To go public is nothing less than a milestone for companies and a multiplier for the founder’s wealth. This is one reason to explain the exponential boom of IPOs or Initial Public Offerings in the U.S. market alone. Between 2000 and 2021, as many as 5,192 companies went public on Wall Street. The largest number was recorded last year in 2020, whereas many as 480 IPOs were recorded.
Some of these IPOs were tantamount to the biggest success stories ever. For example, Alibaba Group Limited was listed in 2014 and collected a whopping $21.8 billion in its IPO, eventually taking the figure to $25 billion after underwriters sold more shares.
General Motors Company is another success story that made its debut at the end of 2010, collecting $20.1 billion.
While this tells a story about why companies want to go public- raising capital to meet diversified business needs- there are enough reasons for investors to put their money in Initial Public Offerings.
For investors, IPO is the best bet to invest in equity at the most competitive prices. Shareholders can make valuable returns, much more than the later stage investors if the company becomes a multibagger in the future. Prices of the IPOs are also much more reasonable, giving a chance to invest early in stocks that one might not afford later.
Having said that, here are the five hottest upcoming IPOs launching in June 2021
