About The Event

The new Indian Companies Act, 2013 is now a reality with 98 out of the anticipated 470 sections already announced. Many features of the new 2013 Act are significantly different from those in the previous Indian Companies Act.1956.

Knowledge of the Indian Companies Act, 2013 is vital for the staff of Private Equity and Venture Capital funds for several reasons.

A key reason is that, as investors, Private Equity and Venture Capital funds will find certain new features which protect their interests,  or increase the need for greater protections.

As board members of portfolio companies, the staff of Private Equity and Venture Capital funds may also face new liabilities. They need to be aware of the issues to be confronted by their portfolio companies as well as their rights and duties.

Important features of the new Companies Act, 2013 relate to corporate governance, board conduct, independent directors, duties and liabilities of key management personnel, insider trading, new procedures for the conduct of M&A, class action suits, mergers with foreign companies, new audit and reporting requirements, new definitions of key terms including those of listed companies and control, new disclosure requirements and penalties and many more points of direct relevance to Private Equity & Venture Capital funds.

All Private Equity and Venture Capital fund professionals, in addition to their legal advisers, as well as other actors in the private equity, venture capital and corporate space, need to gain a sound knowledge of  the new Companies Act because it will influence their interests and responsibilities in a most fundamental fashion in the years ahead.
