What is Bust Up Takeover?

Definition of Bust Up Takeover

A Bust Up Takeover is a corporate takeover, in which the buyer sells off some of the targets company's assets ('asset stripping') in order to pay off some of the debt taken on by the acquirer, in order to finance the initial buyout. This strategy is typically used when a target company has undervalued assets that the buyer can exploit, in order to make a profit.
