When a listed company wishes to raise a large amount of capital from the public by selling shares or bonds, they normally do so through a book build. The CEO of the company and some of his directors will conduct what is known as a road show where they visit institutional fund managers individually or hold a meeting of fund managers to sell the viability of their proposal and its return. In this way they can raise a substantial amount relatively quickly.
