ASX submission: Review of approvals required for reverse takeovers

By Alyssa Thai

Read OM’s submission to the ASX’s call for consultation on whether it should introduce a rule making ‘reverse takeovers’ – where the ‘bidder’ shareholders end up with less than half the merged company – conditional on bidder shareholder approval. ASX is rare among global peer exchanges such as the LSE, HKEx, SGX and NYSE in not requiring any bidder shareholder approval in this situation.
