Not at this stage. The class action has been filed as an Open Class Action. This means that all persons who acquired CBA shares during the relevant period are group members in the class action, irrespective of whether or not they have signed a Funding Agreement. Those who wish to participate in any settlement of the class action will likely be asked to register their claims at an appropriate stage of the proceeding. However, there are reasons why you may wish to consider signing a funding agreement in advance of any court ordered registration step.
