15. Reconstructions, Mergers and Takeovers  

This chapter considers public disclosure, market regulation and the public investigation of companies. The ‘price’ that companies are required to pay for the privilege of incorporation (separate personality) and limited liability is compulsory publicity about their affairs. The Companies Acts’ disclosure rules are largely based on this philosophy. This chapter discusses general disclosure obligations; public regulation of securities markets; transparency obligations; disclosure and public offerings of shares; market abuse and market manipulation; and public investigation of companies.
