The Takeovers Panel has published its latest Statement of Intent. This includes a description of the Panel’s strategic plan for the four year period from 2014 to 2018. One of the impacts the Panel hopes to achieve this period is to ensure that shareholders, acquirers, and their advisers will be better informed about code company schemes and the Panel’s role in those schemes following the recent law changes for schemes.

The Panel’s operating intentions for the year ending 30 June 2015 are contained in itsStatement of Performance Expectations 2014/2015.
