New Clause 129

Company Law Reform Bill [Lords] – in a Public Bill Committee at 1:45 pm on 20th July 2006.

Alert me about debates like this

Effect of redenomination

‘(1) The redenomination of shares does not affect any rights or obligations of members under the company’s constitution, or any restrictions affecting members under the company’s constitution.

In particular, it does not affect entitlement to dividends (including entitlement to dividends in a particular currency), voting rights or any liability in respect of amounts unpaid on shares.

(2) For this purpose the company’s constitution includes the terms on which any shares of the company are allotted or held.

(3) Subject to subsection (1), references to the old nominal value of the shares in any agreement or statement, or in any deed, instrument or document, shall (unless the context otherwise requires) be read after the resolution takes effect as references to the new nominal value of the shares.’.—[Margaret Hodge.]

Brought up, and added to the Bill.
