National Conference on New Mergers & Acquisitions Era under the Companies Act, 2013 (Regulatory & Industry Perspective)

22 February, 2014
Hotel Le- Meridian, New Delhi

The new Company Act, 2013 promises to bring easy and efficient way of doing business in India, better governance, improves levels of transparency, enhance accountability, inculcating self compliance and making corporate socially responsible. Some of the key changes to look for are in merger/demerger processes, cross border mergers, fast track mergers between small companies and holding subsidiaries, and provisions relating to minority shareholders protection and exit. We believe that the new Law will help in reducing shareholders litigation and making corporate restructuring process smooth and efficient. Under new law only those shareholders who own more than 10% stake or have more than 5% of the total debt will have the power to oppose any scheme of arrangement. Experts say the bill could potentially trigger a spate of domestic and cross-border mergers and acquisitions and make Indian firms more attractive to PE investors. The new law allows an Indian company to merge with a foreign company, making cross-border mergers and acquisitions easier. The new law also disallows reverse merger of a listed company with that of an unlisted one. This will ensure there is no possibility of 'backdoor listing' through reverse mergers.
