UK: England and Wales: delay and the issue of a pre-merger certificate

The ICLR has provided a summary for the recent High Court decision Re House-Clean Ltd [2013] WLR (D) 165: see here. The summary's headnote reads: "Delay was not relevant to the court’s consideration of whether the pre-merger requirements within Part 2 of the Companies (Cross-Border Mergers) Regulations 2007 had been satisfied and the court was obliged to issue a pre-merger certificate to a United Kingdom-based merging company if those requirements had been carried out." The decision is not, at present, available on the BAILII database.
