The Panel on Takeovers and Mergers (commonly referred to as the “Takeover Panel”, or simply the “Panel”) is an independent body, established in 1968, which is responsible for oversight of takeovers of all companies “listed” in London, or which are based in the UK and whose shares are otherwise publicly traded. Created to protect the reputation of the City of London when the era of public company takeovers first began, the Panel became a unique institution whose authority was first given recognition by the courts in the Datafin case (1986) and is now based in statute pursuant to the EU Takeover Directive of 2004.
Under its statutory powers to make rules concerning takeover activity, the Panel issues and administers the City Code on Takeovers and Mergers (the “Code”), whose formal Rules regulate the conduct of takeovers subject to the Panel’s jurisdiction and it supervises and regulates takeovers and other matters to which the Code applies. The Panel’s central objective, it states, is to ensure fair treatment for all shareholders in takeover bids.
