What Is An Agreement Among Underwriters

The subscription contract can be considered as a contract between a company issuing a new issue of securities and the subscription group that agrees to buy and resell the issue at a profit. A reserve subscription contract is used in conjunction with an offer of rights. Any subscription of reserve is made on a fixed commitment basis. The reserve underwriter agrees to purchase all shares that the current shareholders do not purchase. The reserve subscriber will then resell the securities to the public. The Deposit Shares will be issued pursuant to a deposit agreement (the Deposit Agreement) on the day of , 20, between the Company and , as a custodian bank. A subscription contract of all efforts is mainly used when selling high-risk securities. Under a subscription agreement of all efforts, the underwriters do their best to sell all the securities offered by the issuer, but the underwriter is not required to buy the securities on its own account. The lower the demand for a problem, the more likely it is to occur to the best of its ability. Shares or bonds that have not been sold will be returned to the issuer. The subscription agreement contains the details of the transaction, including the obligation of the underwriting group to purchase the new issue of securities, the agreed price, the initial resale price and the settlement date.

As part of a firm commitment subscription, the underwriter guarantees the acquisition of all securities offered for sale by the issuer, whether or not it can sell them to investors. This is the most desirable agreement because it immediately guarantees all the money of the issuer.
