Overhaul of Swiss Corporate Governance Regime for Listed Swiss Companies Following Approval of the Minder Initiative

On 3 March 2013 a constitutional amendment was approved by the Swiss voters as proposed by the Minder say-on-pay initiative. By the end of May 2013, the Federal Office of Justice is expected to publish a draft implementing ordinance, which will be enacted on 1 January 2014. The implementing ordinance will overhaul the Swiss corporate governance regime for listed Swiss companies pending the enactment of a revised statute of law.
