stabilization period

Stabilization Period

The period between the offering of a new issue and the time at which it is fully distributed. During the stabilization period, underwriters serve as counterparties on the secondary market to help keep the price of the new issue at or above the offering price on the primary market. If the market price falls below the offering price, the underwriters will be unable to place the issue with investors because interested parties will buy at the lower price available on the secondary market. After the issue is fully distributed, there are no more shares or bonds to sell on the primary market and the stabilization period ends. See also: Price stabilization.
