On 23 September 2009, the Takeover Panel published certain minor amendments to the Takeover Code which take effect from 1 October 2009.

The majority of the amendments to the Code reflect the implementation of the final provisions of the Companies Act 2006 which come into force on 1 October 2009 and the repeal of the relevant provisions of the Companies Act 1985.

An electronic copy of the updated Code will be available on the Panel's website from 1 October 2009.
