Legal Structure
Unilever operates as a single business entity. NV and PLC are the two parent companies of the Unilever Group, having separate legal identities and separate stock exchange listings for their shares. To ensure unity of governance and management, they have the same Directors and are linked by agreements. The Equalisation Agreement regulates the mutual rights of the two sets of shareholders, including dividends. There is a one -for-one equivalence between the shares.
