Japanese Annual Meetings
The ISS blog just posted a discussion about changes to Japan's company law. Companies in Japan have been concentrating shareholder meetings on just a few days each year and sending meeting notices just a couple of weeks in advance of the meeting.
New changes to the company law will make practices in Japan more consistent with the practices in other countries, although Japanese companies will still be able to wait until just two weeks before the annual meeting to send out the notice.
