Gray Knight

A second, unsolicited bidder in a corporate takeover. A gray knight enters the scene in order to take advantage of any problems between the first bidder and the target company.

Think of a gray knight as a circling vulture waiting to pick clean the leftovers.

In some parts of the world gray is spelled "grey."
