takeover bid


Explanation:
Public offer of acquisition of company shares designed to gain a controlling interest.

Acronimo di offerta pubblica d´acquisto. Offerta d´acquisto di azioni, pubblica ed indiscriminata, con lo scopo di acquistare una partecipazione maggioritaria di una società. Il prezzo é superiore a quello di mercato, per favorire l´accettazione dell´offerta, che deve essere realizzata in un termine fissato. É normale che esista una quantità massima di azioni da comprare e la OPA può essere condizionata temporalmente all´acquisto di un certo numero di azioni.
