   A corporate takeover or merger that does not involve cash, but that is carried out by the exchange of shares in one company for those in the other. Sometimes shares in two companies will be swapped for equity in a third newly-created enterprise in a ratio reflecting the underlying assets or worth of the two companies merging.
