CMS publishes Guide to Mandatory Offers and Squeeze-Outs


Public takeovers in Europe are on the rise and the transactions require increasing expertise in both the relevant local jurisdictions, as well as knowledge of EU law - especially the new EU Takeover Bids Directive, which sets minimum standards for public takeover bids.

The CMS Corporate Practice Group has therefore published the 'Guide to Mandatory Offers and Squeeze-outs'. This guide provides an excellent overview of the legal framework for mandatory offers and squeeze-outs of minority shareholders applicable to corporate acquisitions in 21 European countries.

This CMS Guide draws on the local expertise of CMS lawyers across Europe and provides information on the EU framework, as well as the specific requirements unique in 21 different jurisdictions: the 15 EU Member States, as well as Switzerland, Russia, Ukraine, Bosnia, Croatia and Serbia.
