Analyse the legal framework of the principal capital transactions of the most frequently encountered commercial companies, i.e. the S.A. (public limited company), S.C.A. (partnership limited by shares) and the S.à r.l. (private limited company): capital increase and reduction (with or without issue or redemption and/or cancellation of securities), including within the context of the issue or conversion of convertible securities. Practical cases and accounting entries will be presented at the training session. N.B. tax aspects will not be dealt with.

  • Practical and economic utility;
  • Types of contributions and legal consequences;
  • Contributions with or without issue of securities;
  • Contributions with or without share premium; contributions under par value;
  • Realisation of the contribution: general meetings and authorised capital;
  • Issue and conversion of securities convertible into capital.

Conversion of capital

  • Choice of currencies;
  • Maintaining the minimum capital.

Redemption of shares and capital reductions

  • Practical and economic utility; reimbursement or non-reimbursement to shareholders; redemption at nominal value or at a higher value;
