Creeping Tender Offer

Creeping Tender Offer
A takeover strategy involving the gradual acquisition of the target company's shares. A creeping tender offer is conducted through the open financial markets rather than as a direct bid to the shareholders as is common in regular tender offer procedures.

Since an acquirer purchases shares through the open market, a premium is not offered to the shareholder. Creeping tender offers are primarily used to try to circumvent provisions of the Williams Act and obtain shares at a non-inflated price.
