Abstract

More often than not discussion about shareholders has been around the idea of shareholder rights. This article looks at the notion of shareholder consent. Although the notions of shareholder rights and consent overlap somewhat, they deal with issues from a different standpoint. I will summarise some of the main areas in which shareholder consent is required and in the process discuss issues such as in what circumstances consent is required from shareholders, the nature of that consent, whether informed consent is required, or indeed possible, and whether another mechanism is preferable to that of shareholder consent. In the process of looking at shareholder consent, comparisons will also be made to the proposal under CLERP 9 which requires that shareholders be 'consulted' on the level of executive salary packages for directors.
