Seasoned equity offering

A Seasoned equity offering ("SEO") or Capital increase is a new equity issue by a company after its IPO. It differs from a "secondary" equity offering, in which owners (not the company) sell their shares. In the latter case, the company gets no money and no ownership dilution happens, for the company does not issue new shares. In reality, secondary offerings may be a combination of the two.
