Student thesis: Master's Thesis


The completion of this dissertation, which envisages the general theme of the holding companies and has as its sub-theme some questions related to the groups of companies regime, arises from the observation that in the business reality the creation of this type of company is a common practice. The application of the groups regime to this type of companies presents inevitable consequences that must be taken into account. We intend to address here some of those consequences. SGPS are the typical models of holding companies in the Portuguese legal system, but this type of companies does not exhaust the purposes and uses of holding companies We therefore propose fundamentally to demonstrate that the group regime provided for in the Código das Sociedades Comerciais is fully capable of regulating this a holding company. Nevertheless, the regime itself still presents some questions that deserve reflection in order to render it clearer.
