The term IPO stands for initial public offering, explains the Houston Chronicle. This event signifies the first time that a company offers shares for sale to the general public as a method of raising capital. In return, the investors receive shares in ownership of the company. Investment bankers play a role in determining the value of shares during the initial public offering.
