Experts' reports have become a key factor in providing shareholders and others with independent, objective information about many modern corporate transactions. Sometimes required by law, sometimes voluntary, their rising importance in major transactions has brought increased scrutiny. Is the report sustainable? Is it contestable? This book discusses the critical issues, analysing them with reference to the Corporations Act, ASIC policy, case law and industry codes. The authors are led by Professor Ian Ramsay, member of the Takeovers Panel and author of the recent report to the federal government on auditors' independence, and Jon Webster, a member of the ASX's Listings Advisory Panel and a former Chairman of the Law Council's Corporations Committee.
