An Initial Public Offering (IPO) is the process by which companies go public by selling their shares to investors over a stock exchange.

At the end of the allotment period, the company then offers the remaining unsold shares for sale to other investors. The unsold shares fall into the "restricted" share category. Trading these restricted shares is not permitted after the allotment period has passed and the company has listed them for sale.
