Li & Fung/IDS: special treatment for 1 shareholder
While this will benefit CCASS Participants, it plays fast-and-loose with the Bermuda Companies Act and the Takeover Code. It would have been better to amend the scheme to allow all registered shareholders to make partial elections, rather than coming to an "arrangement" with one registered shareholder outside the terms of the scheme. (28-Sep-2010)
Li & Fung/IDS offer has sting
The all-or-nothing nature of the share alternative, now worth 23% more than the cash offer, means that CCASS, which holds almost all the public shares in IDS, cannot offer the share alternative to its participants. Webb-site urges Li & Fung and IDS to amend the scheme to allow registered holders to make partial elections for shares. Otherwise, if you snooze, you lose. (24-Sep-2010)
