Si juntas SHELF + TAKEDOWN, creo que resulta GIRO PREACORDADO

Takedown: "Drawing of funds which are committed by a lender per a previous agreement" (
Shelf registration: "A procedure that allows firms to file one registration statement covering several issues of the same security. SEC Rule 415, adopted in the 1980s, allows a corporation to comply with registration requirements up to two years prior to a public offering of securities. With the registration "on the shelf," the corporation, by simply updating regularly filed annual, quarterly, and related reports to the SEC, can go to the market as conditions become favorable with a minimum of administrative preparation and expense.
(YAHOO Financial Glossary)

Y SHELF por sí sólo también designa a algo con existencia previa.

Market overhang: ¿Excedente de mercado?
ya que dollar overhang aparece como excendente de dólares en Eurodicautom.

Market overhang: "The theory that, in certain situations, institutions wish to sell their shares but postpone the sale because large orders under current market conditions would drive down the share price and that the consequent threat of securities sales will tend to retard the rate of share price appreciation. Support for this theory is largely anecdotal"
