Bought deal

Security issue in which one or two underwriters buy the entire issue. Also known as a guaranteed or fixed-price sale; opposite of a best-efforts sale.

Bought Deal

A new issue that a single underwriter purchases in order to place with investors. Most of the time, new issues are made through a syndicate of several underwriters. Likewise, most underwriters are reluctant to buy part of a new issue if they are unsure of how much demand there will be. Thus, an underwriter only agrees to a bought deal if it believes there will be a good deal of demand so that it can quickly re-sell the entire issue.
