  16. 16. The objectives of the Underwriting are presented below:  It guarantees the sale of securities at a given price.  It facilitates the provision of money during the financial crisis of the company.  The Underwriter helps the new company in its reorganization. 
  17. 17.  The following are the salient features of an underwriting agreement:  The Underwriter may not be able to sell the issues in some situations. The unsold securities are distributed among the underwriters in the agreed proportion.  The offering price must be maintained for the successful distribution of the securities. The company makes a delivery of the securities to the manager and receives the payment on the closing date
  18. 18.  At the termination of the underwriting, the manager must make the final accounting for each underwriter. He should also remit the commissions and accounts for the expenditure incurred.  Underwriting is insurance for the new securities of the public. It is one of the methods of marketing securities. The other methods are:  Prospectus method, where the capital is raised by this method is very prevalent in India. The distribution expenses may be substantially saved.
  19. 19.  Offer for sale, where the sales are sold largely to the brokers/issue houses. The issue house/brokers again sell the shares to the public at a fixed price. This method saves the company the cost and the trouble of selling the shares to the public. Here a Third party takes over the responsibility.  Private placement, where the funds are raised in the primary market by selling the security issue to one investor or a small group of investors without resorting to underwriting. The cost of the issue is minimal. It is the most effective way of procuring the long term funds. There is no need to follow the statutory formalities. The offer is made to select a group of known persons.

Any losses that occur due to unsold shares are prorated amongst the participating underwriting firms according to their proportional participation.
  26. 26.  Best Efforts: Best efforts underwriting allows the firm (or underwriting syndicate) to act as agent for the issuing corporation and limits the responsibility of that firm to the shares it is able to sell. All unsold shares are absorbed by the issuer.
  27. 27.  All or None: All or none underwriting allows the issuing corporation to contract for the sale of all shares. If any shares remain at the end of the underwriting process, the underwriting is cancelled. Underwriters cannot deceive investors by stating that all of the securities in the underwriting have been sold if it is not true.  Standby: Stand by underwriting allows an underwriting firm (or syndicate) to wait in the wings in an additional offering for any unused pre-emptive rights that are not executed by the company’s current shareholders. The underwriter will purchase the unused rights, exercise them and sell the shares.
  28. 28.  According to the SEBI guidelines the following factors are to be fulfilled:  The minimum requirement of 90% subscription is mandatory for each issue of capital to the public. This clause is applicable for both public and rights issue.  If the company is not able to receive the issued amount from the public subscription and accepted development from the underwriters, then the company refunds the amount.  The underwriting agreement should be filed with the stock exchanges.
  29. 29.  The registration number of the underwriter is to be quoted in all correspondence with the SEBI, government authorities and clients.  The SEBI may issue warning letters or penalty advances by which the underwriters would be forewarned in respect of their omissions  In order to standardize the legal relationship between the issuing company and the underwriters, the SEBI has formulated the model underwriting agreement.  The total underwriting obligations under all the agreements should not exceed twenty times the network of the underwriter
