Hostile takeover - Takeover - Wikipedia



Broadcom Ltd. and Qualcomm Corp. appeared to be in a pretty standard hostile-takeover fight for months: Broadcom made offers, the Qualcomm board denied them, so Broadcom tried to convince Qualcomm shareholders to reshape Qualcomm’s board to be more friendly toward a merger.

That script was upended last week, with a surprising intervention by the U.S. government that ratcheted quickly and culminated with President Donald Trump saying he was blocking the record-breaking deal late Monday. Trump’s move came after an action-packed week that included Broadcom rushing plans to move to the U.S., Qualcomm’s executive chairman stepping down from being actively involved in the company and chip giant Intel Corp. possibly getting involved in the fray.

As it has gotten into serious legal battles over its licensing fees, its business model is under attack . Apple Inc. AAPL, -0.85% , a former customer now involved in a messy legal dispute , said Qualcomm was “acting like a common patent troll” in one of its legal filings late last year.

Turnaround specialist Melrose said it believed it could "deliver significantly greater benefits" to GKN's shareholders than GKN could on its own.

Under the terms of the offer, GKN shareholders would own 57% of the enlarged group and, according to Melrose, would become "major participants in the potential future value creation in both the GKN and Melrose businesses".

But in its statement on Wednesday, GKN's board said Melrose's proposal would "materially dilute the exposure of GKN shareholders to the meaningful upside opportunities that the board believes are present within the group".

In business, a takeover is the purchase of one company (the target ) by another (the acquirer , or bidder ). In the UK , the term refers to the acquisition of a public company whose shares are listed on a stock exchange , in contrast to the acquisition of a private company .

Management of the target company may or may not agree with a proposed takeover, and this has resulted in the following takeover classifications: friendly, hostile, reverse or back-flip. Financing a takeover often involves loans or bond issues which may include junk bonds as well as a simple cash offers. It can also include shares in the new company.

A friendly takeover is an acquisition which is approved by the management of the target company. Before a bidder makes an offer for another company, it usually first informs the company's board of directors . In an ideal world, if the board feels that accepting the offer serves the shareholders better than rejecting it, it recommends the offer be accepted by the shareholders.

Many successful corporations often become targets for larger companies. These larger entities may propose a merger with the smaller company, or seek to acquire it through purchasing its stock shares. When one company attempts to buy a controlling interest in another through stock purchases, the purchasing entity is engaging in a "takeover."

A "friendly takeover," also called an "acquisition," occurs when the acquiring company informs the target company's board of directors that it plans to purchase a controlling interest. The board of directors then votes on the proposed buyout. If the board believes the stock purchase would benefit the current stockholders, they vote in favor of the sale. The acquiring company then takes control of the target company's operations and may or may not choose to keep the target company's board of directors in place.

A "hostile takeover" happens when the target company's board of directors votes down the stock sale to the acquiring company. Agents of the acquiring company then attempt to purchase the target company's stock from other sources, gain a controlling interest and force out the board members who voted against the acquisition. When this happens, the acquiring company will aggressively go after shares of the target firm, while the target's board of directors prepares to fight for survival.
