Takeover Attempt

An effort by a corporation or, less commonly, an individual, to purchase a majority of the stock in a publicly-traded company. A takeover attempt may be friendly or hostile but, in order to be successful, must be approved by a majority of shareholders (or, more specifically, the holders of a majority of shares).
