Mergers and amalgamations have been popular tools of expansion, survival and growth for corporates. In this book, the provisions of the Companies Act, 1956 and other laws relating to schemes of arrangement encompassing mergers, amalgamations and takeovers are critically examined to enable professionals and others to understand the procedural labyrinth that must be tackled in order to successfully accomplish a scheme of amalgamation, demerger, acquisition, corporate restructuring or compromise. Sridharan and Pandian deal with the law on mergers and amalgamations with reference to corporate as well as tax law. They focus specially on contemporary issues like the Takeover Code, demergers, accounting standards issued on the subject, etc. They present pertinent cases in a concise and systematic manner to ensure that practitioners understand clearly and quickly the scope and significance of rulings laid down by the Courts in relation to mergers, demergers and schemes involving debt and capital restructuring. The narrative is jargon free to the greatest extent possible. This book is ideal even for those who do not have a specialist background in the field.
