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.

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.
