Bus/Financial - Finance (general) / public offer
French term or phrase: oraux
From a report about a company buyout:

La volonté de XXXX était de choisir son repreneur et de faire bénéficier de ces 2 milliards un repreneur choisi par elle. Est-ce choquant ? Pas du tout. (...) Donc, XXXX a organisé elle aussi des grands oraux avec ou sans les administrateurs, où chaque repreneur devait exposer ce qu'il comptait faire avec 1 milliard, 2 milliards, etc ; afin que XXXX émette un avis.

My understanding is that this is some sort of open meeting/conference/hearing...but I am not sure if there is a specific English term for this? Thank you in advance!
