Key corporate developments that will affect business in 2019

Please join the Webber Wentzel Corporate team to discuss the following key corporate developments which grabbed headlines in 2018 and are set to shape 2019:

  • JSE developments
    In response to issues encountered by companies in practice as well as high profile company scandals, the JSE focused its efforts on restoring market confidence by proposing a number of reforms due to take effect in 2019. We will hear insights from the CEO of the JSE, Nicky Newton-King, on key developments at the JSE and the proposed regulatory reforms likely to affect listed companies.
  • Companies Act amendments and recent case law
    We will share our comments on the proposed amendments to the Companies Act and also review related case law.
  • M&A market trends
    We will discuss trends and deal points in the international market likely to shape M&A deals in South Africa.
  • Hostile takeovers - lessons learned from ATON's hostile bid for Murray & Roberts
    We will consider the lessons learned on the hostile bid by ATON to acquire Murray & Roberts which may be pertinent to future acquirers and targets.
