Consent Solicitation

Consent Solicitation

An offer by the issuer of a security to change the terms of the security agreement. For example, a bond issuer may ask bondholders if the terms of the indenture may be changed. Consent solicitations are made because security agreements require mutual consent in order to be altered.
