German Public Takeover Law

Bilingual Edition with an Introduction to the Law

Since it was enacted early in 2002, the German Securities Acquisition and Takeover Act has proven to be a well functioning body of law for public takeovers. With ample opportunity to work with the rules, all parties offerors, target company directors and managers, regulators, and courts have established a firm basis for proceeding confidently with public mergers and acquisitions and public-to-private transactions in Germany. This shift from the uncertain business environment in which the first edition of this book appeared in 2002 calls for an update. This new edition takes into account all the regulatory and judicial clarifications that have emerged during the intervening years, as well as the 2006 amendments that make use of the option not to apply the restrictive European model concerning defensive measures of target companies against public takeover attempts. Among the features of the Act (and the legal framework it represents) considered here are the following: the European passport for public offers; squeeze-out options for offerors; sell-out option for shareholders of target companies; the role of the regulator (BaFin); and restructuring measures after a successful offer. A substantial portion of the book is taken up with texts of the relevant German laws and regulations, synoptically arranged in both German and English. In particular it contains the complete Securities Acquisition and Takeover Act and all of its related regulations, together with substantial portions of the Stock Corporation Act and many other statutory materials that are relevant in public takeover and public-to-private transactions. The German Public Takeover Law, Second Edition, will greatly assist strategic and financial investors, their investment bankers, lawyers and other advisors in international and cross-border business to better understand what their German lawyers are advising them, as it facilitates communication between different legal cultures. The book is also an excellent guide to the current and future characteristics of the law governing German equity markets.

Der Blaue Ozean als Strategie, vertritt die Ansicht, dass ein brutaler Konkurrenzkampf nur dazu führt, dass sich die Konkurrenten in einem blutrot gefärbten Ozean um rapide schwindende Gewinnmöglichkeiten streiten. Basierend auf der Untersuchung von mehr als 150 strategischen Schachzügen (im Lauf von mehr als 100 Jahren und in mehr als 50 Branchen) vertreten die Autoren die Ansicht, dass nachhaltiger Erfolg nicht auf verschärftem Konkurrenzkampf, sondern auf der Eroberung »Blauer Ozeane« beruht: der Erschließung neuer Märkte mit großem Wachstumspotenzial. Der Blaue Ozean als Strategie präsentiert einen systematischen Ansatz, wie man Konkurrenz irrelevant macht, und legt Prinzipien und Methoden vor, mit der jede Organisation ihre eigenen Blauen Ozeane erobern kann. Diese erweiterte Auflage enthält: - Ein neues Vorwort der Autoren: Hilfe! Mein Ozean färbt sich rot. - Aktualisierungen der in dem Buch behandelten Fälle und Beispiele, indem ihre Geschichte bis in die Gegenwart weitervorfolgt wird. - Zwei neue Kapitel und ein erweitertes drittes Kapitel: Ausrichtung, Erneuerung und Red Ocean Traps.

Gefühle lesen

Wie Sie Emotionen erkennen und richtig interpretieren

Category: Psychology

View: 4909

Pokerface und Unschuldsmiene Befinden wir uns im Würgegriff unserer Gefühle? Oder vermögen wir unsere Emotionen zu kontrollieren? Spüren wir, wenn wir emotional werden, und spüren wir es rechtzeitig? Wie kündigt sich eine emotionale Reaktion in unserem Inneren an? Und sehen andere, was in uns vorgeht? Verrät uns das Gesicht unseres Gegenübers, was er oder sie gerade empfindet? Interpretieren wir Gefühlsausdrücke richtig? Und wie leicht lassen wir uns täuschen? Können wir lernen, unausgesprochene Gefühle bei uns und bei anderen sensibler wahrzunehmen und in angemessener Weise mit dieser Information umzugehen? So viele Fragen – und so wichtig für unser tägliches Miteinander. Der renommierte Psychologe Paul Ekman entfaltet in diesem Buch ein faszinierendes Panorama der Erkenntnisse aus der Emotions- und Gesichterforschung. Er erläutert, wie Gefühle entstehen und wie sie sich in unserer Mimik äußern. Und er zeigt, wie wir dieses Wissen in unseren zwischenmenschlichen Beziehungen praktisch anwenden können. Damit ist sein Buch beides: eine spannende Reise in ein facettenreiches Forschungsfeld und ein Leitfaden für einen bewussteren Umgang mit den eigenen Gefühlen und den Emotionen anderer. Die 2. Auflage enthält ein zusätzliches Kapitel über "Lügen und Emotionen". Niemand in der Welt hat Gesichtsausdrücke so intensiv untersucht wie Paul Ekman. In Gefühle lesen präsentiert er – klar, lebhaft und leicht zugänglich – seine faszinierenden Beobachtungen über die offenen und versteckten Ausdrücke von Gefühlen, denen wir Tag für Tag Hunderte von Malen begegnen, die wir aber so oft falsch verstehen oder gar nicht wahrnehmen. Seit Darwins Der Ausdruck der Gemütsbewegungen bei den Menschen und den Tieren hat es kein derart breit angelegtes und einsichtsreiches Buch mehr zu diesem Thema gegeben. Oliver Sacks Paul Ekman hat mit Gefühle lesen ein wunderbares Buch vorgelegt, das helfen möchte, Emotionen richtig zu erkennen und zu interpretieren. Gehirn & Geist Paul Ekman, Pionier der Mimikforschung, eröffnet mit seinem neuen Buch Gefühle lesen allen die Chance, Gefühle besser zu verstehen. Hamburger Abendblatt Ein herausragendes Beispiel populärwissenschaftlicher Literatur. New Scientist Gefühle lesen wird jeden Leser emotional intelligenter machen.
