Course Aims:

This podcast aims to look at 4 principle areas taking examples from recent deals and current market practices.: the key drivers influencing the choice between a takeover by scheme of arrangement or a contractual offer, whether the scheme of arrangement is actually a more costly procedure, under what circumstances a scheme will still be appropriate assuming cost is a neutral factor and whether there are any disadvantages in opting for a scheme of arrangement

Outcomes:
After completing the course you will:
  • Understand the key factors that distinguish schemes from contractual bids;
  • Understand what how these factors influence different bidders in different ways;
  • Understand the criticisms of schemes on grounds of costs and procedural weaknesses and whether those criticisms hold water;
  • Be aware of the other factors that will weigh in favour of a scheme of arrangement - assuming cost is a neutral factor;
