The GUBERNA Centre for shareholder Governance, together with iets partners Ageas and Deloitte & Laga, organises a Round Table to debate one of the upcooming new developments in the corporate governance code for listed companies, i.e. Loyalty Voting Rights.
In listed companies it will be possible, through the introduction of the new ompany law, to grant a double voting right to "loyal" shareholders (that is, shareholders holding their shares for at least two years without interruption). This so-called loyalty voting right has a double purpose. In the first place, the favouring of loyal shareholders aims to counter short termism and the promotion of a long-term vision. In the second place, it is intended to prevent controlling shareholders from deciding, for fear of loss of control, not to take the step to a stock exchange listing in circumstances where such a step would be appropriate from an economic point of view, and in particular with a view to financiing the growth of the company.
We kindly invite you to this meeting on 29 January, 2019 (16.30 - 19.00) in Brussels (Ageas, Markiesstraat 1, 1000 Brussels).
Should you have any additional questions, please do not hesitate to contact us.
More details will follow soon.
We look forward to meeting you!
