Dealreporter Asia: AGL Energy's offer for Vocus, Healius' investing in Japan and Kuyushu Railway Co's AGM

Podcast Public M&A Asia-Pacific

In this weekly edition of Dealreporter Asia Pacific’s podcast, Anette Jönsson and Ed Vinales discuss key deals and developments relevant to Asia event-driven investors, including AGL Energy’s [ASX:AGL] new indicative offer for Australian telecom company Vocus [ASX:VOC], private equity interest in Australian healthcare provider Healius [ASX:ALS] and corporate governance-related investing in Japan. In connection with the latter we highlight the upcoming AGM for Kyushu Railway Co [TYO:9142] that will feature a number of proposals from an activist investor.

We also touch on the possible implications for the Chinese ADR delist/relist trend of US Senator Marco Rubio’s recent move to introduce a bill that proposes to delist US-listed Chinese companies that don’t open their audit books to US regulators, and discuss why the bill may have legs and could become legislation.
