Australia: [Event] Friends of Madgwicks - The risks when companies lend a helping hand
Last Updated: 31 August 2015

Madgwicks Lawyers is pleased to invite you to join us for our upcoming Friends of Madgwicks seminar on financial assistance and related party transactions.

There are a range of legal issues associated with companies assisting shareholders or related parties with certain transactions. A worst case scenario for those who get it wrong includes an ASIC investigation and prosecution for breach of the Corporations Act 2001 (Cth).

In this session, Special Counsel, Caroline Ord, will discuss what you need to know to effectively structure your share sale and other transactions, including:

Financial Assistance:

  • what is "financial assistance"?
  • exceptions, including the ASIC "white wash" procedure; and
  • director duty considerations

Related Party Transactions ("Chapter 2E"):

  • what is a "related party transaction" and what entities does it apply to?
  • the "arm's length" exemption and application of ASIC Regulatory Guide 76.

We hope you can join us.
