ACT 125

Section 158. Register and index of members.

(1) Every company shall keep a register of its members and enter therein—

    (a) the names, addresses, the number of the identity card issued under the National Registration Act 1959 if any, nationality and any other relevant information and particulars of the members, and in the case of a company having a share capital a statement of the shares held by each member, distinguishing each share by its number, if any, or by the number, if any, of the certificate evidencing the members' holding and of the amount paid or agreed to be considered as paid on the shares of each member;

    (b) the date at which the name of each person was entered in the register as a member;

    (c) the date at which any person who ceased to be a member during the previous seven years so ceased to be a member; and

    (d) in the case of a company having a share capital, the date of every allotment of shares to members and the number of shares comprised in each allotment.

(2) Notwithstanding anything in subsection (1) where the company has converted any of its shares into stock and given notice of the conversion to the Registrar, the company shall alter the register to show the amount of stock or number of stock units held by each member instead of the number of shares and the particulars relating to shares specified in paragraph (1)(a).

(3) Notwithstanding anything in subsection (1) a company may keep the names and particulars relating to persons who have ceased to be members of the company separately and the names and particulars relating to former members need not be supplied to any person who applies for a copy of the register unless he specifically requests the names and particulars of former members. (4) The register of members shall be prima facie evidence of any matters inserted therein as required or authorized by this Act.

Index of members of company

(5) Every company having more than fifty members shall, unless the register of members is in such a form as to constitute in itself an index, keep an index in convenient form of the names of the members and shall, within fourteen days after the date on which any alteration is made in the register of members, make any necessary alteration in the index.

(6) The index shall in respect of each member contain a sufficient indication to enable the account of that member in the register to be readily found.

(7) If default is made in complying with this section the company and every officer of the company who is in default shall be guilty of an offence against this Act.

Penalty: Two thousand ringgit. Default penalty.
