Malaysia financial markets

A public offering is the nonexclusive sale of securities to the general public. Public offerings are normally executed with the help of a securities firm that provides investment banking services. The securities firm may underwrite the offering, which means that it guarantees the amount to be received by the issuing firm.

Public offering VS Private placement

A private placement is the sale of new securities directly to an investor or a group of investors. Only institutional investors such as pension funds or insurance companies can afford to invest in private placements.
