    3. wider sources of financing

    4.improve the gearing ratio

    5.if interest rate is high or good market semitment, better issue stock


    1.if GON expect profits grow, issue stock will share the profits to m ore


    2.loss of control

    3.high cost for IPO, eg accounting,legal fee

    4.cost of capital is higher since shareholders do not have pirpority to get back investment when GON liquidation

    b)probably is privately own since it is family own.
