Introduction

Even after listing, listed companies may access public capital markets or a section of such market, to meet their capital requirements. A listed company may offer its securities to its existing equity shareholders only, through a rights issue; to identified institutional investors, through a qualified institutions placement; or to public investors at large through a follow on public offer. These modes of raising capital are discussed below. Additionally, listed companies may also offer securities to select persons through a preferential issue. Such private placements are outside the scope of this article.
