III. Takeover – when one company (the acquirer) purchasing another (the target). Such events resemble mergers but without the formation of a new company. Kinds of takeovers: PROXY FIGHT - the acquirer tries to persuade the shareholders of the TARGET COMPANY that the present management of the firm should be ousted in favour of a slate of directors favorable to the acquirer. A friendly takeover consists of a straight buyout of a company, and happens frequently. The shareholders receive cash or (more commonly) an agreed-upon number of shares of the acquiring company's stock. A hostile takeover occurs when a company attempts to buy out another whether the management of the target company likes it or not. A reverse takeover can occur in different forms: a smaller corporate entity takes over a larger one; a private company purchases a public one;

Defenses against a hostile takeover include: the poison pill – a defensive action when company: changing the share voting structure or the board of directors, or spending all the company’s cash reserves.; a white knight - another buyer whom they prefer; green mail when bidders may agree to withdraw their bid if paid enough money for the shares they hold in the target company.

A company that wants to row or diversify can launch a raid – in other words, simply buy a large quantity of another company’s shares on the stock exchange. A “dawn raid” (нападение на рассвете) consists of buying shares through several brokers early in the morning, before the market has time to notice the rising price, and before speculators join in.
