All-Cash Deal

The term “all-cash deal” refers to a purchase which is made in cash rather than through the acquisition of debt or equities.

The term is often used in reference to mergers and acquisitions in which the acquiring company purchases shares in the target company from shareholders in cash. The target company’s balance sheet equity is not affected.
