One of the most successful titles in the series, Corporations has been the top study guide in this area for nearly fifteen years, helping thousands of students gain a solid grasp of corporate issues. This latest edition covers recent changes in the Model Business Corporation Act, new SEC rules on insider trading, the Sarbanes-Oxley Act, and much more.
In the proven style of the entire Examples & Explanations Series, the text first presents explanations, then poses examples with questions, followed by thoughtful answers.
What makes this book so effective? The author's clear and lucid writing style is accessible to students who do not have a business background. Statutes and cases are examined in context to illustrate the interplay between law and business. Comprehensive coverage includes topics that sometimes receive minimal class coverage, such as public offering of securities and the common law of insider trading.
New material includes:
The race to the bottom thesis with a new treatment of the relationship between deregulation and price wars;
Recent changes in the Model Business Corporation Act covering new director duties, fundamental corporate changes and appraisal rights, and new charts clarifying variances between the old MBCA, the new MBCA, and Delaware statutes;
New examples from current events such as the accounting and executive compensation scandals at Enron and other companies that resulted in a wave of new legislation and rules;
New issues and topics in corporate law including the SEC's latest rules on insider trading, the use of dead-hand poison pills to prevent shareholder control and much more!
