price swap derivative


Securing one company's assets by a pledge of another company's shares. This tactic, made famous by Enron, enables a troubled company to use another company's shares to conceal its financial weakness. A price swap derivative dilutes the value of the securing company's stock and exposes both companies to the danger of financial collapse.
