Abstract

Proposed takeover rules will produce winners and losers and need rethinking, according to a new report from the C.D. Howe Institute. In “The Future of Poison Pills in Canada: Are Takeover Bid Reforms Needed?,” author Anita Anand, a University of Toronto law professor, assesses the rules proposed by the Canadian Securities Administrators (CSA), and recommends a key change: do not implement the proposed 120-day bid period and retain the current 35 day period.

Keywords: Innovation and Business Growth
