High-Yield Financing

The act of financing an activity or broader operation through the issue of junk bonds. These bonds have low credit ratings and have comparatively high risk. As a result, the issuer must pay higher interest rates. High-yield financing is used in some takeover situations where the acquiring company is cash poor.
