ACSI call to tighten deal standards
ASX listing rules say shareholder approval is needed if a company equity is increased by more than 15 per cent through a share issue. But this does not apply to takeovers, even if, as in Roc case, equity on issue is being more than doubled to make the purchase.

It seems bizarre. Glass Lewis said shareholders should be able to vote on these deals. exemption is at odds with what we consider to be a tenant of standard corporate governance practices, namely the right of shareholders to have a say in matters that will significantly dilute their ownership interests or otherwise transform the nature of the entity in which they are owners, CGI Glass Lewis analyst Mark Grothe said in a report on the Roc Horizon deal.

ACSI chief Gordon Hagart said the listing rules were almost unique to Australia and meant investors could not be certain they would get a vote if a company they held struck a friendly deal to be taken over.
The powerful Australian Council of Superannuation Investors says stockmarket rules that let companies be taken over without shareholder approval are a risk to market integrity and should be changed.
As has happened in the deal, this means takeovers can be structured so that a smaller company technically takes over a larger one without shareholders of the smaller company having a say.
Governance advisers have backed ACSI call.
