Dirk A. Verse examines the principle of equal treatment of shareholders in the Second EC Company Law Directive, the Transparency Directive, and domestic German company law.
According to the principle of equal treatment of shareholders, each shareholder is to be treated the same as the other shareholders, e.g. in the distribution of profits, in the subscription of new shares or in the right to obtain information. For a long time now, this has been one of the basic principles of German corporate law and, since its codification in Article 42 of the EC Company Law Directive, also of European corporate law. Nevertheless, it has seldom been subjected to closer scrutiny in German legal writing in the past decades. In this work, Dirk A. Verse has succeeded in concretizing the content and the legal consequences of the equal treatment requirement. In order to do so, he makes use of the experiences of other European legal systems.
