The role of any investment banker(s) is mostlytwofold. First, it is to distribute the company’s prospectus to prospective buyers of the stock. The second function of an investment banker or underwriter is to buy the company’s shares andresell them to the public. After SEC approval and usually a day or so before the actual public offering, the company andthe investment banker agree on a share price and the number of shares to be sold. The offering iscomplete when the company receives the money and delivers the shares to the underwriter.
Underwriters do extensive research before committing to buy a company’s securities. They takeon a calculated risk, essentially betting that the price per share they pay out to a company will beless than what the market is willing to pay for it. Opportunities for huge profits -and losses- existin this environment. Bibliography 1. Working report on IPO consent and listing procedure in Bangladesh, seehttp://www.
