Abstract

The article examines the European Commission proposal to amend the shareholder rights directive and the the preparations of an informal trialogue of the Council of the European Union and the European Parliament concerning the provision on related party transactions. Both the international discussion and national concepts are examined. It is argued that shareholders should at least have the power to alter the statute of the company.

Keywords: related party transactions, conflicts of interest, corporate governance, minority shareholder protection, group of companies, fair trade law, shareholder primacy
