Electronic communications: How have companies dealt with the changes?
Resource type: Practice Note
Law stated as at 05-Dec-2007
An analysis of how a selection of listed companies with financial years ending between 27 January 2007 and 31 March 2007 (19 companies), and with financial years ending on 31 December 2006 (22 companies) have dealt with the changes made to the electronic communications regime by the Companies Act 2006 and the Disclosure and Transparency Rules in their notices of AGM.
No standard approach has emerged as to whether a shareholders' resolution or a resolution to amend the articles is the preferred route, although there has been more of a trend towards amending the articles (rather than passing an authorising resolution) for those companies with financial years ending between 27 January 2007 and 31 March 2007.
