Takeover bid

Offer to the shareholders of a corporation in order to acquire the shares in their possession at a certain price.

The price offered is usually above the current stock market price. A distinction is made between a friendly takeover bid, i.e. with the approval of the management of the respective acquisition target, and a hostile one without the support of the existing management.
