Many entities change their name and a large number of companies have had several changes of name. Generally the entity remains the same, it has just changed its name. Often the change of name is the result of business failure which leads to external administration and a capital restructuring or at least a change of activities. But it is still the same entity with pre-existing shareholders retaining an interest, albeit greatly diluted.
deListed pulls all names for one company together so that shareholders can see the history of a company and its current status, all in one table.
How does a company change its name?
To change its name a company must convene a meeting of members and pass a special resolution. At least 28 days notice must be given of a meeting of a listed company's members and the special resolution must be passed by at least 75% of the votes cast by members entitled to vote on the resolution.
The change of name takes effect when the Australian Securities and Investments Commission changes the details of the company's registration. We process a change of name only when ASX notifies the market of the change. Often ASX waits to receive all necessary documentation from the company before changing the name and the timing of the name change may also be affected by whether the company is suspended, undergoing a restructuring or seeking re-listing.
