An issue of securities offered for sale to the public or private group. Securities offerings are generally of two types: primary (proceeds going to the company for some lawful purpose) and secondary (where the funds go to a person other than the company; i.e., selling stockholders).
@ primary offerings
Primary offerings are also termed "new issues" as they involve the issuance of securities not previously offered and sold.
