Financial markets are moving towards globalisation, especially within the European market. In Europe a unique securities market has not been achieved, so each member state has his own regulations concerning listed companies and particularly take over bids. The book presents, state by state the essential of the regulation on listing procedures, authorities, acquisition of share, mandatory offers, defensive against hostile tender offers...rules that are issued from company law, securities law or recommendation and codes. It also includes a chapter on European rules.
