  • Sarbanes-Oxley Act update
  • A new leading case on Financial Assistance
  • Changes to the AIM rules
  • Second edition of UKLA Newsletter – this article highlights how the UKLA will address certain issues including the requirement to be clear in listing particulars about the risks of investing in securities

  • Other issues include Directors Remuneration, amendments to the Takeover Panel rules and proposed introduction of electronic payment of dividends via CREST.
