ABSTRACT
The article assesses the role of public relations in the industrial management of business enterprises. The article states that public relations is essential to the routine communications surrounding any tender offer, proxy fight, or leveraged buyout, friendly or unfriendly. Public relations plays an even more critical role, if the defense is going to involve such strategies as self-tenders, the sale of crown jewels, or open-market purchase programs. When these defenses are used, it is critically important that the groundwork be laid with a carefully planned communications program.
