Hi All

It is 2011 and Corporate India is still
awaiting passing of the Companies Bill, 2009 !!!!!!

A few changes seem to be trickling in thanks to a
deluge of Circulars and Notifications issued by MCA to
promote e – filing, e – payment, delegation of
powers etc. It even holds promise to incorporate
Companies the Singapore way – one day approval.

RBI’s moves to amend FDI Policy relating to pricing of
convertibles is a step in the right direction. The
country is slowly but surely on the e – highway.

Cos Get Price Leeway for Convertibles

 

RBI
has agreed to amend Foreign Direct Investment (FDI) policy which
will give companies limited flexibility in pricing of convertible
instruments to raise funds overseas. This is set to change the
current policy which requires that the price at which convertible
instrument is to be traded for equity shares should be locked at the
time of issue. This denies the issuer the benefit of getting
better conversion terms if the business does well in future.
