Acquisition of a company that doesn't want to be acquired by purchasing a controlling interest in the corporation (often through a leveraged buyout), booting out the board of directors, and installing your own management. Requires a lot of capital, some very good accountants and a large number of very mean, very expensive lawyers. A trend popular among the corporate raiders of the 1980's, though they still occur occasionally. They're much more difficult than standard mergers because once you've got the company, you have a whole lot of disgruntled employees and shareholders on your hands. Unless your objective was to buy the company out of existence, in which case you have a whole lot of disgrunted former employees.
