leveraged buy out
leveraged buy out
(LBO) A transaction where a purchaser uses the assets of the corporation to be acquired (target) as collateral for the loan to buy the stock of the target. LBOs stand a significant risk of bankruptcy because, after the transaction, they have little net worth to weather a business downturn. Unsecured creditors of a bankrupt LBO often argue that the lenders and former shareholders received a fraudulent transfer. (Bernstein's Dictionary of Bankruptcy Terminology)
