The law of 23 March 2007 has amended the Luxembourg company law (law of 10 August 1915).
The major changes of this law are the following:

  • extension of the mergers and divisions regimes (to all Luxembourg; companies, not only companies limited by shares “sociétés anonymes”);
  • mergers and divisions can take place even though the entities acquired or ceasing to exist as a result thereof are subject to bankruptcy proceedings;
  • cross border mergers and divisions;
  • new rules regarding transfers of assets, transfers of branches of activity and transfers of all assets and liabilities.
