I've only heard of this in Spain Oferta Pública de Adquisición OPA. It's the functional equivalent of IPO.

La Bolsa de Estocolmo reconoció hoy el fracaso de su Oferta Pública de Adquisición (OPA) hostil sobre la Bolsa de Londres, tras haber logrado una aceptación del 6,7 por ciento, lo que supone sólo 1.979.749 acciones.

4000 hits

EXTRACT
Los valores objeto de una OPA u OPI, no podrán ser materia de operaciones de reporte ni entregarse como margen de garantía, desde que se hubiera anunciado dicha oferta hasta que sean considerados como susceptibles de dichas operaciones de acuerdo a la metodología de la TVR. Igualmente, lo dispuesto precedentemente será de aplicación desde que se hubiera anunciado la convocatoria a junta general de accionistas para tratar la exclusión del valor, la disolución con liquidación, fusión o escisión de la emisora de valores objeto del reporte
