This Market Tracker Trend Report examines UK public M&A activity in the first half of 2014. The report provides an in-depth analysis of 39 firm and possible announcements, covering topics including transaction structure, foreign bidder activity, nature of consideration and specific contractual provisions such as matching / topping rights and reverse break-fee agreements.
Whilst our cut off point for the preparation of the report was 30 June 2014 for announced deals, we have also covered bid progress, outcomes, developments and features running into the second half of the year where this might be helpful in considering highlighted trends.
This trend report features expert commentary from George Swan, partner at Freshfields Bruckhaus Deringer LLP, and Rebecca Gordon, partner at Dentons.
