Godfather Offer

Definition

A takeover technique where the acquiring company offers the target company an amount of money so large that management of the target company cannot refuse the proposal for fear of shareholder retaliation. If the target company was to refuse, the shareholders might file lawsuits or even revolt saying that management did not do what was best for the investors. The term is derived from the Godfather trilogy of movies, specifically the famous line "I'll make him an offer he can't refuse."
