Shareholding Disclosure Case Study: UK Takeover Panel

Case Study UK Takeover Panel

How we helped a tier 1 investment bank under the scrutiny of the UK Panel on Takeovers and Mergers

The challenge

A tier 1 investment bank came under scrutiny after the UK Panel on Takeovers and Mergers identified that the bank was breaching the Takeover Code by submitting incorrect disclosures of its transactions/dealings. 

The bank was told it must improve its reporting immediately or else it would face considerable sanctions. 

How we solved it

Through our expertise and practical experience we were able to resolve the issues faster and more cost effectively than they could have achieved internally. The bank benefited from our Shareholding Disclosure Service through our hands-on assistance with its internal data, as well as a ready-made process and system which resolved its regulatory issues.

The bank is now able to make accurate and timely disclosures and the Takeover Panel has taken no further action.
