Bell Gully's Takeovers Market Practice Report
Bell Gully's Takeovers Market Practice Report is the first in-depth analysis of New Zealand takeovers data since the introduction of the Takeovers Code in 2001.
The report finds that takeovers that share a combination of two factors – board backing and a price that meets or beats the independent adviser's valuation range – have almost always been successful. It also reinforces that preparation is critical to success. Securing an advance commitment from shareholders or holding a pre-bid stake substantially increases the likelihood of an offer succeeding.
