CIRI Comments on Proposed Amendments to Multilateral Instrument 62-104 Take-Over Bids and Issuer Bids (MI 62-104) and changes to National Policy 62-203 Take-Over Bids and Issuer Bids (NP 62-203) June 29, 2015
We commend the CSA for proposing harmonized amendments to the take-over bid regime that put unsolicited or ‘hostile’ bidders and target companies on a more equal footing. We recognize the effort expended to arrive at this alternative co-ordinated proposal that responds to comments from a broad section of market participants following the publication of the initial CSA and AMF proposals in 2013. Different regulatory initiatives seeking to achieve similar outcomes can be confusing, costly and potential conflicting for issuers.
