Definition of 'General Public Distribution'

A general public distribution (GPD) is a type of distribution that is made to the general public. This type of distribution is typically made by a company that is going public or that is making a secondary offering. The GPD is made to the general public in order to raise capital.

The GPD is typically made through a public offering. A public offering is when a company sells its shares to the general public through an investment bank. The investment bank will help the company to set the price of the shares and to market the offering to potential investors.

The GPD is typically made at a discount to the market price of the shares. This is because the company is trying to encourage investors to buy the shares. The discount is typically based on the company's financial performance and its prospects for future growth.

The GPD is a way for a company to raise capital. It is also a way for the company to make its shares more liquid. This is because the shares will be traded on a public exchange, which makes them more accessible to investors.

The GPD is a complex process. It is important to have an experienced investment advisor to help you through the process.
