Hey guys got a question,

From the research I've done, it's not very common to exercise your options, but rather to just sell them on, except for in a few situations.

Now the question, if I buy a call option, and choose not to exercise it, but sell it because it has gained value. If the person I sell it to then decides to exercise it, who will be selling them the shares? Would they be issued to the person by the initial writer of the option? Would their broker issue them? Would I have to issue the shares to them?
Just curious about it all.

Thanks guys
