Equity transactions are transactions and transfers between a company and its owners. These will typically be capital contributions, repayments, distributions through dividends and group contributions, mergers and demergers, purchases of own shares, conversions etc. A distinctive feature of equity transactions is that they are governed by a number of different laws which are not necessarily coordinated and are constantly changing.
