The new 120-day period will provide boards with more time to "just say slow" and evaluate a hostile bid, seek value-enhancing alternatives or convince shareholders to stay the course and reject the bid. As a result, boards will wield more negotiating leverage which will likely encourage a bidder's engagement with the target.
