Identifying shareholders and disseminating information after 1 July 2013

What are the implications for listed companies and shareholders?

The new Corporate Governance Act, effective as of 1 July 2013, enables a listed company to identify:

  • who its shareholders are
  • how big their stake is
  • what they hold

Under the new law, shareholders can take the initiative as well and ask the company to start an identification process. A shareholder can also request the company to make information available to the other shareholders.
