tender

  1. an invitation from a buyer who requires particular goods or services to prospective suppliers of those products to put in competing price bids. The buyer will usually detail the precise specifications of the product, and will make a final decision about which supplier's bid to accept on the basis of comparative price and how well bids match up to the stated requirements. See QUOTATION, definition 1.
  2. a means of making a SHARE ISSUE by offering shares to the general public, who are invited to make a bid for shares, subject to a minimum bid price. The issue price of the shares is determined by averaging out the bid prices offered by prospective purchasers. Anyone making a bid which is below the final issue price will not be offered any shares, whilst those making a bid at or above the price will be allotted shares in full at the final price.

tender

An offer to perform a contract,with the present ability to do so.The term is important when parties dispute the amount due on a debt. Usually, the debtor tenders payment in full, but the payment is refused by the creditor because of an assertion that more is due and the creditor will not accept a partial payment. Because there was a tender, if it is later determined the debtor's calculations were accurate, the debtor will owe no additional interest, costs, fees, or expenses.
