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.
