UK: The UK Listing Review - recommendations published

The UK Listing Review, chaired by Lord Hill, published its recommendations today: see here (pdf). As has been widely predicted, the Review is recommending that premium listed companies should be permitted dual class share structures (subject to certain conditions); that HM Treasury should conduct a fundamental review of the prospective regime, including the liability rules relating to forward-looking information; and free float requirements should be reviewed, lowering the minimum absolute requirement to 15%.
