Functionality of Takeover Regimes in Asia
Abhishek Dadoo and Shruti Kunisetty
Takeover laws play a critical role in regulating the market for corporate control and therefore directly impact public M&A in a country. While the last few decades have seen a rapid evolution in the takeover deal space, the takeover regimes in certain developing countries, like India, are at a nascent stage. There is abundant scholarship surrounding the developed takeover regimes, like that of the United Kingdom and the United States. In this article, the authors seek to investigate the local peculiarities of the developing countries to which the Anglo-American takeovers regimes have been imported and the ways in which they have shaped the practical operation of these borrowed regimes.
