The Listing rules 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.
On day one participants will learn about the general principles which underpin the Prospectus Rules, Listing Rules and Disclosure and Transparency Rules and be taught about their practical application regarding obtaining listings and executing further transactions.
They will gain a strong understanding of the role of the sponsor, the conditions and methods of listing, the listing procedures and the contents of prospectuses and all aspects of continuing obligations, including the disclosure of inside information.
They will appreciate how the provisions of the EU Prospectus, Market Abuse and Transparency Directives have been brought into UK regulation and examine the different requirements of premium and standard listings compared to those of AIM.
On day two participants will learn about how the Takeover Panel operates in practice and how to apply the six general principles.
The course will cover the issues involved in approaching target companies, making announcements, giving independent advice and complying with share dealing restrictions. Participants will also gain a strong understanding of voluntary, mandatory and partial offers as well as the principles of the bid timetable and the conduct of the parties during an offer period.
The course will examine the circumstances when the Takeover Code is applicable, the relevance of the key rules of the Takeover Code, the application of the Code in practice and the documentation requirements of the Panel.
