The trainer has spent over 20 years in the City advising on a wide range of corporate finance transactions. He now provides corporate finance training courses on takeovers, London listings and other UK market regulation, as well as providing independent corporate finance advice. His courses draw on his extensive technical knowledge and are illustrated with relevant examples from his own experience and recent transactions.
This course covers key rules in the Takeover Code regulating takeovers and the bid strategies and tactics that are used in the current marketplace.
Following the extensive Code Review in 2011, the tactical advantage that possible bidders have had in takeovers has changed and the course examines the numerous effects this has had on bidder and target strategies.
Participants will learn how takeovers are conducted from the initial stages to the completion or lapsing of the bid and will gain an understanding of which strategies and tactics have and which have not worked, with examples from many recent deals.
