Protection of minority shareholders in listed companies
Summary:
This thesis presents an overview of the legal development in minority shareholders’ protection in Greek listed companies. The minority protection established by Greek law is in line with the European regulations. Minority shareholders in listed companies are protected in two ways. This means that the minority shareholder is firstly as a member of the “affectio societatis” through the traditional corporate law provisions, and secondly, by means of the capital market laws. The model of the investor-shareholder is crucial and distinguishes the kind of protection a minority shareholder of a listed company has. The two main problems a minority shareholder has to encounter is the lack of information and the difficulties controlling the administrative bodies due to the gap between the board of directors and the shareholders. Transparency, publicity and the provisions of the protective mechanisms of the minority against a takeover bid are basic instruments in the hands of minority for its protection.
The first chapter of the thesis refers to the protection provided to the minority shareholder by means of common company law. The second and specific part of the work is followed by an analysis of the individual provisions introducing mechanisms for the protection of minority shareholders by means of capital market law, as reflected in the individual pieces of legislation.
