QLLM373 Mergers and Acquisitions (M and As) (Sem 2)
Cannot also take QLLM362/QLLM363
This module is a corporate and financial regulation module analysing transactions using sophisticated methodologies. The module will focus on issues such as: due diligence, purchase sale agreements and contractual governance; the role of the board of directors in an acquisition/financing transaction; the permissibility and regulation of takeover defences in the UK, the US and the EU; the protection of minority shareholders in common law and civil law jurisdictions; the protection of other constituencies such as employees affected by control transactions; and financial assistance regulation in the UK, US and the EU. The module is strongly committed to presenting a global and comparative perspective highlighting the contemporary principles and trends of corporate finance rather than the pointillist and ephemeral details of national rule books.
