On 1 January 2020, the new law introducing the Code of Companies and Associations came into effect. Certain forms of companies can no longer be established and the mandatory provisions of the new code have entered into force.

CMS invites you to a seminar led by our experts on 18 February.

Programme : 

Your company

  • Are your company's bylaws in line with the Code?
  • The SRL/BV: the company of the future? What are its advantages? Lack of capital?
  • What are the main differences between the SA/NV and the SRL/BV?

Your shareholders

  • New: multiple voting shares, withdrawal or exclusion of shareholders, granting of dividends, general assembly?
  • Do your shareholder agreements need to be amended? 

Your Governance

  • How to limit the liability of directors? Is it effective?
  • How will the "alarm bell" work in an SRL/BV?
  • What's new regarding conflict of interest issues at board level?

Your investment- your exit

  • What is the impact on techniques for maintaining control when investors are brought in? 
  • What solutions allow for an optimal exit?

Your restructuring

  • What's new in the area of company mergers, transformations and wind-ups?

This seminar will be presented in French and Dutch.

The seminar will be followed by a cocktail reception.

We hope to welcome you at this event.
