Bear Hug

Do you know what is a Bear Hug? In stock market jargon, a Bear Hug is a very generous offer made by one company to take over another company. A Bear Hug is usually made when there is doubt that the target company will be willing to sell. When a Bear Hug is made, the deal would normally be done because the management of the target company is legally obliged to look after its shareholders.
