Jan Dědič’s Interview for Hospodářské noviny05/05/14 / News

Professor Jan Dědič, a KŠB partner and expert lawyer involved in the re-enactment of Czech private law, explains how he feels about a number issues introduced by the new Corporations Act.

The interview focuses on various classes of shares attaching various voting rights or various dividend rights. Professor Dědič welcomes the wider diversity since he believes that “investors will bear greater responsibility as a result.”  He also says that “the new classes of shares will be taken advantage of in cases where new companies are established, new shares issued or where a strategic investor enters a company.

The shares discussed in the interview included shares with a greater amount of voting rights, fixed-profit shares and shares with a so-called subordinate share in the market. The entire interview (in Czech) is available here.
