As corporate attorneys in India know well, SEBI’s Takeover Regulations are the single most important legislation for M&A lawyers advising on the acquisition of listed companies in India. Unfortunately – in crucial respects – it also happens to be one of the most complicated. In several areas, neither the letter of the regulations nor judicial pronouncements are available to fill crucial gaps. Conflicting (and frequently unknown) orders of SEBI and SAT further complicate matters for the practitioner. Until this publication, there was no work that wove the jurisprudence of SEBI, SAT and court orders with the rich source of industry practice found in published public announcements and the practical insights of practitioners. This provision-by-provision commentary on the Takeover Regulations can safely claim to be the most exhaustive work on its subject. Apart from its scrupulous analysis of more than 400 decided cases, it also draws extensively on published market practice, SEBI’s guidance notes and the author’s formidable experience in listed company M&A. The book will serve as a useful tool for Indian and foreign law firms, in-house legal cells of listed Indian companies, investment banks, practicing company secretaries, chartered accountants, law schools and business schools.
