Ladies and Gentlemen,

On behalf of the Polish Association of Listed Companies (SEG), I would like to invite you to the 7th SEG Congress of Listed Companies Lawyers. During the event, we will again hold a mock Annual General Meeting of Zwykła Spółka SA (Ordinary Company PLC). We will also cover issues that are relevant for legal departments of listed companies. The Congress will be held at February 9-10, 2016 in Warszawianka Hotel Congression Centre in Jachranka.

For the first day of the Congress, we have planned five plenary sessions – the most important legislative changes (the effects of implemented and planned regulations, mitigation of negative impacts, support from SEG to membership companies), the latest MAR regulations (developed and planned implementing acts, schedule of further legislative works, necessary actions of companies), the new DPSN (Best Practices for WSE Listed Companies) implementation (the most important changes, reporting on (not) applying DPSN, information coverage in the Annual Report and related liability), OSR-1 (General Reporting Standard) as a way to minimise risk (OSR as environmental standards, rules of creating ISR-1 (Individual Reporting Standard), possible ways of implementation at a company level) and a mock AGM. During the mock AGM, we will mainly focus on the latest problems related to AGMs which listed companies will face in 2016. After that part, all participants are invited to join the Mardi Gras Evening with a quiz, dinner and music party.

For the second day of the Congress, we have planned two rounds of topical workshops on legal matters, as we do every year. After lunch, we will hold a discussion on the OSR-2 project. During the debate, we will discuss the results of the current consultations, the scope of OSR-2 and investors’ most important expectations. There are, of course, quite many topics to be discussed but not all could be included in the Congress Agenda. However, the participants will be given an opportunity for further discussions after the workshops and, in a less formal way, over the dinner. I would like to warmly invite you to participate in this event which does not only present a high substantive level but is also crucial for the integration of the capital market environment in Poland.

During the Congress, we will cover the following topics: the effects of implemented and planned regulations, mitigation of negative impacts, support from SEG to membership companies, developed and planned implementing acts, schedule of further legislative works, necessary actions of companies, the most important changes, reporting on (not) applying DPSN (Best Practices for WSE Listed Companies), information coverage in the Annual Report and related liability, OSR (General Reporting Standard) as environmental standards, rules of creating ISR-1 (Individual Reporting Standard), possible ways of implementation at a company level, presentation of the results of the current consultations, the scope of OSR-2 and investors’ most important expectations.
