Equiniti confirmed Wednesday it had facilitated Takeda's £46bn takeover of Shire last week.

The deal, completed on 22 January, marked the 'biggest corporate action in Japanese history,' according to Equiniti.

The transaction was 'one of the most complex cross-border schemes of arrangement ever completed, particularly around the collection of shareholders instructions,' it added.

'We are very pleased to serve Takeda as a new Equiniti client and very much look forward to working with them,' said Gavin Lane, Senior Operations Director at Equiniti.
