10 FIN437 Vicentiu Covrig 10 Advantages and Disadvantages of Going Public IPO (Initial Public Offering): the process of selling stock to the public for the first time Advantages: - Greater liquidity  Private equity investors get the ability to diversify. - Better access to capital  Public companies typically have access to much larger amounts of capital through the public markets. Disadvantages: - The equity holders become more widely dispersed.  This makes it difficult to monitor management. - The firm must satisfy all of the requirements of public companies.  SEC filings, Sarbanes-Oxley, etc.

11 FIN437 Vicentiu Covrig 11 Types of Offerings Primary and Secondary Offerings - Primary Offering  New shares available in a public offering that raise new capital - Secondary Offering  Shares sold by existing shareholders in an equity offering

12 FIN437 Vicentiu Covrig 12 Best-Efforts basis  For smaller IPOs, a situation in which the underwriter does not guarantee that the stock will be sold, but instead tries to sell the sock for the best possible price  Often such deals have an all-or-none clause: either all of the shares are sold on the IPO or the deal is called off Firm Commitment  An agreement between an underwriter and an issuing firm in which the underwriter guarantees that it will sell all of the stock at the offer price Auction IPOs  Rather than setting a price itself and then allocating shares to buyers, the underwriter in an auction IPO takes bids from investors and then sets the price that clears the market.

13 FIN437 Vicentiu Covrig 13 Underwriters and the Syndicate - Lead Underwriter: The primary investment banking firm responsible for managing a security issuance - Syndicate: A group of underwriters who jointly underwrite and distribute a security issuance SEC Filings - Registration Statement: A legal document that provides financial and other information about a company to investors prior to a security issuance - Preliminary Prospectus (Red Herring):Part of the registration statement prepared by a company prior to an IPO that is circulated to investors before the stock is offered

16 FIN437 Vicentiu Covrig 16 Example 23.3

17 FIN437 Vicentiu Covrig 17 Example 23.3 (cont'd)

18 FIN437 Vicentiu Covrig 18 Pricing the Deal and Managing Risk - Spread  The fee a company pays to its underwriters that is a percentage of the issue price of a share of stock  For RealNetworks, the final offer price was $12.50 per share and the company paid the underwriters a spread of $0.875 per share, exactly 7% of the issue price.  Since this was a firm commitment deal, the underwriters bought the stock from RealNetworks for $11.625 per share and then resold it to their customers for $12.50 per share. » $12.50 – $0.875 = $11.625

19 FIN437 Vicentiu Covrig 19 IPO Puzzle Underpricing - Generally, underwriters set the issue price so that the average first-day return is positive.  As mentioned previously, research has found that 75% of first-day returns are positive.  The average first day return in the United States is 18.3%  The underwriters benefit from the underpricing as it allows them to manage their risk.  The pre-IPO shareholders bear the cost of underpricing. In effect, these owners are selling stock in their firm for less than they could get in the aftermarket.
