Acquisition of stock

Acquisition of Stock

An acquisition by one company of another in which the acquiring company buys the target company's stock. That is, rather than paying with debt or some other means, an acquisition of stock occurs when the acquiring company buys a majority of the target company's shares outstanding. This may be associated with a hostile takeover, where the acquiring company buys shares directly from stockholders, but this is not always the case. See also: Leveraged buyout.
