Still Waiting for Bill on Acquisitions to be Passed

Ljubljana, 2 March - TOPIC/WEEK

This situation is mostly due to a bill on takeovers that has not been passed yet and is to be discussed by the National Assembly. The bill is to provide a systemic legal framework for takeovers, including domestic and foreign legal as well as natural persons.

Shares to fall under the bill are usually transferrable on the stock exchange, while non-transferable shares are not to be regulated by it.
