What is the main difference between primary and secondary offerings

The main difference between a primary investment offering and a secondary investment offering is how the shares (stocks) are acquired. In a primary investment offering, investors are purchasing shares (stocks) directly from the issuer. However, in a secondary investment offering, investors are purchasing shares (stocks) from sources other than the issuer (employees, former employees, or investors).
