Introduction

“Corporate matters” refers to matters regarding the company’s: establishment, governing documents, corporate structure, shareholders and Board of Directors, capital structure and share issuances, and other related items.

Today, the standard answer is that a corporation’s purpose is to benefit its shareholders – academics speak of the “shareholder primacy norm,” and many talk of corporate managers’ task as “shareholder wealth maximization.”

The corporation is a legal entity that is separate and distinct from its owners. Under the law, corporations possess many of the same rights and responsibilities as individuals. They can enter contracts, loan and borrow money, sue and be sued, hire employees, own assets, and pay taxes.
