Advantages - Take-over bid:
A non-accepting shareholder who applies to the court to set aside the proposed compulsory acquisition of his shares under s.210 will fail unless he can make out a very strong case. Acceptance by holders of 90 per cent or more of the shares indicates that the terms offered are fair. This is so even if the objector contends that he had need of more information in order to reach a decision or that Company A in acquiring control of Company B will obtain special advantages (e.g. elimination of a competitor) which are not reflected in the price offered for his shares. Objection on those grounds only are likely to fail.
