Secondary Public Offering

Secondary Public Offering

Any issue of stock after the initial public offering. That is, in a secondary public offering, a company sells shares that it has not previously issued. This increases the number of shares outstanding, which can (though does not always) lead to dilution of share value. A secondary public offering occurs on the primary market and therefore should not be confused with secondary market transactions.
