Killer bees

Those who aid a company in fending off a takeover bid, usually investment bankers who devise strategies to make the target less attractive or more difficult to acquire.

Killer Bee

An investment banker who helps publicly-traded companies take periodic or continual measures to discourage unwanted or hostile takeovers. One example of an antitakeover measure in which a killer bee might assist is the macaroni defense, in which the company issues a large number of bonds with the proviso that they must be redeemed at a high price if the company is taken over.
