Meaning: -

A public company can raise share capital either by making an offer to the public or by placing the shares privately i.e. without inviting the public for the subscription of its shares or debentures.

Sometimes a public company wants to raise capital privately. In this case, it will not offer the shares to the general public, but distribute the shares amongst a selected group of persons. For doing this, it may take the help of an underwriter, who finds the buyers for such a company. This is usually done by new companies or small scale public companies. When a public company makes private placement, it prepares a statement in lieu of prospectus and not-prospectus. 

Steps involved in Private placements: -

  1. Terms and conditions: -The terms and conditions regarding the value of the instrument, the maturity period, the rate of interest, should be clearly laid down. The terms and conditions must be finalized at the board meeting.
