War Chest
Slang term for the reserve of Cash a Corporation keeps aside to attempt a takeover or to defend against a hostile takeover.
    
For example, we may hear, "Look for ABC Company to make an Acquisition soon; they've been selling off assets in order to build up their war chest."  It is the money set aside to deal with unexpected changes in the business environment.Companies rarely have a war chest anymore, relying instead on quickly raised Debt which costs nothing to carry when you don't need it. This is not always a reasonable substitute, as the Debt available to a company typically drops as a result of the same actions that require the war chest to be opened.
