Companies and their investors are facing numerous hot-button corporate governance issues in 2018. Dual-class share structures are coming under scrutiny as CEOs look to maintain leadership without owning a majority stake. A shift toward private fundraising has brought with it concerns of less stringent governance requirements and public disclosures. Meanwhile, an increasing number of companies are aiming to control costs and expand access to a wider group of investors by holding digital annual meetings.

In order to understand how these issues will impact companies and their investors in the coming months, Toppan Vintage commissioned Mergermarket to interview leading experts in the field.

Points of discussion include:

  • Will dual-class structures continue as a trend or should we expect a rollback ahead?
  • What are the risks and issues with private fundraising when it comes to corporate governance?
  • What are the most helpful improvements to corporate governance currently being implemented as a result of activist investors?
