Section 146: Traded companies: nomination of persons to enjoy information rights

264.Subsections (1) and (2) provide new rights for members of companies whose shares are traded on regulated markets to nominate those on whose behalf they hold shares to receive information that is sent to members direct from the company and to exercise certain rights.

265.Subsection (3) sets out what is meant by ‘information rights’, namely the right to receive all communications that the company sends to members, the right to require copies of accounts and reports (as in section 431 or 432), and the right to require hard copy versions of documents (section 1145).

266.Subsection (4) refers to section 426, which allows under certain circumstances for summary financial statements rather than full accounts to be sent out as part of the general information. These must also be sent to nominated persons.

267.Subsection (5) provides that the company does not need to respond to a nomination that specifies only certain information rights.
