Board Matters Quarterly: March 2013


  • Share

We look at the potential areas of focus of shareholders at the forthcoming AGMs with questions or topics the Board should consider, as well as some of the basic rules of AGM preparation.

The AGM season is here again. A well-run AGM reflects positively on governance, builds confidence in the board and contributes to shareholder value. It is equally true that the opposite would apply.

The Minister for Finance, Mr. Tharman Shanmugaratnam, delivered the 2013 Budget for the financial year 1 April 2013 to 31 March 2014 in Parliament on 25 February 2013. We highlight some of the key changes announced in the Budget Statement.

In this issue, we examine:

  • Preparing for AGM
  • Singapore Budget 2013
  • Property market cooling measures
  • Hong Kong Budget 2013-14
  • Regulatory updates
  • Changes to FRS effective in 2013 and available for early adoption in 2013
