchanges (Bombay Stock Exchange/National Stock Exchange) display the data regarding the bids obtained (on a consolidated basis between both these exchanges).
The data regarding the bids is also available category-wise.

How do I know if I am allotted shares? And by what timeframe will I get a refund if I am not allotted?
Investors are entitled to receive a Confirmatory Allotment Note (CAN) in case they have been allotted shares within 6 working days from the closure of a book Built issue. The registrar has to ensure that the demat credit or refund as applicable is completed within 6 working days of the closure of the book-built issue.
The lead managers also publish an advertisement at least in an English national daily with wide circulation, one Hindi national paper and a regional language daily circulated at the place where registered office of the issuer company is situated.
12. How long will it take after the issue for the shares to get listed?
The listing on the stock exchanges is done within seven days from the finalisation of the issue.
Ideally, it would be around three weeks after the closure of the book-built issue.
In case of fixed price issue, it would be around 10 days after closure of the issue.
