But, before we discuss the DEWA IPO opportunity, let’s first understand the basics of an IPO.

What is an IPO?

IPO is an abbreviation of the word Initial Public Offering. It is a process by which a privately held or a government-owned entity offers a part of the ownership to the general public.

It is an opportunity for individuals and institutional investors to acquire a stake in upcoming or established companies at a fair market value before being listed on the stock exchange.

Once the subscription and allotment are complete, the company is listed on a stock exchange like Dubai Financial Markets(DFM), Bombay Stock Exchange(BSE), New York Stock exchange(NYSE), London Stock Exchange(LSE), etc...

You can freely trade in the company’s stocks/shares when listed on a stock exchange at the market price.

Why Companies Go Public?

One of the most common goals of companies is to grow. But companies typically reach a certain threshold or a glass ceiling, beyond which it would be not easy to grow without more resources, notably capital.

Imagine Apple’s Market Cap if it was still owned only by the initial promoters, friends, and family. Do you think it would have touched 3 Trillion Dollars?

Very Unlikely!

The growth of Apple as one of the favorite technology brands also may not have been possible.

So the listing of Apple on NYSE and Nasdaq enabled it to raise large sums of money. They could invest this money in Innovation, Production, and Marketing, making it one of the biggest companies in the world.

So, now we understand that an IPO is an ideal solution for companies looking to raise capital.

It helps them grow, expand, diversify, innovate, acquire, and take on opportunities and risks they could not otherwise afford.

Now Let’s discuss the DEWA IPO opportunity.
