International Acquisition Finance: Law and Practice

This new edition of International Acquisition Finance builds on the success of the first edition in providing a comprehensive and comparative analysis of the law and practice of acquisition finance from the viewpoint of leading lawyers in over 20 different jurisdictions including the UK, China, France, Germany, the Netherlands, and the USA. New jurisdictions for this edition include Hong Kong, India and Poland.

The work contains an overview of the relevant issues to provide the reader with an understanding of structuring cross-border acquisition finance transactions and solutions to relevant legal problems. Each chapter deals with the stages of the proposed transaction and its financing and the related issues which need to be considered in the different jurisdictions.

This fully updated new edition reflects recent changes to the law in all jurisdictions, including the implementation in England of the Companies Act 2006 whose effects include the abolition of the prohibition of financial assistance for private companies and changes to the way in which charges are registered.

Also included is new coverage of acquisitions from insolvency practitioners, regulation affecting financial institution investment practices and other changes brought about by the current economic conditions, as well as a new chapter on public company acquisitions written by Stephen Powell of Slaughter & May. In addition relevant legal and practical considerations involved in public company acquisitions are considered in each jurisdictional chapter.
