Sure, the most exciting part when a company goes public is the opportunity to finally buy shares in it. Easily, on the stock exchange, without running through hoops in the grey market for private shares. 

But there’s another exciting part too. When a company files its going-public documents (whether for an IPO or a SPAC), there’s a bunch of stuff it reveals about the company itself, but also about the larger industry that it operates in.
