A transaction used for taking a public corporation private financed through the use
of debt funds: bank loans and bonds. Because of the large amount of debt relative to equity in the new
corporation, the bonds are typically rated below investment grade, properly referred to as high-yield bonds or
junk bonds. Investors can participate in an lbo through either the purchase of the debt (i.e., purchase of the
bonds or participation in the bank loan) or the purchase of equity through an lbo fund that specializes in
such investments.
