Dissertation: Directing of share - assessment of the permissibility of derogation to the ...
Company’s shareholder has a certain right to his proportion.
– For example shareholder has a pre-emptive right in a share issue. This right is not absolute, but company may make a derogation of it. The derogation can be made if there is a weighty financial reason for the company to do so, explains Raitio.
The weighty financial reason may occur when company has a financial, partnership or incentive function for directing of share. Because directing of share may have strong influence on shareholder´s position in company that has to be taken in account when evaluating conditions of the directing.
– The research creates tools to evaluate the permissibility of directing of share, Raitio tells.
