Corporate actions of listed companies can range from director election or name change to asset acquisition or disposal, and to merger or restructuring actions. Predicting outcomes is not easy under the recent rise of shareholder activism, and has become more difficult when consent must be obtained from independent shareholders on major transactions, a popular one in past two years being privatisation.
What shall and what can listed companies do during the planning stage and up to general meetings in order to get a much better chance of passing the resolutions?
The Institute has invited seasoned professionals in financial advisory, company secretarial and proxy advisory aspects to give an overview on all the relevant steps, actions, parties, factors, etc and share practical experience by taking privatisation as a case study. Panel discussion on recent unsuccessful privatisations will follow. The aim of this seminar is to provide a holistic understanding not only on what makes a successful privatisation, but also other significant transactions where approvals from independent shareholders are required.
