In a disclosure this month, the board of directors of the local bourse operator proposed five different amendments.

The proposals include deleting the second paragraph of Article V, Section 6 of the PSE’s by-laws. That specific passage prohibited the board of directors from engaging in contracts that exceeded 15% of a company’s total assets without securing approval from two-thirds of shareholders.

The next proposal specified that independent directors shall comprise a third of a board of directors, aligning with existing rules and regulations of the PSE.

The third proposal looked to delete the clause that restricts a trading participant from intervening, direct or indirect, in the management, operation, administration, and control of any other trading participant.

The PSE defined a trading participant as those admitted by the local bourse to trade and use its trading facilities. A participant needs to hold a securities dealer license granted by the Securities and Exchange Commission.

In connection, the fourth proposal sought to delete all references to “natural person trading participants.
