SPAC - Special Purpose Acquisition Company
Rosenthaler, Jan ; Pelikán, Robert (advisor) ; Flídr, Jan (referee)
SPAC - Special Purpose Acquisition Company Abstract Special Purpose Acqusition Company (SPAC) is an alternative method of stock exchange entry which is used primarily in the USA but has also appeared in the Czech Republic. It is a company established for the sole purpose of listing on the stock exchange and then merging with a selected target company that wishes to go public in a way other than through an IPO. The merger will provide the target company with funds from investors in addition to the listing. They have already invested in the SPAC but can withdraw from the investment if they disagree with the selection of the target company. The thesis deals with basic introduction of the SPAC and determination of its specifics such as the position of the sponsors, who select the target company. Subsequently, the whole process of the SPAC existence is described. Emphasis is placed on its formation, listing on the stock exchange, raising funds from investors and selecting a target company. A special section is then devoted to the target companies' merger forms, of which there are several from a legal perspective. The most widespread is the reverse merger, which is not known in the Czech legal system, so it was necessary to pay special attention to it within the work. There are many reasons for using SPACs from...

Ryšina, Petr ; Hurychová, Klára (advisor) ; Pelikán, Robert (referee)
The Legal Status of CEOs in the Corporate Governance of Czech and Foreign Joint Stock Companies Abstract CEOs play a crucial role in corporate governance, and understanding their legal status is fundamental to board organisation practices. This thesis aims to map the question of the legal status of CEOs, with a focus on regulatory approaches to CEOs and chairpersons of the board in different regions. The research established two main approaches to regulating CEO's legal status. On the one hand, the approach of Anglo-American countries is presented in this thesis by two main representatives - the UK and the USA. The common board organisational model is a unitary board model for which it is typical to combine management and supervisory powers in the board of directors. This is also reflected in the legal status of the CEO, as one of the main issues addressed is the CEO and chairperson duality and its consequences on corporate governance. On the other hand, the different approach taken by the countries in Continental Europe is analysed. Germany and Austria are introduced as countries known for a compulsory two-tier board model. In contrast to the Anglo-American world, the position of the CEO is not embedded in the countries of Continental Europe. The problem of CEO and chairperson duality is not present...

Šejko, Jaroslav ; Černá, Stanislava (advisor) ; Pelikán, Robert (referee)
Usury and Lesion in Business Law Realtions Abstract The main objective of the thesis is to investigate the issue of usury and lesion in business law realtions and to analyse the possibilities that entrepreneurs have to protect themselves from these undesirable phenomena by means of legal institutes of private law. Particular emphasis is placed on the relationship between the general private law remedies, which serve to correct the substantive incorrectness of legal actions, and the special provisions that exclude protection of entrepreneurs against usury and lesion. In the course of the thesis we will focus on the evaluation and analysis of these institutes and their possible impact on business entities in business dealings, including a comparison with foreign legislation (mainly German and Austrian) and practical recommendations. In its examination, the thesis is progressively divided into several subparts, with the first topic addressed being the protection of the weaker party, the definition of the situation and the reasons for the protection of the weaker party, including the ideological background. The emphasis in this chapter is on the entrepreneur as the weaker party and the possible abuse of the stronger position. In the second and third parts, I focus on the definition of the concepts of usury and...
Liability for failure to make a contract in business relations
Houžvičková, Adéla ; Čech, Petr (advisor) ; Pelikán, Robert (referee)
This thesis deals with one of the elements of the pre-contractual liability, which has been incorporated into the Civil Code under its Section 1729. Specifically, it concerns liability for unfairness, which consists in the deceptive inducement of a reasonable expectation of the conclusion of a contract and the subsequent termination of negotiation without the party having just cause. The subject of this thesis will also be an analysis of whether and how the mutual rights and obligations in the pre-contractual relationship will be modified if one of the contracting parties is an entrepreneur. Within the first part of my thesis, I subject the legal norm and its subparts (as I appoint them bellow) to a detailed analysis. Firstly, I analyse the prerequisites for applicability of the legal norm (i.e. the hypothesis of the legal norm), then the unlawful act itself, its nature and its manifestations (i.e. the disposition of the legal norm) and, lastly, the negative consequences that may eventually arise if one of the parties acts unlawfully. Crucial part of my thesis is constituted by chapters 3 - 6, in which I deal with the individual parts of the structure of the legal norm and then evaluate the general conclusions in terms of their applicability within the business environment. Within the 3rd chapter I...

Smetanová, Eva ; Černá, Stanislava (advisor) ; Pelikán, Robert (referee)
Insolvency of a Subsidiary Corporation and its Group Consequences Abstract The thesis deals with insolvency of a subsidiary corporation and its group consequences. The thesis focuses on description and analysis of consequences of subsidiary's insolvency putting emphasis on parent company and the way in which creditors of a subsidiary can protect their claims within the Czech corporation and insolvency law. The keynote of the thesis is the fact that the economic reality of operation of a corporate group collide with the separate entity principle and the doctrine of limited liability. First the thesis analyses the ways how the parent company exerts influence over the subsidiary, because on its relation to the subsidiary depend the consequences concerning the responsibility for the insolvency of the subsidiary. Then the concept of de facto directors and shadow directors is explained. This concept is based on the real economic direction of the corporation, so the creditors could reach the assets of parent company by this concept without using the ultimate means as the doctrine of piercing the corporate veil. Finally, the thesis describes particular institutes of Czech corporation and insolvency law that provides for consequences that the insolvency of the subsidiary could cause in the sphere of the parent...
