Corporate analysis: Panel Statement 2018/8 is considered, in which the Takeover Panel (Panel) refused a request by Mr David King that the Hearings Committee (Committee) be convened to review a decision of the Executive. The Executive had decided to refuse Mr King’s request for an extension of time to send an offer document to the shareholders of Rangers International Football Club plc (Rangers) pursuant to Rule 24.1 of the City Code on Takeovers and Mergers (Code).
The Executive had previously ruled that Mr King had incurred an obligation under Rule 9 of the Code to make a mandatory offer for Rangers as a result of him and his concert parties controlling voting rights attached to more than 30% of the issued share capital of Rangers. This ruling had been upheld by the Committee and the Takeover Appeal Board.
