To have a brand involved in a lot of things takes a ton of effort. Every company, big or small, expects their company to attract the right kind of investors, effective marketing heads, and suitable employees with the required skill sets they want. After all, running a company is a whole different and more demanding task than owning a company. And having the trustable pillars from investors to employees allows a company to venture into the ultimate thing, i.e., IPO (Initial Public Offering).
IPO refers to the process where an existing or a new company without any shares listed on the stock exchange decides to allow the public to buy its shares. With the sale of the claims, the company collects a capital gain that it usually uses to set up its infrastructures and pay its debts or loan. 2021 has seen several IPOs listing gains that augur well for the future of the stock market. However, there were five who completely dominated the listing gains in this year.
