I added 'as of 2003, no registration has been published.' after checking the Official Journal of the European Communities online. Please rectify if this is incorrect. -- Kaihsu Tai 17:25, 2003 Dec 27 (UTC)

But dont Scandinavian states have both a single-tier board of directors and co-determination (even directly by unions)? Then whats the point of this:"In states with these provisions, the corporation has two boards, a management board (which handles the day-to-day operation of the company) and the supervisory board (which elects and oversees the management board, and reports back to shareholders and employees). This division is effected in part to avoid direct involvement of employee representatives in day-to-day management. Companies in states without worker involvement provisions tend to have unitary boards of directors instead." It doesnt seem too relevant anyways. Im going to delete this part, someone revert if discussion is first required. -- 14:55, 9 September 2006 (UTC)

"European Companies" today[edit]

The German Wikipedia has a list with the following companies which apparently have converted to SE status:

- Allianz SE

- Fresenius SE

- Conrad Electronic SE

- and from Austria: STRABAG SE

Also the following companies are mentioned to be in the process of converting soon:

- Porsche AG


Surely there must be some others using the SE statute aside the Germans and the Austrians? :)

So what is the 'ownership' status of 'SE' companies? Are they public? And how does the shareholder controls compare to a national legislature such as 'plc' or 'AG'? Perhaps someone can clarify this - both briefly in the lead paragraph, and then in more detail in an appropriate sub-heading. Thanks (talk) 10:57, 3 August 2009 (UTC)

Article on European company[edit]

At the moment, a search for "European company" lands you on this page about European company regulation. We also need a "European company" article that says what a European company is; de.wikipedia has quite a good one (Europäische Gesellschaft) that we could translate, or at least summarize as a starting point.
