Jointly and Severally

Relating to an agreement between the issuer of a new security and its underwriting syndicates mandating that the underwriters are responsible for any unsold portion of the issue in proportion to their participation in the issue, even if they sold their initially agreed upon participations. For instance, suppose an underwriting firm is responsible for placing 15% of an issue and does so. If the entire issue is not placed, the firm is still responsible for placing 15% of the unsold portion of the issue. This process continues until the entire issues is sold or the remainder cancelled.
