Take-out

A cash surplus generated by the sale of one block of securities and the purchase of another, e.g., selling a block of bonds at 99 and buying another block at 95. Also, a bid made to a seller of a security that is designed (and generally agreed) to take the seller out of the market.

Takeout

2. Extra cash that an investor derives when he/she sells a position and then buys a similar position for a lower price.

3. To make a bid for the entirety of a security that a seller owns.
