Most IPO’S these days do nothave a fixed offer price. Instead they follow a method called BOOK BUILDIN PROCESS, where the offer price is placed in a band or a rangewith the highest and the lowest value (refer to the newspaper clipping onthe page). The public can bid for the shares at any price in the bandspecified. Once the bids come in, the company evaluates all the bids anddecides on an offer price in that range. After the offer price is fixed, thecompany allots its shares to the people who had applied for its shares orreturns them their money in case of non allotment of shares.
