Typical newbie question lol.
One of the stocks that I hold regularly announces that it has released shares from escrow. That's a strange term for me, so a little digging revealed that it is all about a third party holding the shares until the money is paid. But I can't relate that to a real life situation. The company is small and still in a start-up phase (RFX) and it seems that some of the shares in the company are held for a certain period in escrow - but why?
