Rules Governing Substantial Acquisitions of Shares (SARs)

The former rules issued by the Panel on Takeovers and Mergers (www.practicallaw.com/A36608) (Panel) which were designed to restrict the speed with which a person could acquire shares (or rights over them) in a company that would give an aggregate holding of between 15% and 30% of the voting rights of the company. The SARs ceased to apply once an offer had been announced. The SARs were abolished on 20 May 2006.
