The sixth edition of Legal Aspects of Corporate Finance is practice-oriented, containing the actual text of various corporate finance documents, such as debentures, indentures, preferred stock terms, convertible security provisions, and acquisition agreements. The book presents a number of new cases spawned by the 2008 credit crises and the emergence of shareholder and debt market default activists.
Those cases, as well as the ones which have been retained, demonstrate why particular provisions are included in the documents, and the legal effects of omitting such provisions. They also explain how legislatures and administrative agencies have addressed corporate and securities law issues. The sixth edition includes an expanded treatment of third party legal opinions which are often delivered in corporate finance transactions.
A teacher's manual, which includes problems taken from the author's past examinations, will be available to professors.
