Question

Normally, the price of shares in an IPO is set by an investment bank after conducting several valuation calculations and talking to potential investors.   But an AD is theoretically more efficient at finding the “right” price that equates supply and demand. 

Supporters of this method say that small investors get more access to IPOs because the traditional offering process involves investment banks funneling IPO shares to their best clients, who reap quick profits (assuming the stock price rises). But some analysts theorize that buyers pay more for stock sold in an AD because under the traditional method investment banks typically underprice offerings to make sure all the shares sell. Also, they say shareholders benefit when shares are sold using traditional methods because the initial spike often associated with traditional IPOs creates an image of success that drives the stock even higher. This is one reason shares sold in an AD don’t usually have the same run-up in price immediately after they begin trading.

The U.S. Treasury uses this method to sell Treasury securities, and many U.S. companies use the method for share buybacks

ID AD

Answer- AD – Dutch Auction

Question
