LBO

Leveraged Buyout

The acquisition of a publicly-traded company, often by a group of private investors, that is financed with debt. Often, the acquirer in a LBO issues junk bonds in order to raise the capital necessary for the acquisition. A leveraged buyout allows a company to be taken over with little capital, but it can be a high risk endeavor.
