Primary Market
June 07 , 2012

The market where a company raises funds from investors is called the Primary Market. There are three main types of offerings in the Primary Market - Initial Public Offer (IPO), Rights Offer and the Follow-on Public Offer (FPO). In each of these, new shares are issued by the company in return for cash.

The Primary Market is distinct from the Secondary Market, wherein one investor buys shares from another – without the company participating in it. The Secondary Market therefore does not affect the companys balance sheet like the Primary Market does. However, from an investor point of view, one market is not safer or better than the other.
