Northam Resources targeted a raise of $6,000,000 – $9,000,000 at $0.25 a share in its initial public offering (IPO). While the dates and prices may change, the company is pegged to begin trading publicly on the ASX on Withdrawn.

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.

Where to invest in the Northam Resources IPO

You can invest in pre-IPO stock through a participating broker or lead manager before the offer closes on 25 November 2022. In this case, the Northam Resources IPO is being lead managed by Blue Ocean Equities Pty Limited.

If you're already registered with a broker, check if they're offering pre-listed stock or think about signing up to a participating broker.

However, it can be tricky for regular investors to participate in IPOs because only a few firms are usually allocated pre-IPO stock. In most cases, these are full-service brokers that require a large initial deposit.

Your other easier option is to buy shares in Northam Resources once it goes public. You can do that through a share trading platform:
