stapled financing
 n.— «Stapled financing is a relatively new phenomenon in both the U.S. and Europe that presents its own unique set of conflicts. In such a financing transaction the investment bank running the auction of a business also offers a financing package for the buyer of the business being sold. In other words, as part of the auction, a pre-baked financing package is “stapled” to the target company and sanctioned by the seller.» —“Successfully Managing Private Equity Conflicts Of Interest” by Stuart Mills in Bank of America CapitalEyes Aug., 2004.
