Forward Triangular Merger

A type of merger that occurs when the subsidiary of the acquiring corporation merges with the target firm.

In a forward triangular merger, the subsidiary's equity merges with the target firm's stock. As a result of the merger, the target becomes a part of the original subsidiary of the acquirer. This form of acquisition is often used for regulatory reasons.
