Greenmail refers to the agreement between a large shareholder and a company in which the shareholder agrees to sell his stock back to the company, usually at a premium, in exchange for the promise not to seek control of the company for a specified period of time.
Antigreenmail provisions prevent such arrangements unless the same repurchase offer is made to all shareholders or approved a shareholder vote. There are some states that have antigreenmail laws.
