Recall that Carson Company has periodically borrowed funds but contemplates a stock or bond offering so that it can expand by acquiring some other businesses. It has contacted Kelly Investment Company, a securities firm.c)The issuing firm in an IPO hopes that there will be strong demand for its shares at the offer price, which will ensure that it receives a reasonable amount of proceeds from its offerings. In some previous IPOs, the share price by the end of the first day was more than 80% above the offer price at the beginning of the day. This reflects a very strong demand relative to the price at the end of the day. In fact, It probably suggests that the IPO was fully subscribed at the offer price and that some institutional investors who purchased the stock at the offer price flipped their shares neat the end of the first day to individual investors who were willing to pay the market price. Do you think that the issuing firm would be pleased that its stock price increased by more than 80% on the first day? Explain. Who really benefits from the increase in price on the first day?
