Companies Act 2013 – Impact on Private Equity and Venture Capital Funds


The recently enacted Companies Act, 2013 (the New Act) is a landmark piece of legislation
and likely to have far reaching consequences on all companies incorporated in India. The
erstwhile Companies Act, 1956 was in existence for well over fifty years and was lately seeming
quite ineffective at handling present day challenges of a growing industry and the complexities associated with the growing stakeholders’ interest.

The New Act promises to substantively raise the bar on governance and in comprehensive
form purports to deal with some very relevant themes. On the flip side, it appears to be quite
pervasive and thrusts greater responsibility and obligation on the Board of Directors and
the Management in Indian companies.

Amity Innovation incubator, Amity Campus, Noida.Companies Act 2013 is Organizing a special session on Thursday, 12th December 2013 from 3.00 – 6.00 pm. Impact on Private Equity and Venture Capital Funds and their portfolio companies’ through the following six themes:
