Risk arbitrage activities focus on trading in the securities of one or more of the participants engaged in an extraordinary corporate transaction, such as an exchange offer, a cash tender offer, a merger or acquisition, a leveraged buyout, a corporate reorganization or recapitalization, or a liquidation. In these situations, the arbitrageur seeks to derive a profit by realizing the price differential, or "spread," between the market price of securities purchased or sold short and the market price or value of securities realized in connection with the completion or termination of the extraordinary corporate transaction, or in connection with the adjustment of market prices in anticipation thereof.
