Chapter Summary

This chapter reviews the practices of Commonwealth of Independent States (CIS) countries with respect to protecting investors' (both shareholders' and creditors') rights when a company is engaged in acquisitions or disposals of a substantial amount of assets (major, or extraordinary, transactions) and self-dealing and other conflict-of-interest situations (related-party transactions). It examines some of the most common abuses of investors' rights and practical problems in the relevant area in the CIS countries, how these special circumstances are regulated from the perspective of investor protection. Finally, the chapter discusses the regulatory solutions proposed by the Model Legislative Provisions on Investor Protection (MLPIP) to deal with identified problems of investor protection in special circumstances and why these may work for these emerging (transition) economies in the CIS countries.

Keywords: Commonwealth of Independent States (CIS) countries; extraordinary transactions; investor protection; MLPIP; related-party transactions
