Abstract—Electronic meetings may offer a low cost and borderless medium of communication. Hence, shareholders’ rights to participate may be enhanced. Legislatures in various jurisdictions have given electronic meetings a statutory recognition. This paper analyses the effectiveness of electronic corporate meetings from a legal perspective as provided by the legislation especially in Malaysia. Some experiences from other jurisdictions like US and Australia may be drawn for this purpose.
—Virtual/electronic meetings, opportunity to participate, shareholders’ rights, corporate governance.
