We live in a world of fast changing legislation. During the past five years, executives have had to familiarise themselves, inter alia, with the Companies Act no. 71 of 2008, the revised King Code and Report on Governance for South Africa, the Financial Markets Act no. 19 of 2012(“FMA”) and on-going amendments to the JSE Limited (“JSE”) Listings Requirements, the most recent of which came into effect on 30 September 2014.
This publication is intended to aid executives of listed entities with aspects of the JSE Listings Requirements and the FMA that are particularly relevant to directors and company secretaries.
Note: Whilst every effort has been made to ensure this quick reference guide is accurate, it is only a summary of key JSE Listings Requirements and applicable legislation. Readers are encouraged to consult with their sponsor, and/or professional advisor before taking action.
