Asset acquisition

Buyout

 strategy in which key assets of the 

Target

 company are purchased, rather than 

ITS

 shares. This is particularly popular in the case of 

Bankrupt

 companies, who might otherwise have valuable assets which could be of use to other companies, but whose 

Financing

 situation makes the company unattractive for buyers (an 

Asset

 acquisition strategy may be pursued in almost any case where the potential 

Target

 company has an unattractive 

Financing

 structure). Further, the 

Asset

 acquisition strategy might be pursued if the acquirer is interested in certain specific assets, and not all the possible 

Target

 assets.
