Game Change: DICA Now Allows Transfer of Shares in Myanmar Company to Foreigners –
Impact on M&A and Finance
Client Briefing
7 March 2017
In a game-changing move, the Directorate of Investment and Company Administration (“DICA”) has for the first time implemented a transfer of shares in a company wholly owned by Myanmar citizens and registered as a Myanmar Company (“MC”) to a foreigner, without incorporating a new legal entity. VDB Loi initiated the solution to this issue with DICA, suggested how to make the process suitable, and worked with the authorities to implement this pioneering remedy.
In this unique breakfast briefing, VDB Loi’s experts will provide you exclusive details on this development, what it means for Myanmar Companies and foreigners, and its significance in Myanmar’s rapidly evolving corporate landscape.

  • What are the new opportunities now open to Myanmar groups of companies?
  • What is the difference with the New Companies Act?
  • Case study: How to proceed? How long does it take?
  • Issuing new shares or transfer of shares from Myanmar nationals to foreign buyers
  • Which activities would have to be stopped when the Myanmar Company is converted to a Foreign Company?
  • Practical tips, convertible loans, effect on financing structures
