The program is usually announced publicly for the first time when the program implementation agreement is concluded. This announcement usually adds a full copy of the system implementation agreement. Following this final approval of the system by the Tribunal, the system will be implemented by transferring all target actions to the tenderer (in accordance with a master-sharing transfer form) against payment of the system`s counterparty. The objective will then be the shareholders` vote on whether the programme should be approved at the Scheme meeting. The overall timing of an arrangement scheme is not prescribed by law, but the legal requirements are as follows: after the public announcement of the scheme, the objective (with the help of the tenderer) draws up a publication document called the « Scheme Booklet » to obtain the shareholders` agreement.
