Safe harbor  

Definition 1.

Often used in risk arbitrage as a form of shark repellent. A target company acquires a business so onerously regulated that it makes the target less attractive, giving it, in effect, a safe harbor.
 

Definition 2.

The ability of a company's management to discuss in good faith a company's prospects and financial projections with analysts and investors without fearing litigation.
 

Definition 3.

The "Safe Harbor for Forward-Looking Information" allows company management to discuss in good faith a company's prospects and financial projections with analysts and investors without fearing litigation. (From the Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995.)
 

Definition 4.

1. A legal provision to reduce or eliminate liability as long as good faith is demonstrated. 2. A form of shark repellent where a target company acquires a business that is so poorly regulated that the target itself is less attractive. In effect, this gives the target company a "safe harbor." 3. An accounting method that avoids legal or tax regulations and allows for a simpler (usually) method of determining a tax consequence than is available following the precise language of the tax code.
