Corporate governance

National corporate governance related initiatives during the COVID-19 crisis




28/05/2020 - The COVID-19 outbreak and related emergency measures implemented to tackle the health crisis have made it difficult for many companies to meet some of their legal and regulatory requirements, such as the organisation of shareholders meetings and the filing of audited financial reports. As a result of the decline in business activity, many otherwise sound companies are also facing acute liquidity problems that might eventually become solvency problems. In light of these constraints, many jurisdictions have taken steps to adjust certain regulatory requirements.

This note provides an overview of some corporate governance and capital markets-related measures that 37 jurisdictions have taken in response to the economic crisis caused by the COVID-19 outbreak.
