NJ Rev Stat § 14A:10A-2 (2013) What's This?

14A:10A-2. Findings, declarations
The Legislature hereby finds and declares it to be the public policy of this State, the following:

a. Resident domestic corporations, as defined in this act, encompass, represent and affect, through their ongoing business operations, a variety of constituencies, including New Jersey shareholders, employees, customers, suppliers and local communities and their economies whose welfare is vital to the State's interests.

b. In order to promote such welfare, the regulation of the internal affairs of resident domestic corporations as reflected in the laws of this State governing business corporations should allow for the stable, long-term growth of resident domestic corporations.

c. Takeovers of public corporations financed largely through debt to be repaid in the short term by the sale of substantial assets of the target corporation, in other states, have impaired local employment conditions and disrupted local commercial activity. These takeovers prevent shareholders from realizing the full value of their holdings through forced mergers and other coercive devices. The threat of these takeovers also deprives shareholders of value by forcing the adoption of short-term business strategies as well as defensive tactics which may not be in the public interest.

L. 1986, c. 74, s. 2.
