IPO Lockup Dates

A legally binding contract between the underwriters and insiders of the company undergoing an initial public offering (IPO). The contract prevents them from selling any shares of stock for a specified period of time. When lock-ups expire, restricted people are permitted to sell their stock. This sometimes results in a drastic drop in share price.
