Poison Pill: What Is It?
A poison pill is a defense tactic companies use to deter or prevent hostile takeovers. These "shareholders rights plans" often threaten to dilute the price of stock enough to give the target company time to find alternative bids.

One company tries to wage a hostile takeover of another company by buying a large percentage of those shares. The company being taken over is called the target. The company or wealthy individual trying to take over is often called a corporate raider. The term poison pill does not refer to the target company harming their own interests. Instead, they're harming the corporate raider's interests.

A breakup fee, also known as a termination fee, is a cost that happens if the seller backs out of a deal during a takeover or merger and acquisition agreements. It gives compensation to the potential purchaser for the time and resources they used to create the deal.

What Is Paid-In Capital?
Paid-in capital (PIC) is the amount of capital investors have "paid in" to a corporation by purchasing shares in exchange for equity.
A paid-in capital account does not show the individual contributions of each investor, just the total amount provided by all investors.
The primary market is the part of the capital market that issues new securities. It is through the primary market that people invest in a corporation by purchasing stock, raising the corporation's PIC figure.
Stock purchased in the open market from other stockholders (secondary market) does not affect paid-in capital.
Additional Paid-In Capital
Paid-in capital can also refer to a balance sheet entry, often listed under stockholder's eq
