Overview: Listing a Company in Stock Market
The procedure through which an unlisted firm, a start-up, or an early-stage corporation can be listed on the NSE for trade/sale of its securities to the general public in the primary market is known as an initial public offering (IPO). IPOs were typically used to expand a company's main business activities or to launch new business activities or projects, with the result being a dilution of promoter shares.
In finance, stock (sometimes known as capital stock) refers to all of the shares that make up a corporation's or company's ownership. (The term "stocks" is sometimes used to refer to shares, especially in American English.) A single share of stock represents fractional ownership of the company in relation to its total number of shares. This usually entitles the shareholder (stockholder) to a certain percentage of the company's earnings, proceeds from asset liquidation (after discharge of all senior claims such as secured and unsecured debt), or voting power, which is usually divided proportionally to the amount of money each stockholder has invested. Specified classes of stock, for example, may be issued without voting rights, with improved voting rights, or with a certain priority to earn profits or liquidation proceeds before or after other classes of shareholders.
NSE (National Stock Exchange)
The National Stock Exchange of India Limited (NSE), headquartered in Mumbai, Maharashtra, is India's largest stock exchange. It is owned by a number of major financial institutions, banks, and insurance firms. The National Stock Market (NSE) was founded in 1992 as the country's first dematerialized electronic exchange. The NSE was the first exchange in the country to offer a contemporary, fully automated screen-based electronic trading system that allowed investors from all over the country to trade with ease. NSE's Managing Director and Chief Executive Officer is Vikram Limaye.
As of August 2021, the National Stock Exchange had a total market capitalization of around US$3.4 trillion, making it the world's tenth-largest stock exchange. The NSE's flagship index, the NIFTY 50, is a 50-stock index that is widely recognized as a gauge of the Indian capital market by investors in India and around the world. NSE created the NIFTY 50 index in 1996. However, according to Vaidyanathan (2016), the stock exchanges in India account for only roughly 4% of the Indian economy Or GDP.
