Rumoured Gousto IPO: how to 'buy' Gousto shares

Pre-listing

Grey market

Our grey market prices are based on an estimation of a company’s market cap at the end of its first trading day. Our exclusive grey markets let you take a position on this estimation.

If a grey market is offered for Gousto (if the company decides to list in the future), you can:

  • Buy’ (go long) if you predict that the market cap will exceed the price we quote
  • ‘Sell’ (go short) if you predict that the market cap will be less than the price we quote

IPO subscriptions

If offered for Gousto, you have access to subscribe ahead of the listing – this is powered by our partnership with PrimaryBid.3 If you choose us and PrimaryBid to register your interest in Gousto’s IPO, and the company grants retail investors access to its shares, your stock will be allocated at the same time and price as institutional investors.

What are IPO subscriptions and how do they work?

Post-listing

If and when the listing takes place, we’ll offer Gousto shares on the day of their IPO. Once the market has opened, the shares will be available for you to buy.

  • Use CFDs to speculate on share price movement

The difference between trading and investing in Gousto shares

If the speculated Gousto IPO goes ahead, trading its stock with us will mean that you’ll be speculating on the price movements of the company’s shares with CFDs. Since you won’t own the underlying assets, you can speculate on both rising and falling share prices.

CFDs are leveraged products, which means that you can open a position with a deposit – known as margin. Trading with leverage can increase both your profits and your losses, because they’re calculated using a position’s full market exposure, not just the margin requirement to open it.

How do IPOs work?

IPOs work by having a company put its shares up for sale to the public. Some common reasons for this include seeking to raise capital for business growth, decreasing or settling debts, positioning itself to better attract and retain talent, or increasing liquidity.

The IPO process starts off with a detailed audit of the company by an external resource – it must be conducted taking all the company’s financials into consideration. Next, a registration statement needs to be prepared by the business and filed with the appropriate exchange commission. If the commission grants approval, the company can then list a set number of shares at a price determined by an investment bank.

FAQs

What are the risks of trading an IPO?

All trading activity is risky – IPOs come with additional risks, including:

  • Missing important company information that might impact share prices, eg pending legal cases and intellectual property that is not patented
  • Little to no trading track record to base decisions on
  • Elevated market expectations that do not materialise
  • Companies not meeting their target market cap

Before committing to any trade, it is important that you have all the facts that you need. In the case of trading IPOs, you can use company prospectuses, admission documents and other information to stay up-to-date. By staying informed, you can avoid risks that could affect your position in a trade.
