Takeover Rights Agreement

While the drag-along rights themselves can be clearly detailed in an agreement, the distinction between the majority and the minority can be something to watch out for. Companies may have different types of stock categories. A company`s statutes refer to the ownership and voting rights of shareholders, which can affect the majority or minority. In listed companies, “poison pills” refer to different methods to discourage takeover bids. Takeover bids are attempts by a bidder to gain control of a target company, either by requiring voting representatives to be elected to the board of directors, or by acquiring a control block and using the associated votes to be elected to the board of directors. Once the bidder has control of the board of directors, it can manage the objective. As explained below, targets have several resistances to opaques and different types of defence have been called “poison pills” because they harm not only the bidder, but also the objective (or its shareholders). Currently, the most common type of defence of acquisitions is a shareholder law plan. Since the company`s board of directors is able to exchange or eliminate a standard poison pill, it does not generally exclude a proxy fight or any other acquisition attempt that is not accompanied by the acquisition of a significant block of shares of the company. However, it may prevent shareholders from entering into certain agreements that can help in the event of a proxy fight, such as. B an agreement to pay another shareholder`s fees. However, in combination with a staggered board of directors, a shareholder law plan can be a defence.

Drag-along rights help eliminate existing minority owners and sell 100% of a company`s securities to a potential acquirer. A drag-along right is a provision or clause in an agreement that allows a majority shareholder to compel a minority shareholder to sell a business. The majority owner who goes through saturation must give the minority shareholder the same price, conditions and conditions as any other seller. Drag along rights can be introduced through equity raising or during merger and acquisition negotiations.
