The company anticipates completing the transaction on Sept. 1. The transaction remains subject to approval by the Supreme Court of Bermuda, which the company expects to obtain at a hearing on Aug. 14, and to the satisfaction of certain other conditions.

Also at the special meetings, shareholders approved the creation of distributable reserves of Accenture plc, which the company expects will be approved by the Irish High Court after completion of the transaction.

Following the change in place of incorporation, Accenture will continue to be registered with the US Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) and be subject to the same SEC reporting requirements as it is today. The company’s shares will continue to trade on the New York Stock Exchange under the ticker symbol “ACN.”
