Here we present the Swedish Corporate governance Board’s Takeover Rules for regulated markets and for certain trading platforms.

Rules for regulated markets

By law 1, a stock exchange is to have rules for public takeover bids for shares traded on a regulated market. The rules must meet the requirements set out in the Takeover Directive 2 and be otherwise appropriate.
