Leveraged buyout (LBO) is the acquisition of another company using a significant amount
of borrowed money to meet the cost of acquisition. The assets of the company being
acquired are often used as collateral for the loans, along with the assets of the acquiring
company. The purpose of leveraged buyouts is to allow companies to make large
acquisitions without having to commit a lot of capital.
