Sudden arrival of a takeover bid may go beyond a listed company's expectation. Upon receipt of such a bid, regardless of whether it is a solicited or a hostile one, the listed company and its directors and senior management must react immediately to take actions required under the relevant laws and regulations. In light of the global trend of corporate governance enhancement and risk management, the board is advised to formulate a set of takeover response plan.

In this seminar, the speaker will share some useful tips on the compliance obligations on the part of a listed company which is subject to an offer under the Code on Takeovers and Mergers. The following items will be covered: 

  • Rule 22 disclosure of dealing obligations
  • No Resignation of Directors
  • No action of the listed company which can potentially frustrate the offer
  • Profit Forecast implications
  • No special deal
