US Firms in London: Business benefits
On 6 May this year, the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) proposed significant changes to its cross-border M&A rules, aiming to expand and enhance their usefulness. The rules, first adopted in 1999, provide relief from the US tender offer and registration requirements that would otherwise apply to takeovers of non-US public companies with US shareholders, whether or not such companies have a US listing. They encourage bidders to include US shareholders in bids for non-US companies, while providing US shareholders with the protections of the US federal securities laws where necessary.
