Going public, also known as conducting an initial public offering (IPO), refers to the process by which a privately held company offers its shares to the public for the first time. This allows the company to raise capital from public investors. The transition from private to public is a significant time for any company because it provides the company with access to the capital markets to raise money for expansion or other needs.
