Everything you need to manage your corporate actions

Companies often face many types of corporate actions during a year, for example General Meeting, cash dividend and rights issues etc. Below is a brief guide to help you to obtain an overview of our services.

Corporate actions and issuer agents

Euroclear Sweden offer services regarding corporate actions affecting the financial instruments record kept in our systems, from rights issues, stock split and bonus issues to tender offers and squeeze-out of minority shareholders.

The most common corporate action in our system is private placement. When your company has made up with the investors about the issuance of new shares, the share capital needs to be increased and registered with the Swedish Companies Registration Office. In connection with this you need to contact an issuer agent that will help you further with allocation of shares to the investors’ securities accounts.

Generally, the use of an issuer agent is mandatory regarding corporate actions where the shareholder has one or more choice/s, e.g.  if subscription rights are to be exercised for subscription of shares in a rights issue or not. The issuer agent records the choice of the shareholders on the relevant securities accounts. Otherwise you can contact us.
