In today's competitive business environment, many
organisations encounter different forms of Corporate
Restructuring - in terms of Joint-Ventures, Mergers &
Takeovers and Floatation of Subsidiaries. There are
various reasons for restructuring a corporate operation.
However, the main reason for any restructuring is still
to strive for better corporate performance.

As corporate leaders, there are many issues that need
to be dealt with when tasked with the responsibility of
corporate restructuring. They need to consider how to
rationalise shareholdings in the case of a joint-venture,
how to reduce transaction costs in the case of a takeover,
how to meet the listing requirements of their subsidiaries,
and most significantly, dealing with the tax issues
involved in restructuring. Hence every company director,
CEO, manager, administrator, accountant, lawyer, banker,
company secretary and businessman should be aware of the
underlying issues of Corporate Restructuring and the Tax
Implications associated with such changes.

This one-day seminar will highlight the advantages and
pitfalls of the various forms of corporate restructuring
