Post Cadbury-Kraft takeover changes force advisers to rethink strategies
The 19 September will see the implementation of the changes to the takeover code that have resulted from the review undertaken by the Takeover Panel after the takeover of Cadbury by Kraft Foods in 2010. There will be significant changes to the strategies adopted by offerors and their advisers as a result of the new code. There will also be an increased focus on the interests of the various categories of stakeholders affected, including employees, in addition to the well-established protection of the interests of shareholders.
