Implementation of the new Shareholder Rights Directive in Denmark

The new EU Shareholder Rights Directive is about to be implemented in Danish law. The new bill has just been introduced in its final form and is now only awaiting political discussions, and we expect that the bill will be adopted in final form reflecting the current content of the bill.

The new rules will apply to companies with voting shares listed for trade on Nasdaq Copenhagen A/S.

The bill will introduce new rules regarding (i) listed companies’ right to obtain identification information of shareholders, (ii) remuneration of the management and (iii) transactions between a company and its related parties.
