Piggy Back Registration

The registration of a security in which an underwriter allows a new issue to be offered along with previously issued shares. A piggyback registration must occur with the permission of the relevant underwriter and be noted in the new issue's prospectus. Piggyback registration should not be confused with piggybacking, which is a different concept altogether.
