Inhoud

The GUBERNA Centre for Shareholder Governance, together with its partners Ageas and Deloitte & Laga, organises a Round Table to debate one of the upcoming new developments in the corporate governance code for listed companies, i.e. the Relationship Agreement between a significant/ controlling shareholder and the specific listed company.

The aim is not only to discuss the what and the why, but certainly also to focus on the challenges of combining the advantages of stable shareholders and their important steering and monitoring role with the need for independent and professional decision-making in the long-term interest of the (listed) company. By giving minority shareholders a greater guarantee on independent decision-making, they may find such agreements a token of good governance, willing to limit the traditional discount they charge for investing in controlled companies. This might be all the more relevant in an environment with double/multiple voting rights. Moreover, such agreements can also cement the building blocks for anchoring the independent governance of listed companies.

We are proud to combine the outcome of expert meetings and research on relationship agreements within GUBERNA with the international experience gained by ABN-AMRO (by Diederik LamanTrip), the point of view of proxy advisors as well as the governmental policies to facilitate growth funding in Belgium (by Tom Franck).

We kindly invite you to this meeting on December 11, 2018 (12.00 - 14.30) in Zaventem (Offices Deloitte, Boardroom, Gateway Building, National Airport 1 J, 1930 Zaventem). You can find additional information on directions and parking facilities here.

Should you have any additional questions, please do not hesitate to contact us.

We look forward to meeting you!
