Takeover

Takeover is a business case when one company gets control of another company by buying a significant part of its shares. Takeovers are typically used by a huge company to gain control over a smaller one.

Don’t confuse takeovers with mergers and acquisitions even though they have similar meanings. While acquisition implies unforced buy-out by mutual consent, a takeover usually means that a company resists its purchase by another company.
