東京地決平成25年9月17日金判1427号54頁〔セレブリックス事件〕

全部取得条項付種類株式の価格決定の事件ですが,株式買取請求権の公正な価格と同じ論点ということで話を進めます。まず,平成17年改正において,ナカリセバ価格のままにすべきで,公正な価格とすべきではなかったのではないかという論点があります1

いわゆるレギュレーションA+規則の提案について

証券取引委員会が2013年12月18日にレギュレーションA+の規則提案を行うようです。JOBS Actに基づく規則制定の中でも優先度が低そう(実際に使われなそう)なので,意外と言わざるを得ません。

NASDAQにおける報酬委員会の独立性に関する規則改正

NASDAQが報酬委員会の独立性に関して,上場規則を変更するとのことです。

On November 26, 2013, the Nasdaq Stock Market filed a proposal to amend its listing rules implementing Rule 10C-1 of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, governing the independence of compensation committee members. Currently, Nasdaq Listing Rule 5605(d)(2)(A) and IM-5605-6 employ a bright line test for independence that prohibits compensation committee members from accepting directly or indirectly any consulting, advisory or other compensatory fees from the company or any subsidiary subject to certain exceptions.

Based on the potential burden the bright line approach places on companies’ ability to recruit eligible directors, Nasdaq has proposed to replace this rule and its exceptions with a requirement that all compensation received from a company be considered in the independence determination. Separately, Nasdaq has also proposed some minor revisions to the affiliation prong of the compensation committee independence test under Rule 10C-1, which requires that consideration be given in independence determinations to whether a compensation committee member is affiliated with the issuer, a subsidiary of the issuer or an affiliate of a subsidiary of the issuer. All of these changes would align Nasdaq’s approach to compensation committee independence with that employed by the NYSE.
