Redesignate Shares

This guide explains how to record a redesignation of shares using Kudocs. You must complete the required legal process to redesignate the shares offline, and then use Kudocs to record and implement the changes. 

The class into which the shares are being redesignated must already exist. If it does not, you will first need to create that share class, and then return to the process. 

Shares can only be redesignated to a share class with the same nominal value. If this is not the case, you will need first to subdivide or consolidate the share capital accordingly.

The action is available via:

  • All actions.

This is a Record action only.
