A Cool Subject - ENT515

by Ng Lee Peng

As an investor in public-listed shares, I often received notices on compulsory takeover. Sometimes, the deal went through and I received cheques or shares of the new companies. Other times, the acquiring company did not manage to buy over and the status remained. Wonder how it was done? Why the deal did not get through? At what price? Thus, I chose ENT515 as the elective course. During the class, I learnt about the steps in M&A, different ways of takeover tactics, the defenses to prevent a takeover, valuation of the target company. Our teacher, Pamela, shared many stories on her vast experiences in this field and other related fields e.g. different ways of getting your company to be listed in SGX. These have given the local “touch” to the subject. Discussions on case studies have also deepened our understanding of the theories in the book. In addition to knowledge, active participations in the class had added fun and laughter.
