The main purpose of the prohibition on financing stated in Article 241 of the Commercial Law is to protect the creditors and minority shareholders of a joint stock company, but in the event of reorganization and reduction of the share capital, they are protected by other provisions of the Commercial Law. Therefore, the reorganisation and reduction of the share capital carried out in accordance with the provisions of the Commercial Law do not preclude the prohibition on financing.
