Leveraged recapitalization

Tactic used by the 

Target

 of a hostile 

Takeover

 in which a company makes itself less desirable by borrowing a large sum of 

Money

 and distributing it to 

ITS

 shareholders, by either initiating a buyback 

Program

 or paying larger than normal dividends. In this way, the company might be able to scare away undesirable acquirers who do not want to take on so much 

Debt

, while at the same time retaining shareholder 

Interest

 in the company (in spite of it being so heavily leveraged).
