We are pleased to announce the release of our Public M&A Report for 2021.
This report, which we intend to publish annually, provides a round-up of public M&A transactions involving Irish incorporated companies in 2021 and the trends, developments and highlights which can be derived from them. We have focused on transactions that completed or were terminated in 2021 and which were subject to the supervision of the Irish Takeover Panel.
The transactions featured concern Irish incorporated public companies whose shares are traded on NASDAQ or NYSE or on Euronext Dublin or the London Stock Exchange. Non-Irish incorporated companies are not generally subject to the Irish Takeover Rules (subject to some exceptions, none of which applied during the period under review).
We comment on the outlook for regulatory and other developments in 2022, which include substantive amendments to the Irish Takeover Rules which will align the Irish Takeover Rules in some respects with the City Code and in terms of potential for shareholder activism.
We hope you will find our conclusions interesting. Click here or follow the link provided below to download the full report.
