Raider

An individual or entity attempting to acquire enough equity in a 

Target

 company to assume a controlling interest, usually through a hostile takeover 

Bid

. Such an 

Interest

 allows the 

Raider

 to replace the existing management with his 

Own

 representatives, completing the takeover. A 

Raider

 would typically 

Target

 a company with undervalued 

Asset

, which would be relatively inexpensive to take over. Once the 

Raider

 has accumulated 5% of the shares in a company, he/she must report this fact to the 

SEC

 and the 

Target

 company.
