Cross-border conversions, mergers and divisions in the European Union: a paper on the 2018 Commission’s proposal


In April 2018  the European Commission presented a proposal for a directive amending Directive 2017/1132 relating to certain aspects of company law as regards cross-border conversions, mergers and divisions (COM(2018) 241 final).

In July 2018 a group of professors of the Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona (Autonomous University of Barcelona) drew up a document to comment on some aspects of the proposal.

The paper was presented at a public hearing organised by the European Economic and Social Committee (EESC) on 10 September 2018, in Thessaloniki (Greece), in the context of the discussion within the EESC leading to the adoption of an opinion on the said proposal.

The paper, in English, can be found here.
