This exposition of the modern law of corporate finance in Ireland has been designed for both practitioners and students. It examines the advances in legislative developments, most notably the Stock Exchange Act 1995, the Investment Intermediaries Act 1995 and the Irish Takeover Panel Act 1997. It provides coverage of the law and practice of corporate finance ranging over the common law principles and case law, statutory rules and industry codes. Among the areas covered are: corporate governance and corporate ethics; securities regulation; the Stock Exchange Rules; the sale of corporate debt; and the regulation and operation of mergers and take-overs of both public and private companies. The Irish Take-over rules are considered, as well as the impact of competition law on domestic mergers.
