The system implementation agreement typically includes “transaction protection mechanisms” such as: In a merger and acquisition context, arrangement plans are often used in friendly, non-hostile takeovers of all outstanding shares of a company by a acquirer, including “privately owned” transactions in which shares of a public company are acquired. They are also used when acquiring shares of unlisted companies, especially if the shares are widely used. The program is usually announced publicly for the first time when the program implementation agreement is reached. This announcement usually includes a full copy of the agreement on the implementation of the system. Takeover in a single step, without each shareholder having to be a party. In the context of mergers and acquisitions, plans of arrangement may allow a buyer to acquire 100% of the shares of a target company without having to enter into a share purchase agreement with each shareholder or make an offer accepted by each shareholder. Instead, a purchaser enters into an “arrangement agreement” with the target company in which a plan of arrangement is proposed. The plan of arrangement must be approved by a special resolution of the target company`s shareholders (usually two-thirds of the votes cast by the voting shares) either at a general meeting or on the basis of resolutions approved in writing by all shareholders. If the plan of arrangement receives such approval and is approved by the court (see below), it will bind all shareholders of the target company, including holders who may not have voted for or voted against. Plans of agreement must be approved by the court in a “final order” after considering the fairness of the agreement to the affected shareholders. For most arrangement transactions, the target company also seeks an “interim injunction” that requires a meeting of its shareholders to approve the plan of arrangement. While there is no guarantee that the court will approve a plan of arrangement, it is unusual for a plan of arrangement not to be approved by the court if the plan of arrangement has been approved by a significant majority of the affected shareholders. While shareholders who wish to object to a plan of arrangement have the right to attend the court hearing and argue that it is unfair, legal proceedings are generally not dismissed.
