Grant, Jeremy, Kirchmaier, Thomas and Kirshner, Jodie A. (2009) Financial tunnelling and the mandatory bid rule. European business organization law review, 10 (2). pp. 233-253. ISSN 1566-7529
In this paper, we use case studies to document how dominant shareholders have circumvented mandatory bid rules to appropriate wealth from minority shareholders. Dominant shareholders are numerous in Continental Europe. Creative compliance with mandatory bid rules reveals the failure of boards and regulators to protect minority shareholders and the difficulties of legislating in this area. We propose enhanced means for protecting their interests.
