Exploration company 8 Au is set to list soon on the Australian Securities Exchange (ASX), which means that you'll be able to buy company shares.
8 Au had looked to raise $8 million - $12 million at $0.20 a share in its initial public offering (IPO). Although the dates and prices may change, the company is pegged to begin trading publicly on the ASX on 6 December 2021.
Here's what we know about the initial public offering (IPO), including how to invest before it lists and how to buy in when it lists.
To invest in an IPO, you'll typically need to be registered with a participating broker or lead manager. This can be tricky for regular investors because only a few firms are allocated IPO stock and they're most often full-service brokers. In this case, the IPO is being lead managed by Bell Potter Securities Limited.
If you're already registered with a broker, it always pays to check if they're offering pre-listed IPO stock, as lead managers sometimes allocate a portion of shares on to other firms. Your other option is to buy shares in 8 Au once it goes public. To do that, you'll need to be signed up to a share trading platform:
8 Au lodged its prospectus with the Australian Securities and Investments Commission (ASIC) to list on the ASX under the ticker symbol 8AU.
Bell Potter Securities Limited were appointed as lead managers with an expected raise of $8 million - $12 million at $0.20 per share. You can check out some of the key dates and figures in the table below:

According to latest information available, retail investors (regular investors) have between 25 October 2021 and 30 November 2021 to participate in the 8 Au IPO. After the retail offer close date, you'll need to wait until the stock is publicly available on the ASX to buy shares.
