Dual Class Share Structures Roundtable
October 20, 2015
11:30 - 2:00
Munk Centre, University of Toronto
1 Devonshire Place 

The Program on Ethics in Law and Business at the Faculty of Law, University of Toronto invites you to attend a roundtable on dual class share structures from 11:30 – 2:00 pm on October 20, 2015 at the Munk Centre. In addition to addressing the advantages and disadvantages of dual class structures, the roundtable will examine governance issues, international trends, minority shareholder rights, the role of corporate versus securities law, and the need for policy reforms, if any. The topic is especially relevant given the number of IPOs recently in which a dual class structure is present (e.g. Cara, Stingray) as well as regulatory attention that is being paid to these structures in other jurisdictions (e.g. France, Hong Kong).

This program provides 1.25 hours of LSUC substantive CPD credits
