Abstract:This report analyses the possibility to outflank disclosure obligations under the German Securities Trading Act as well as the German Takeover Act by using derivative instruments in the context of the attack of Schaeffler KG on Continental AG. Irrespective of a limited knowledge of the complete facts it comes to the conclusion that, under certain conditions, there are good reasons to assume violations of legal obligations that would entitle the Federal Financial Supervisory Authority to fix hefty fines but not to prohibit the offer.
