Os governos responsáveis pela Antártida se reunirão em outubro de 2018 para discutir seu futuro. Mas desde já precisamos de uma forte pressão global para que seus representantes saibam que pessoas em todo o mundo querem a proteção do oceano antártico. Assine a petição e faça parte deste movimento!
Assine a petição e nos ajude a preservar a região da pesca industrial, caça às baleias e da exploração do petróleo.

REMOTE VOTING AT BRAZILIAN PUBLIC COMPANIES: WHAT HAS CHANGED AND WHAT DO INVESTORS NEED TO KNOW?
The remote voting system was created to facilitate access by all shareholders to shareholders’ meetings. Initially, it is mandatory only to annual shareholder meetings and meetings to elect company Directors and Audit Committee Members, but its scope is expected to broaden over time. After a partial roll-out in 2017, remote voting is now required for the almost 400 publicly traded companies who are registered as Category “A” within the CVM. Shareholders now have the right to vote without having to physically attend the meetings. Also, shareholding thresholds for including proposals to be voted at meetings have been significantly lowered, facilitating shareholder activism. This begins a new era in the evolution of corporate governance and active participation by minority (including foreign) shareholders in Brazil.
There is still some confusion among investors regarding the procedures, timetables and filing of remote voting forms. The new system also raises the question of whether comparable rights exist for ADR holders. Please join us for an informative discussion with leading practitioners on how the new rules improve corporate governance in Brazil and ensure the voting rights of all shareholders, and how shareholders may take full advantage of these new regulations.
