Welcome to the only roundtable podcast in compliance.
This week’s podcast looks at the possible takeover of Activision Blizzard by Microsoft and the compliance considerations. Jonathan Armstrong looks at a number of compliance essentials when planning a takeover including:
- The need to do a proper compliance gap analysis. Conventional deal due diligence is often not sufficient
- The need to look at anti-trust/competition law concerns. This will need to take into account UK competition law regulation too after Brexit.
- The need to look at integration or divesting of some of the acquired assets. This will include important data protection law considerations.
- The need for a regulatory engagement plan
