What are the advantages of investing in companies that are listed on stock exchange in Reverse Merger way and why it is different from normal Ipo filing

Please cite with an example company that is listed on Indian stock exhcange

In a reverse merger a private limited company buys controlling stake in a public limited company. Hence by virtue of this takeover the private limited company becomes a public limited company, and therefore the stock get traded.

A reverse takeover is usually a cheaper alternative to an IPO.I don’t think there is any particular advantage of investing in a company just because it gets listed in a reverse merger way.

There are just handful of examples of such corporate transactions in India…if I remember right there was one instance where a Godrej Group company which was reverse merged.
