Special purpose acquisition companies (SPACs), also known as “blank check companies”, are specially created to raise capital through an OPV with the aim of merging or purchasing another existing company.
Public offerings are operations in which a company puts a portion of its shares up for sale. In general, they can be of two types:
Offerings of already existing shares belonging to one or several shareholders or Offerings of newly issued shares
The primary market is the market in which newly created securities are sold and therefore they are offered to investors for the first time. When a company has financing needs, it can raise funds by issuing new shares and selling them.
When a company decides to go public, its shares are not directly listed on the stock exchange. First, the company must sell those shares to investors. This previous step is called Initial Public Offering (IPO).
Going public usually represents a turning point in the history of a company, as it brings deep changes in its economic and organizational structure. From the moment a company is listed on a stock exchange, any investor can buy and sell its shares.
