UK Takeover Law and the Board Neutrality Rule, Hardback Book

UK Takeover Law and the Board Neutrality Rule Hardback


This book encompasses theoretical and empirical analysis of takeovers and their relationship with society and the State in a rapidly changing social and commercial landscape.

It also assesses the experience of those affected by the process of law, for example employees who may find themselves disadvantaged by the operation of shareholder primacy during takeovers.

Case studies on two formerly British companies (Corus Steel and Cadbury) which were taken over by foreign companies are also used.

For both Cadbury and Corus, a case study method helped to highlight how the takeovers impacted on the interests of employees, senior management and suppliers, and the predatory role played by arbitrageurs (short-term investors) during the offer period.
