Institutional libraries; law universities; ICSI, ICAI; regulatory agencies and institutions concerned with the capital markets; and companies intending to access the primary market. Capital markets lawyers/firms; securities market intermediaries; company secretaries; research scholars and students pursuing professional courses such as LL.B., M.B.A., M.F.C., M.B.E. and M.I.B. The book is a comprehensive exposition of the law and regulation of public offering of corporate securities. It puts together the law and regulation of public offering of corporate securities at one place, and studies it in a singular and coherent fashion, with an emphasis on the concepts and principles that are its foundations and building blocks. Moreover, it is written in a linear fashion, and not as a commentary of the statutory provisions, rules and regulations governing public offering of corporate securities. The book has a starting point, and each subsequent topic, section and chapter logically builds on the earlier analysis, leading to a coherent study of the law and regulation of public offering of corporate securities. However, care has been taken to write these topics, sections and chapters in a manner that these can also be read independently by someone who may wish to refer to a select issue. This volume examines and explains (i) the concept of public offering of securities; (ii) the legal setting in which public offering of securities is undertaken and the mechanics of such transactions; (iii) potential liability of different parties such as issuer company, its promoters and directors, and securities market intermediaries involved in public offering of securities; and (iv) remedies that are available to investors.
