Minutes of board meetings

Clients are reminded of the legal requirements relating to board meetings as stipulated in Art. 73 (6), (7) and (8) of the Companies Act, 71, 2008.

The Act requires a company to keep minutes of meetings of the board and of any of the board’s committees, and that a majority of the directors must be present before a vote may be called at a meeting of the directors. Each resolution taken by the board and also any statement made by a board member must be recorded in the minutes. A board resolution takes effect on the date that the resolution is made unless another date of implementation is recorded in the resolution. Attention is drawn in particular to the requirement that resolutions must be dated and numbered sequentially.

Providing that a company’s Memorandum of Incorporation allows therefor, a board meeting may also be held by means of electronic communication, or one or more directors may participate in a meeting by means of electronic communication. This is conditional on the electronic communication facility enabling all participants in the meeting to communicate with each other without an intermediary.

Minutes of a meeting, or a resolution, signed by the chair of the board meeting or by the chair of the next meeting is evidence of the proceedings of that meeting or adoption of the particular resolution.
