Description

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. A corporate raid is an American English business term for buying a large interest in a corporation and then using voting rights to enact measures directed at increasing the share value. The measures might include replacing top executives, downsizing operations, or liquidating the company. By the end of the 1980s, management of many large publicly traded corporations reacted negatively to the threat of potential hostile takeover or corporate raid and pursued drastic defensive measures including poison pills, golden parachutes and increasing debt levels on the company's balance sheet. In later years, many of the corporate raiders would be re-characterized as "activist shareholders."show more
