Public takeovers in Germany (Edition 2019)

This newsletter provides a high level overview of public takeovers carried out in Germany during the year of 2018 under the German Takeover Act (WpÜG) and of recent developments under German public takeover law. 

Our newsletter provides a statistical analysis of public takeovers in Germany during the past calendar year and a summary of what we believe to be the most important takeover bid for the German takeover market, i.e. the takeover of innogy SE by E.ON Verwaltungs SE. Further, we discuss recent legal developments such as the judgment of the German Higher Regional Court (OLG) Frankfurt/Main concerning third-party protection in the German Takeover Act, the judgement of the German Federal Supreme Court (BGH) concerning so-called "acting in concert" as well as the new edition of the BaFin's Issuer's Guide (Emittentenleitfaden).
