self tender defense


A strategy against a hostile takeover where the target company makes a tender offer for its own shares. The tender offer increases the cost of acquisition, making the company less susceptible to takeovers. Also, the debt incurred to finance the tender offer reduces the firm's attractiveness to any hostile takeovers.
