Syndicate Bid(redirected from Syndicate Bids)
An order by a managing underwriter to buy or sell a security immediately before a secondary offering of the same security. The managing underwriter makes a syndicate bid in order to stabilize the price of the security, which will make the secondary offering easier to place with investors. This is only permissible under certain defined circumstances set forth in SEC Rule 10b-7.
