[sharechat] FFS Legal Challenge/Point of Order
I am waiting on a legal opinion on a number of matters
relating to the Fl etchers AGM on the 2nd.
I understand that FFS shareholders are an Interest Group under
Section 116 of the Companies Act and that this Interest Group has not
been given their rights I quote Section 117.
117. Alteration of shareholder rights---(1) A company must not take
action that affects the rights attached to shares unless that action has
been approved by a special resolution of each interest group.
If this is found to be true then under Sections
173 Representative Actions
169 Personal Actions by Shareholders
165 Derivative Actions
and 137 Directors Duty of Care
I belive that a "class" action can be taken against the
Directors of Fletcher Challenge with regard to their proposals.
Any other FFS shareholders want to join in this challenge? and
yes it might cost you a couple of bob to join in, to help defray the
costs. However you will get more satisfaction than being treated as a
poor relation at the AGM.
