Recent falls in equity markets mean that many listed companies may appear attractively priced, for a period at least. With significant levels of dry powder available to financial investors and potential delays to at least some private M&A processes, we expect the focus on "take-private" transactions to increase during the next phase of the cycle.

Our Global Guide to Take-Private Transactions sets out a comparison of the key features and requirements applicable to take-private deals in a numbers of jurisdictions around the globe, including indicative timelines.

We will be happy to provide more details of the rules and practice in any jurisdiction.

Note: The content of this guide is current as of 6 August 2020. The high-level guidance in this document is not intended to be comprehensive legal advice. We will be keeping this resource up to date, and adding more jurisdictions over time, so we encourage you to refer to the most recent report available on this page.
