Corporate and M&A Law Committee Treasury Shares Guide 2012
The Corporate and M&A Law Committee has prepared a guide to treasury shares with chapters from more than 50 countries. The Treasury Share Guide provides general information on treasury shares, on the legal requirements and restrictions on the acquisitions and sales of treasury shares and finally implications of treasury shares under national takeover law.
The material is intended as a high-level practical guide for practitioners and others who are looking for an introduction to the laws of each relevant jurisdiction relating to treasury shares.
The editors, Christian Herbst and Katharina Oberhofer, thank all the authors who contributed their time and expertise, and welcome additional material for countries not already included. Please contact them at firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com if you would like to contribute.
Each guide indicates its authors, who may be contacted with questions or suggestions in relation to the laws of any country.
These guides are not intended as and must not be considered legal advice for any particular situation, and members are encouraged to consult with local counsel in each jurisdiction before making decisions or providing advice on them.
