Indication of Interest

1. A situation in which a potential buyer tells an underwriter that he/she might wish to buy a portion of a new issue. Before a new issue, underwriters canvass potential investors, who may or may not book an order to buy a portion. Investors are required to be provided with a preliminary prospectus if he/she indicates interest. It is important to note that indications of interest are non-binding because it is illegal to sell a security that has not been issued. See also: Overbooked, Underbooked, Fully Subscribed.

2. More broadly, any situation in which a potential buyer makes an inquiry of a seller about a security. This shows that the buyer may wish to buy the security.
