Hosted by John Hutchinson, our Equity Capital Markets team discusses the latest issues for company directors to be aware of, including capital raising in a difficult market, listed company acquisitions and executive remuneration.
Executive remuneration and equity plans
John Hutchinson, Deborah Chew and Anthony Bradica discuss the tax and corporate law issues surrounding executive remuneration, particularly equity plans. Although there have been no dramatic tax rule changes in the past year, the Corporations Act has changed, with implications for both listed and unlisted companies.
Listed company acquisitions: issues for directors
John Hutchinson, James Morvell and Sevan Gore discuss the opportunities in a challenging market for listed companies to buy unlisted companies and/or assets. How do acquisitions by a listed company differ from their unlisted competitors? The path to success lies in careful advance planning, including being aware of the regulatory issues, having a clear PR strategy, and knowing where funding will come from.
Raising capital in volatile times
With companies facing economic headwinds, John Hutchinson, Michelle Eastwell and Deborah Chew discuss how to raise capital in a challenging market, including the different types of capital raising they are seeing, the quickest way to raise capital with certainty and issues to be aware of in relation to cleansing notices, trading halts and suspensions.
