(redirected from Partial Tender Offers)

Partial Tender Offer

An offer to buy some of the stock in a publicly-traded company for a price well above fair market value. The company making the tender offer specifies the maximum number of shares it will buy. As with other tender offers, it is not intended to stop trade on its stock. It may be part of a hostile takeover or, if a company is buying back its own stock, an attempt to keep a hostile takeover from happening. See also: Self-Tender Offer.
