The second category of shareholders’ rights delineates the separation between ownership and management. While no longer having the responsibility, or the right, to oversee day-to-day operations of the company, shareholders must have some means of reconciling their differing interests, goals and investment horizons into basic strategic decisions. Here, shareholders’ rights treat with the essentials of shareholder participation in decision-making (procedures for shareholder meetings, election of directors, approval of fundamental corporate changes, etc.) and limit mechanisms (and their consequences) that hinder or undermine shareholder decision-making, such as undisclosed control arrangements, non-transparent corporate-control transactions and management entrenchment.
