“Property certificate” stands for capital markets instruments with equal nominal value representing a specific independent section (bağımsız bölüm), or a certain area of an independent section (bağımsız bölüm) of a property project, where the issue price of these certificates is used to finance an ongoing or upcoming property project.
Similar Examples of Property Certificates in the World
Property derivatives seen in different examples in England, Australia and the United States of America are similar to the property certificates that are intended to be rendered active in practice in Turkey, again. A typical property derivative transaction is the means to achieve securitization based on property via income, interest or swap.
As is noted in international agreements, it is crucial to make clear the meanings and definitions of aviation terms. So that the subject of this newsletter is clear, it is of the essence to properly explain the term ‘sky.’
The term ‘sky’ that corresponds to “Luftraum,” in German, and “Espace aérien,” in French, is defined as the area lying above the earth’s surface, which is layered with air stratum. Although the term, ‘airspace’ is a much more accurate definition to describe the same area using a three-dimensional platform, in Turkish aviation practice, the term, ‘sky’ is preferred, rather than, ‘airspace’ to describe that specific area.
On 6 December 2016, the European Commission (“Commission”) has approved the acquisition of all shares of LinkedIn by Microsoft (“Transaction”), subject to conditions. As a result of the Transaction, Microsoft acquired the sole control of LinkedIn. The Commission’s decision is conditional upon the compliance with a series of commitments to be applied by Microsoft in order to preserve competition between professional social networks in Europe.
The Transaction was also notified in the United States, Canada, Brazil and South Africa, and was cleared by these countries´ competition authorities. After receiving clearance from the Commission, on 8 December 2016, Microsoft and LinkedIn announced that Microsoft’s acquisition of LinkedIn has officially closed. Microsoft, by acquiring LinkedIn, aims to expand the standalone business of LinkedIn, and to integrate LinkedIn’s services and products within its own offering, enriching both the Microsoft and LinkedIn user experience.
In a recent effort to foster increased public offering activity, the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) announced on June 29, 2017 that it will permit all companies to submit voluntary draft registration statements relating to initial public offerings (IPOs), certain follow-on offerings and national securities exchange listings for non-public review. This process will be available for nearly all offerings made in the first year after a company has entered the public reporting system. This benefit takes effect today, July 10, 2017.
So, why is this an important change?
