Quiet Period
Full Definition

After the IPO is priced, the underwriters face further restrictions on issuing research. This is called the quiet period. It lasts up to 25 days. However, under some circumstances the underwriters can issue a research recommendation more quickly. If the distribution is complete, meaning they have disbanded the syndicate and are not exercising the overallotment, the SEC allows a safe harbor for research.
