Die Anleihegläubigermehrheit

eine institutionenökonomische, rechtsvergleichende und dogmatische Untersuchung

English summary: Bondholders are faced with a collective action problem in respect to amending indenture and covenants as well as monitoring the issuer. The author focuses on how this problem can or should be regulated. His approach is to analyze the problem and possible solutions, apart from the existing legislation, by using the instruments of the new institutional economics. His analysis results in a basis for comparison of the special legislation in Germany, Switzerland, France, Austria, Great Britain and the USA. In conclusion, the author shows how a legal statute which addresses the collective action problems of bondholders can be derived from the German general law of obligations. German description: Das neue Schuldverschreibungsgesetz soll die Ordnungsprobleme der Anleihe beheben. Das aufgeteilte Anleihevolumen erzeugt eine unuberschaubare Zahl einzelner Glaubiger. Diese Anleiheglaubigermehrheit ist mit Kollektivhandlungsproblemen konfrontiert, die es aufzulosen gilt. Roland Schmidtbleicher analysiert diese Probleme mit Mitteln der Neuen Institutionenokonomik und entwickelt den Rahmen einer adaquaten Losung. Er vergleicht das Schuldverschreibungsgesetz funktionell mit dem schweizerischen, franzosischen, osterreichischen, amerikanischen und englischen Recht. Anschliessend zeigt er eine schuldrechtliche Struktur der Anleiheglaubigermehrheit und vergleicht sie mit den Regeln des Schuldverschreibungsgesetzes. Das Zusammenspiel von institutionenokonomischer Theorie, funktioneller Rechtsvergleichung und dogmatischer Analyse ermoglicht so die Diskussion einer stimmigen Normierung des Rechts der Anleiheglaubigermehrheit, die das Schuldverschreibungsgesetz nicht bietet.

Readers will learn the essentials of financial statements and terminology, the stock market, public companies, and more--all with an eye on how this knowledge helps them do their jobs better as communication professionals.

He has mapped out a straightforward process to build a world-class, IT-enabled strategic finance organization." -- Tom Shea President UpStream Software "Laying a solid foundation based on pertinent information is critical for success in today's dynamic marketplace. Achieving success requires companies to be nimble, harnessing data that is essential to decision-making.

Modern economies depend on innovation in services for their future growth. Service innovation increasingly depends on information technology and digitization of information processes. Designing new services is a complex matter, since collaboration with other companies and organizations is necessary. Service innovation is directly related to business models that support these services, i.e. services can only be successful in the long run with a viable business model that creates value for its customers and providers. This book presents a theoretically grounded yet practical approach to designing viable business models for electronic services, including mobile ones, i.e. the STOF model and – based on it – the STOF method. The STOF model provides a ‘holistic’ view on business models with four interrelated perspectives, i.e., Service, Technology, Organization and Finance. It elaborates on critical design issues that ultimately shape the business model and drive its viability.
