Leveraged buyout

• Abbreviated LBO. An acquisition technique involving the use of a large amount of debt to purchase a firm; an example of a financial merger.

• Abbreviated LBO. A transaction used for taking a public corporation private financed through the use of debt funds: bank loans and bonds.

Investors can participate in an LBO through either the purchase of the debt (i.e., purchase of the bonds or participation in the bank loan) or the purchase of equity through an LBO fund that specializes in such investments.
