The Swedish Takeover Code was first published in the 1970s, with the UK City Code serving as a model. However, the 2011 overhaul of the City Code implemented changes in the UK which brought the City Code closer to the Swedish approach, particularly in regards to procedures surrounding the announcement of offers and possible offers.

Available for the first time in English, this book is the leading commentary on the Swedish Takeover Code. Written by members of the Swedish Takeover Panel, who have been directly involved in the recent overhauls of the code, it is a vital reference for any companies, lawyers, bankers, financial regulators or policy makers participating in mergers and acquisitions involving Swedish stakeholders.
