1.1 Cash Flow, Risk, Agency, Information, Investments The first volume dealt with the management of: cash flow (and the exchange of goods and services); risk; agency relationships; and information. The firm m- ages these aspects by legal tools and practices in the context of all commercial transactions. The second volume discussed investments. As voluntary contracts belong to the most important legal tools available to the firm, the second volume provided an - troduction to the general legal aspects of generic investment contracts and p- ment obligations. This volume discusses funding transactions, exit, and a particular category of decisions raising existential questions (business acquisitions). Transactions which can be regarded as funding transactions from the perspective of a firm raising the funding can be regarded as investment transactions from the perspective of an - vestor that provides the funding. Although the perspective chosen in this volume is that of a firm raising funding, this volume will simultaneously provide infor- tion about the legal aspects of many investment transactions. 1.2 Funding, Exit, Acquisitions Funding transactions are obviously an important way to manage cash flow. All - vestments will have to be funded in some way or another. The firm’s funding mix will also influence risk in many ways. Funding. The most important way to raise funding is through retained profits and by using existing assets more efficiently. The firm can also borrow money from a bank, or issue debt, equity, or mezzanine securities to a small group of - vestors.

German civil law political theory is not in high demand these days. However, political theory is important for establishing an overall picture of German civil law and portraying an image of German civil law to Europe and beyond. This is especially true in times when ideas are widely circulated and the circulation itself can be useful for influencing transnational legal realities. The collected essays on German civil law instructors presented in this work aim to contribute to just such a political theory. This two volume edition is based on the lecture series 20th Century German Civil Law Instructors Described by their Students that was held at the Humboldt-Universitat Berlin, the Europa-Universitat Viadrina at Frankfurt (Oder), and the Ruhr-Universitat Bochum.

This new book offers a substantial framework for examining the competence or powers of the EC in the field of company law, and the requirements for the lawful exercise of these powers (the principle of subsidiarity and the observance of Article 43 EC in particular). In order to provide a clear understanding of the practical relevance of this framework, the author tests the provisions of specific EC company law instruments for compatibility with the EC Treaty. Although the substantial body of EC company law that has been built up over the years is covered, the focus is on EC company law instruments which have been adopted in implementation of the 2003 Action Plan. The book includes a survey of the various company law instruments (both pre-and post-Action Plan) which together make up EC company law, and discusses the objectives of EC company law policy. --

Cet ouvrage a été réalisé à l'initiative de l'Association du bicentenaire du Code de commerce suite au colloque organisé en Sorbonne les 1er et 2 février 2007 et à ceux en régions durant toute l'année 2007. Il est le fruit d'un travail de collaboration entre les praticiens et les théoriciens. Les intervenants ont exposé leur point de vue sur la codification commerciale. La partie historique, à travers plusieurs exemples précis, nous éclaire sur l'évolution du droit du commerce au droit économique. L'usage de la technique de codification en droit des affaires, sous toutes les latitudes et dans les systèmes de droit romano-germaniques et anglo-saxons est passé au crible de l'analyse. Au plan du droit substantiel, les rapports entre le Code de commerce et les sociétés commerciales, le droit des entreprises en difficulté, et le droit financier, ont été traités par les plus Hautes autorités juridiques et judiciaires. Est aussi analysé le rôle des juridictions spécialisées, ainsi que celui des modes alternatifs de résolution des conflits. Par des exemples précis issus à la fois du droit national et des expériences internationales, cet ouvrage auquel ont collaboré des personnalités des mondes politique, judiciaire et universitaire, tente d'apporter un éclairage à la fois historique et contemporain et permet de mieux appréhender le lien entre les entreprises et la justice.

At the European-level, the SPE serves as a supplement to the European Limited Liability Company (SE), which proved to be too difficult for small and medium-sized companies for various reasons. The SPE will be introduced on the basis of a European regulation, the content of which has been largely agreed to by the member states.

The European Company ('SE') is a legal entity offering a European perspective for businesses. Its purpose is to allow businesses that wish to extend their activities beyond their home Member State to operate throughout the EU on the basis of one set of rules and a unified management system. The book explains how to set up and organise a European Company, as well as setting out the text of the EC instruments (a Regulation and a Directive) serving as its legal basis, and a list of national implementing laws. This second volume reports on the countries which have legislated during 2005 and 2006. Divided into two sections, it first offers critical review of the usefulness of, and the opportunities presented by, this new vehicle; analyses the Regulation and the Directive; and examines the tax aspects of the SE. The second part reports on each of the Member States.

The role that payments play within the general framework of financial services in the EC is indispensable for the realization of a true single European market including, inter alia, the conditions of cross-border purchasing, the legal framework of consumer protection, and the technical standards against fraud in payment systems. The Commission's New Legal Framework for payment services in the internal market - as evidenced by the EC Payment Services Directive (PSD) - represents an important step towards the completion of an initiative for a Single Euro Payments Area and, more broadly, EU-wide.

Die europäischen Regelungen der MiFID II sowie der MiFIR und der EMIR stellen die Finanzindustrie vor große Herausforderungen. Mit diesen neuen Normen sollen die Transparenz in den Märkten sowie die Effizienz und Integrität der Finanzmärkte erhöht und neue, auch technische Entwicklungen, erfasst werden. Dies wirkt sich grundlegend auf die Produktgestaltung und den Vertrieb der Institute im Besonderen sowie auf die Marktstruktur im Allgemeinen aus. Damit ergeben sich auch Folgen für die geschäftspolitische Positionierung der einzelnen Marktteilnehmer. Das Buch beschreibt die rechtlichen Grundlagen der MiFID II sowohl auf europäischer als auch auf nationaler Ebene. Darauf aufbauend werden die Auswirkungen der Richtlinie auf den Wertpapierhandel und auf Handelsplätze sowie auf die Anlageberatung und für den Anlegerschutz aus Sicht der Institute thematisiert. Zudem werden die Folgen der MiFID II im Zusammenhang mit der Product Governance auf die Kunden- und Produktstruktur analysiert sowie die Wertpapier-Compliance für die Marktteilnehmer beschrieben. Die Autoren stammen aus Finanzinstituten, aus Rechtsanwaltskanzleien sowie der Aufsicht. Sie beschreiben sowohl den Stand der Umsetzung als auch weiterführende Perspektiven für die praktische Implementierung der MiFID II. Das Buch bietet damit einen lösungsorientierten Ein- und Überblick über zentrale Themen sowie einen Ausblick auf die weitere Entwicklung.
