Full Definition

Most initial public offerings and secondary offerings have more than one underwriter. The manager controlling the offering is called the lead manager. Other underwriters are co-managers. The names of these underwriters appear on the bottom of the front page of the prospectus, with the most important manager appearing on the top left, and the co-managers arrayed from left to right in order of importance.
