An IPO, or initial public offering, is the process by which a privately held company begins selling stock to outside investors, thus becoming a public company. From that point on, the company can raise the capital it needs by selling shares, but it must also comply with a strict set of reporting guidelines, as established by the Bangladesh Securities and Exchange Commission (BSEC). An IPO is a lottery process where you simply apply for an IPO through Midway Securities Ltd. If you are lucky in the lottery you will receive an IPO shares.
