Glossary Term: TENDER OFFER

Definition(s) for TENDER OFFER:


1. ) refers to a formal offer to all or a large group of stockholders to purchase their shares on fixed and substantially non-negotiable terms. The party making the offer customarily reserves the right to accept all, none, or a specific number of the shares presented for acceptance. In the USA, tender offers of public companies are regulated under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934.

2. ) A public offer to buy shares from existing stockholders of a company, usually made by another company attempting an acquisition. So-called because stockholders are asked to tender (surrender) their holdings for a premium above the current market price.

3. ) In an offer by tender, buyers of shares specify the price at which they are willing to purchase.
