Article summary

Market Tracker’s weekly highlights provide updates on market activity and issues relevant to public company transactions, tailored for PSL Corporate subscribers. This week features our UK Shareholder Activism trend report, produced in association with White & Case and Activist Insight. The report analyses the period 2015 - 2020, with a focus on developments in H1 2020 and the outlook and predictions for H2 2020 and beyond. It looks at how companies can prepare for an activist approach and provides tips on how activists can run a successful campaign in the UK. We also report on Caesars Entertainment's recommended cash offer for William Hill, regarded by some analysts to significantly undervalue the company. The highlights also contain a summary of all transactions announced this week within the scope of Market Tracker, a digest of the latest developments in ongoing takeovers and IPOs, and details of events to look out for in the next seven days. or take a trial to read the full analysis.
