As earlier posted, TheMalaysianLawyer.com is partnering up with Legal Logic Asia for this upcoming Companies Act 2016 talk. It will be on 4 April 2017 at Pullman Hotel Bangsar. Click on the image below for the registration form.
Set out below is a preview of some of the topics that will be covered at the talk. I highlight below 6 common areas I come across frequently in practice.
#1 Constitution: Opting in or opting out of certain default provisions of the Companies Act 2016.
#2 Valid or invalid execution of documents: Impact of section 66 of the Companies Act 2016.
#3 Possible pitfalls for directors: In particular, dividends and the solvency statement.
#4 Directors’ fees and benefits payable: This is also in light of the potential changes under the Bursa Listing Requirements.
#5 Transitional issue on the signing of the financial statements.
#6 The breadth of the new indemnity and insurance provisions.
