There has been a few IPOs already and the interest in them are also on the way up. Interest meant the oversubscription numbers. Now, we have another one on the way to list in the ACE Market of Bursa Malaysia.

Listings are also a sign for the market

When there are only a few companies going public, it also meant the companies may not be confident enough that their shares will be fully subscribed. Or that the valuation accorded to them will be good enough. When more companies see that the market is ready, more would want to go for listing. Usually, this helps the owners to also realise some profits by selling some of their shares too.

Else, if just rely on the salary alone, it is likely to be slow. I mean, if one has worked so hard to build up the company, why not share the future potential with the public while at the same time have some money to do what one pleases. For the public, if investing into a company also allows them to partake in future and perhaps a good dose of dividends, then that may also be a good choice too. Remember yeah, past performance is no guarantee for future performance. Due diligence is needed for all investments.
