The Council Directive of 21 April 2004 on takeover bids sets forth the general principles applicable to takeover bids and clarifies certain minimum rules with respect to the procedure for a takeover bid, the obligation to make a mandatory bid in the event a minimum threshold is crossed and the majority shareholder's squeeze-out right as well as the minority shareholders' sell-out right. Furthermore, the Directive defines the authority which is competent to approve offer documents and supervise takeover bids, and provides for optional restrictions on the actions of the target company's management and on defence mechanisms. This book discusses the Takeover Directive and its implementing rules in each Member State of the European Union and the European Economic Area, providing companies and their advisors with useful insight into the legal framework and principles applicable to takeover bids in the region.

It provides the reader with an appreciation of the distinctive characteristics of UK occupational pension schemes, how they sit within the capital markets and their social and fiduciary responsibilities. Providing a holistic analysis of pension risk, both from the trustee and the corporate perspective, the essays cover the crucial role of the employer covenant, financing and investment risk, developments in longevity risk hedging and insurance de-risking, and best practice scheme administration.

The Energy Charter Treaty has come of age, with almost 50 States parties and a small but growing body of arbitral case law. In this new study of the Treaty's investment protection provisions, Thomas Roe and Matthew Happold set out to identify and explain the Treaty's principal provisions and to suggest answers to some of the difficult problems thrown up by its drafting. They discuss in detail questions such as the standards of protection granted by the Treaty and the international responsibility of States for breaches of the Treaty, the various procedures available for the vindication of rights under the Treaty and the conditions to be satisfied before a claimant's complaint may be considered on the merits. Specific issues addressed include the impact of EU law on claims under the Treaty and the Treaty's provisions concerning taxation.

This book offers a general outlook of the legal framework governing companies limited by shares under Italian law for students, scholars and legal practitioners. It contains a presentation of the theory of the firm and its connections with Italian company law, in an effort to move these concepts closer to the understanding of international readers. The Authors have been teaching Italian business law to international students at Bocconi University in Milan for many years and this book owes much to their academic experience. At the same time, however, the Authors have leveraged on their experience as international business lawyers in order to keep the explanation plain and practical to any possible extent.

The Prospectus Directive of 4 November 2003 sets the rules on the publication of a prospectus in the event that securities are offered to the public or admitted to trading on a stock exchange in the European Union. These rules apply in all 30 member states of the European Economic Area. Since member states decide to a large extent how to implement the Directive in their law, the rules in the different member states will differ substantially. It is therefore important not only to have an understanding of the rules laid down in the Directive but also to obtain knowledge of the rules applicable in the different states. As an English book it provides an understanding for non-Europeans of the rules applicable on the publication of a prospectus. A comprehensive table of contents, text of the European Directive and a list of national implementing laws are also included.

This Publication is the second in the European Procurement Law Series. European institutions have developed common principles and rules which are applicable all over the EU. While in some cases rules and practice from some Member States may have influenced the developments of public procurement law at EU level, European provisions will more often be divergent from the rules previously in force in most Member States. Once they penetrate the domestic legal orders, the sources of European law interact with national law. The Series will explore how and to what extent the national laws of a number of Member States have tried to accommodate European rules and principles. The Main Objective of public procurement regulation is to provide the government with the supplies, services, and works it needs to operate. This primary objective is connected to the principle of value for money and for the European Union with the aim to ensure the functioning of the internal market in public procurement. However, other objectives related to environmental and social concerns have always played a role as well. These range from the award of contracts to workshops for the disabled to strict environmental specifications. These 'secondary' or 'horizontal' objectives, also referred to as 'green procurement', 'sustainable procurement' or 'social procurement', are the subject of this book. The analysis covers the European Union internal market law of green and social procurement with emphasis on the interpretation, implementation and practice in a range of Member States of the EU and includes a comparative study.

While Western economies generally display dispersed shareholding in listed companies, Asian economies commonly have concentrated shareholding also in publicly listed companies. The principal analysis in Comparative Takeover Regulation relates to the role of takeover regulation in different economies. In the Asian context, the nature of takeover regulation may necessitate a different approach, with greater emphasis on the mandatory bids and disclosure of substantial shareholding. The likelihood of hostile takeovers will be minimal. It is these differences among various jurisdictions that strike at the heart of Varottil and Wan's new work. Ideal for educational institutions that teach corporate law, corporate governance, and mergers and acquisitions, as well as for law firms, corporate counsel and other practitioners, Comparative Takeover Regulation provides students and scholars with brand new analysis of this increasingly important field of study.

Over the last decade, European company law has been completely re-written. Virtually no EU measure remained unchanged and most of them have undergone fundamental reform. This is astonishing since almost half of these measures only came into existence after the turn of the millennium. In the last five years, 'modern' European company law has been characterized by a strong foundation of accounting law: i.e. the basic information scheme in international models (IFRS); the practicability and reality of cross-border mobility in its different types; and the considerable success (at last) of European company types, namely in the form of the European Company, which has been adopted by many blue chip companies, and, finally, by governance. The latter is also experiencing a remarkable renaissance of shareholders' rights, namely voting right schemes. In times of crisis, this is the equipment with which the challenges have to be met. European Company Law first discusses the EC/EU law, including all instruments through which it is transposed into the national law systems. However, where no EC/EU law exists, a comparative law discussion and the policy aspects - namely law and economics - fill the gaps. The whole organism of (limited liability) company law is thus covered. In addition to organization, accounting, finance, and the closely-related capital market law, this second edition covers the cornerstones of EC/EU corporate tax and insolvency law. This broad scientific perspective of the 'European' in company law remains unique and will be of greatest value for top-level practice and highly-ranked policy discussions.

Financial regulation has entered into a new era, as many foundational economic theories and policies supporting the existing infrastructure have been and are being questioned following the financial crisis. Goodhart et al’s seminal monograph "Financial Regulation: Why, How and Where Now?" (Routledge:1998) took stock of the extent of financial innovation and the maturity of the financial services industry at that time, and mapped out a new regulatory roadmap. This book offers a timely exploration of the "Why, How and Where Now" of financial regulation in the aftermath of the crisis in order to map out the future trajectory of financial regulation in an age where financial stability is being emphasised as a key regulatory objective. The book is split into four sections: the objectives and regulatory landscape of financial regulation; the regulatory regime for investor protection; the regulatory regime for financial institutional safety and soundness; and macro-prudential regulation. The discussion ranges from theoretical and policy perspectives to comprehensive and critical consideration of financial regulation in the specifics. The focus of the book is on the substantive regulation of the UK and the EU, as critical examination is made of the unravelling and the future of financial regulation with comparative insights offered where relevant especially from the US. Running throughout the book is consideration of the relationship between financial regulation, financial stability and the responsibility of various actors in governance. This book offers an important contribution to continuing reflections on the role of financial regulation, market discipline and corporate responsibility in the financial sector, and upon the roles of regulatory authorities, markets and firms in ensuring the financial health and security of all in the future.

The distinction between in-house and ex-house providing is fundamental and is well known in practice and theory. It is of utmost importance, as the consequence of the categorization of an arrangement as "in-house" is, that it falls outside of the scope of the EC public procurement rules. However, for various reasons, it is often very difficult to establish whether an arrangement is in-house or not. The case law from the European Court of Justice on this subject is highly complex, whereas the case law at national level is sparse. Furthermore, the legal literature both at national and international levels has been relatively limited. This book deals with in-house in a broader perspective and looks into the interpretation, implementation, and practice at the national level in a range of Member States. This book is the first in the new European Procurement Law series, which will contribute to a strengthened dialogue between the various legal cultures in the field of procurement.
