lock-up period / lock-up


Explanation:
I agree with Ralf that more context is needed. My two cents if the context fits:

Lock-Up-Periode = Sperrfrist

Altaktionäre sind am Neuen Markt gezwungen, ihre Aktien 6 Monate lang zu halten. Ist diese Frist abgelaufen, wachen die Kleinaktionäre mit Argusaugen darüber, ob die Geldgeber oder die Firmengründer ihre Anteile abstossen. Wer Aktien seiner eigenen Firma verkauft, dem unterstellt man, dass er selbst nicht viel von ihr hält.

(also called Lock-up-Periode in German)

lockup period
An interval during which an investment may not be sold. In the case of an IPO, employees may not sell their shares for a period time determined by the underwriter and usually lasting 180 days.
