Strategic Buyer

a corporate acquiror in an acquisition that is acquiring for strategic reasons (e.g., to eliminate a competitor or expand into a new market). Strategic Buyers often have an advantage in an auction since they usually expect to benefit from Synergies if the deal goes through and can therefore pay more for the Target. Compare Financial Buyer.
