hostile tender offer

Hostile Tender Offer

In a hostile takeover, an offer to buy the target company's stock from shareholders. A hostile tender offer occurs when the target company's board of directors has recommended that shareholders not sell, and it will usually try to make a better offer than the hostile tender offer to buy out shareholders and avoid being taken over. The success of a hostile tender offer depends on how high it is compared to what the board of directors is willing to offer. See also: Antitakeover measure.
