Companies Act 2006

Section 624: Effect of redenomination

913.This section makes it clear that a redenomination of a company’s share capital (or any class of it) does not affect any rights or obligations that the members may have under the company’s constitution or any restrictions affecting members under the company’s constitution. In particular, it does not affect entitlement to dividends, voting rights or any liability in respect of amounts unpaid on shares. If, for example, a dividend of 20p was declared on a £1 share prior to a redenomination of that share, and that £1 share is subsequently converted into a $1.5 share, the member who now owns a $1.5 share in the company will still be entitled to a 20p dividend (albeit that the company and the member in question may agree that the 20p dividend can be paid in cents – or indeed in some other currency). Similarly, where a company has issued partly paid shares, the member’s liability to the company will remain in the currency in which the share was originally denominated.
