FINANCIAL ANALYSIS is analysis of a companys financial statement, usually by accountants or financial analysts.
HOSTILE TAKEOVER occurs when a company attempts to buy out another whether they like it or not. A hostile takeover can occur only through publicly traded shares, as it requires the acquirer to bypass the board of directors and purchase the shares from other sources. This is difficult unless the shares of the target company are widely available and easily purchased (i.e., they have high liquidity). A hostile takeover may presage a corporate raid.
GEARING is the proportion of the capital employed of a company that is financed by lenders rather than shareholders.
