Assignment Help:

Takeover, Inc. is a Delaware corporation whose only stated purpose is to acquire companies.  It has virtually no assets and no employees other than the original founders who contributed a total of $50,000.   The founders are well known in the investment community and were formerly affiliated with a very successful investment firm called the Carlyng "Make Money" Group.  Takeover registers and qualifies as a blank check company with the SEC and raises $310 million under a Section 5 IPO.  After commissions and underwriting fees, it is left with $300 million.  It trades at about $10/share, about $2 above the offering price.  The founders allocate $50 million to operation of Takeover, e.g., for salaries, office space, travel expenses, research, consultants, attorneys, etc, in their search for a takeover target.  Six months after completing the IPO, Takeover seeks to acquire Target LLC, a privately owned software company that makes "near field programs" used in Android, valued at about $250 million.  Seventeen months after the IPO, Takeover and Target reach an agreement for selling the company.

  4. Assume that 3 million shares opt out of Takeover; explain Takeover's obligation to those shareholders.
