a target's statement given in accordance with section 638 must include,
or be accompanied by, a report by an expert that states whether, in the
expert's opinion, the takeover offers are fair and reasonable and gives the
reasons for forming that opinion.
- Note: Subsections 648A(2) and (3) provide for the independence of the expert
and disclosure of any association between the target and the expert or the
bidder and the expert. A contravention of one of those subsections results in
the target's statement not complying with this subsection.
(2) In determining whether the bidder's voting power in the target is 30% or
more, calculate the bidder's voting power at the time the bidder's statement
is sent to the target.
