Course programme

The importance of successfully navigating through the choppy waters of law and regulation is crucial for the survival of any organisation. It is not at all hyperbolic to state that many of the strategies involving various corporate decisions are dictated by the existing legal/regulatory framework and the complexities surrounding it. Just to cite an example, ICICI Ltd. went for a reverse merger with ICICI Bank mainly because of the potential legal and regulatory hurdles which might arise with respect to the transfer of banking licence which had originally been issued to the latter by RBI.

The main objective of this course is to cover the legal and regulatory framework involved in some of the most commonly used commercial transactions like joint ventures, merger/amalgamation, acquisition/take over, delisting of securities, preferential allotment, qualified institutional placement, routing of foreign investment, investments in foreign markets, Foreign Currency Convertible Bonds, External Commercial Borrowings, leveraged buy out, private equity investments etc. Having a reasonable understanding of the legal and regulatory framework will definitely help the manager in designing the strategies and counter strategies for a particular transaction. This happens to be very true in the case of a merger, take over, or deals involving foreign investment as all of them tend to be heavily regulated.

The course will try to provide substantial insights about the regulations framed by SEBI like Takeover Code, Issue of Capital and Disclosure Requirements (ICDR) Regulations 2009, Delisting of Equity Shares Regulations 2009, Venture Capital Funds Regulations etc. Another area of focus will be the regulations dealing with foreign investment like the relevant press notes issued by Department of Industrial Policy and Promotion (DIPP-Government of India), RBI notifications on FEMA and master circulars dealing with inward and outward investments.

Some of the case studies to be covered as part of the course include Tata Tea-Tetley deal, KKR-Flextronics deal, Tata Steel-Corus, Arcelor Mittal's acquisition of Uttam Galva Steels, UB Group- Whyte & Mackay deal, demerger of L&T's cement business, controversies surrounding Vodafone's acquisition of Hutch Telecom with respect to violation of sectoral caps etc.
