The Australian Securities and Investments
Commission (ASIC) has released an updated Regulatory Guide
60 Schemes of arrangement (RG 60) and a report on issues
that arose out of consultation with industry.
The update will provide that:
- ASIC will consider any objections to a scheme, in determining
whether ASIC will give its typical ‘no intentions’ statement to the
court in relation to the scheme;
- The Commission will closely consider schemes that offer
collateral benefits and/or unequal consideration; and
- ASIC will examine schemes that result in a reverse takeover on
a case-by-case basis.
The decision follows specific industry
consultation on the issue of objectors to schemes after the last
update in 2009.
