Luxembourg Company Directors: what are their Fiduciary Duties During an Acquisition Process


Les inscriptions sont fermées


The purpose of this webinar is to provide attendees with a refresher on the fiduciary duties that apply to Luxembourg company directors and managers, in particular in the context of an offer for the acquisition of shares in that company, whether addressed to the shareholders directly or indirectly through the board as an intermediary. We will also briefly review certain additional considerations that can arise where the acquisition proposal concerns a company’s assets directly from the company itself.


The webinar will kick off with a short reminder of the scope of the standard duties of care and loyalty, which directors and managers must comply with at all times in carrying out their corporate mandate. 

We will then explore in more detail the board’s part in an acquisition process, in particular its role in protecting minority shareholders and other non-equity stakeholders, the avoidance of conflicts of interest, the endorsement (or not) of a proposed acquisition, board transfer consent clauses, disclosure of confidential information during a due diligence, and other topics.

The webinar will not cover rules that specifically apply to regulated or publicly traded companies.
