While Western economies generally display dispersed shareholding in listed companies, Asian economies commonly have concentrated shareholding also in publicly listed companies. The principal analysis in Comparative Takeover Regulation relates to the role of takeover regulation in different economies. In the Asian context, the nature of takeover regulation may necessitate a different approach, with greater emphasis on the mandatory bids and disclosure of substantial shareholding. The likelihood of hostile takeovers will be minimal. It is these differences among various jurisdictions that strike at the heart of Varottil and Wan's new work. Ideal for educational institutions that teach corporate law, corporate governance, and mergers and acquisitions, as well as for law firms, corporate counsel and other practitioners, Comparative Takeover Regulation provides students and scholars with brand new analysis of this increasingly important field of study.

MEDIA REVIEWS
'Wai Yee Wan and Umakanth Varottil have done an invaluable service by collecting a comparative study of Asian takeover law as well as a volume which examines the theoretical underpinnings of takeover law itself. The essays are practical while also providing a thorough and intelligent study of the variety of Asian takeover law. Practitioners will find this volume an invaluable resource while academics in this area will find that this is the 'must read' book for use in in their research.' Steven Davidoff Solomon, University of California, Berkeley and The Deal Professor for The New York Times
'Comparative Takeover Regulation: Global and Asian Perspectives is a welcome addition to the study of comparative takeover regulation. The chapters in the collection are theoretically and empirically informed and clearly advance our understanding of takeover regulation in multiple Asian jurisdictions. In particular, the chapters in the collection provide a very useful analysis of the nature and operation of takeover regulation in the jurisdictions covered in the book, and provide real insight into varied drivers and effects of regulatory transplants in these jurisdictions. The chapters in the book will quickly find their way onto Takeover Regulation reading lists.' David Kershaw, London School of Economics and Political Science
'A pathfinding international collaboration on a map for the uncharted territory of takeover regulation in Asia, this book demonstrates comparative corporate law scholarship at its best, displaying, with a high degree of sensitivity and sophistication, the subtle interplay among law, politics and economics. It will surely serve as an indispensable stepping stone for those who aspire to grasp regulatory issues on takeovers in major Asian jurisdictions from a global and systematic perspective.' Kon Sik Kim, Professor and Dean Emeritus, Seoul National University School of Law
'This book is bound to become a standard reference for readers interested in comparative takeover regulation, as it provides a better understanding about M&A in Asia. It poses intriguing questions for scholars and practitioners, such as how Asian countries differ from their Western peers, and how transplantation has led to a wealth of variations. This fascinating volume addresses them by delineating the takeover dynamics in eight Asian jurisdictions, and provides us with a series of compelling answers. Through joint efforts, not only are nuances and evolutions explained convincingly, but also the legal origins analysis is put under reconsideration.' Guo Li, Professor and Vice Dean, Peking University Law School
'... is destined to become both a useful reference source for practitioners and scholars who work in the area of takeover regulation, as well as a source of inspiration for further research in this increasingly important area of regulation in Asia.' Andrew Godwin, Australian Journal of Asian Law
