staple financing

Definition

A financing package provided to potential buyers of a company by the investment bank advising the selling company. By providing information regarding the financing structure, including price and fees, investment banks increase the odds of a deal going through. It is referred to as "staple" financing because the options are said to be stapled to the back of the acquisition terms. Conflicts with staple financing can arise if the investment bank advising the seller also provides the financing for the buying firm.
