In a bankmail engagement, the bank of a target firm refuses financing options to firms with
takeoverbids. This takeover tool serves multiple purposes, which include 1) thwarting mergeracquisition through financial restrictions, 2) increasing the transaction costs of the competitor’s firm to find other financial options, and 3) to permit more time for the target firm to develop other strategies or resources.
