Chain principle offer triggered -

In February 2013, the Takeovers and Mergers Panel (“Panel”) ruled that an obligation under the Takeovers Code to make a chain principle offer for Hong Kong-listed Greenheart Holdings Limited (“Greenheart”) would be triggered if Sino-Forest Corporation (“Sino-Forest”) proceeded with the transfer of substantially all its assets, including an indirect shareholding of 63.6% of Greenheart, to a new company wholly owned by Sino-Forest’s creditors. The Panel also decided that no waiver of such mandatory offer obligation would be available.
