Purchased deals are common to see the news. For example, below is an excerpt from a press release with The Flowr Corporation (TSX). V: FLWR). From the discussion above, readers should be able to interpret that insurers are purchasing 10,610,000 units of Flowr Corporation at a price of $4.10 per unit (worth $43,501,000). There are several types of IPOs, two of which are similar to purchased transactions, as they can lead to a fully subscribed IPO. In addition, a purchased transaction can also use it as a method of reselling securities. Fixed-price and book-building ipos are included in the two main categories. A company can use these types separately or in combination. To compensate for this risk, the investment bank often negotiates a significant discount when purchasing the offer from the issuing customer. If the agreement is important, an investment bank can merge with other banks and form a union, so that each company bears only part of the risk.
There are three types of transactions that a trader can offer an issuer during the issuing process: the agency, signed or purchased A transaction purchased is relatively risky for the investment bank. Indeed, the investment bank must turn around and try to sell the block of acquired securities profitably to other investors. In this scenario, the investment bank runs the risk of a possible net loss, either that the securities sell at a lower price after a loss of value or do not sell it at all. In such a scenario, the insurer risks losing money by not being able to resell the securities at a higher price. In a purchased deal, the underwriter acts as a sponsor and not as an agent. You will find an illustration of a deal purchased below: A purchased transaction offers several benefits to the insurer and the issuing company. The advantages of the agreement purchased from the insurer`s point of view are that the disadvantage of the purchased agreement, from the insurer`s point of view, is that if it cannot sell the securities, it must hold them. This is usually the result of the market price, which falls below the issue price, which means that the underwriter loses money. The insurer also consumes its capital, which would probably be better used otherwise (investment banks are generally unable to buy new securities issues on the sales side).
 In a signed agreement, one or more traders agree to purchase the new issue as a client and resell the new issue to the public.
