Tuck-In Acquisition

Tuck-In Acquisition

The acquisition of a company where the acquiring company intends to merge the target company into one of its departments. For example, a broad-based financial services company may conduct a tuck-in acquisition where it buys a research company and then transfers all of its resources into its own research department. A tuck-in acquisition is also called a bolt-on acquisition.
