A way of making a new issue of securities in which the issuer hires an underwriting firm or syndicate and negotiates all terms of the issue with them. In general, a negotiated offering involves the underwriters guaranteeing that the issue will be placed with investors at a certain price in exchange for a fee to the underwriters. It contrasts with multiple competitive bidding. Most offerings, however, are negotiated.
