Abstract

The limited number of relevant decisions and awards on investors’ injury and compensation relied on both the distinction between the company and its shareholders and the rules on State responsibility to define the scope of injury of the majority shareholders, the minority shareholders and the company and the quantum of each claimant’s compensation. With respect to the scope of injury, despite rejecting the relevance of the Barcelona Traction rule, tribunals have consistently recognised the distinction be-tween majority shareholders, minority shareholders and the company and have allowed claims only for their respective direct injury. In contrast, with respect to the definition of the quantum of compensation, they have consistently relied on the rules on State responsibility but have often compensated shareholders for damage suffered by the company.
