Transition Period

Zdeněk Husták, of counsel BBH published an article entitled "Transition period" in magazine IFLR (April 2008).

"Financial Collaterals - Hopefully Better This Time"

This article briefly describes the changes in the Commercial Code regarding the modifications made to financial collateral arrangements. It points in particular at the complications of the former regulation of outright transfer collateral arrangements, the distinction of general means of securing obligations and financial collateral arrangements as well as the narrow definition of entitled persons. The article further mentions the persisting complications existing in the Czech Securities Center practice, which in fact inhibits the securing of financial collateral arrangements where book-entry securities serve as collateral

"Closer to the Real Meaning of Financial Collaterals"

The original Czech transposition of the model for the European regulation of financial collateral arrangements directive no. 2002/47/ES was very troublesome. The article focuses on the awaited changes brought by the necessary amendment of the original Czech regulation of financial collateral arrangements in the Czech Commercial Code. The Article deals on one side with the amendment's innovations improving the troublesome original regulation and, on the other side, it describes the persisting problems connected with the Czech regulation of financial collateral arrangements. The regulations resolved by the amendment were in particular the outright transfer of collateral and the precision of several legal definitions used in collateral arrangements. Also, the range of entitled persons in collateral arrangements was widened. Nevertheless, the problems connected with securing financial collateral arrangements with book-entry securities serving as collateral still persists.
