From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

A Seasoned equity offering or secondary equity offering (SEO) is a new equity issue by an already publicly-traded company. Secondary offerings may involve shares sold by existing shareholders (non-dilutive), new shares (dilutive) or both.

The expression 'capital increase' is in widespread use in English-language material published by German corporations. It is a literal translation of the German "Kapitalerhöhung". The expression has extremely little actual currency in either US or UK financial media, in contrast to 'share/stock sale', 'share/stock offering' or 'floatation', which are idiomatic, as well as 'raise/inject capital' or 'equity financing' for example in other contexts.

Because it is essentially not used as such in English, 'capital increase' is generally a flag of unrefined translation despite its widespread use.
