UK: Takeover Panel - publication of the 2014/15 annual report and accounts

The Takeover Panel today published its annual report and accounts for the year to 31 March 2015: see here (pdf). The report notes that the 2014/15 year was one of significantly increased public mergers and acquisitions activity, a notable feature of which was the increase in larger transactions: there were 11 transactions of over £1billion in value announced in 2014/15 (only three such deals were announced in the previous year).
