Initial Public Offering (IPO)
Explanation:
The most commonly used term, at least in the US, is IPO (Initial Public Offering).
I interpreted at a conference last year during which the company's Börsengang was being discussed. The German speaker (the company's CFO) used both the term Börsengang and the term IPO in her (German) presentation.
