Author: admin  //  Category: Bez kategorii

The parties argued the argument in V B Rangaraj v. V B Gopalakrishnan. In retaliation, the applicants disputed that the stay of the case was not enforced, since it was the private company and the company concerned was a public company. The Supreme Court of Gujarat appealed to the applicant and stated that the pre-emption agreement, which is not included in the statutes, was not applicable.

Management of the company in general, the board of directors is responsible for the day-to-day running of the company, the statutes imposing only certain decisions of the shareholders. As part of a shareholders` pact, shareholders can take back control of the company by requiring directors to seek shareholder approval for certain decisions. Restrictions on board decision-making can be as strict or lenient as shareholders require. A company`s by-law included a clause giving directors the power to refuse permission for a proposed transfer of shares to the company. At a board meeting, directors were reported to transfer shares to a third party.

No deferral form was submitted for board approval and no formal decision was made to approve the deferrals, but none of the directors objected. All directors appeared to have treated the transfers as “settled cases” and it was agreed that they had unanimously approved and approved the transfers, subject to the submission of transfer forms to the company. Shortly after the meeting, one of the directors (including a shareholder) claimed to have come across old documents. They reminded him that many years earlier, the shareholders had agreed that the shares of the company would not be transferred to a new owner, unless they were first offered to other shareholders – that is, the shares of the company were raised when the “pre-emption rights” were transferred. However, none of the boards of directors or shareholders recalled the right of pre-emption at the time of the board meeting. Over the years, several other transfers of shares had been authorized by the House, without taking into account the forgotten pre-emption rights and without violating them. The Director/Shareholder, who had found the old documents, raised the possibility that the transfers were not valid because the pre-emption rights had not been respected, and at the next board meeting, when rubber transfer forms were presented to the Board of Directors, the directors stated that they refused to authorize the transfers. One of its reasons is that the transferred shares were not offered first to other shareholders, as requested by the previously forgotten agreements. In the resulting action, the Director/Shareholder argued that the transfers should be cancelled because they were contrary to the right of pre-emption. If his argument was successful, it would give him control of the company.

The other party argued that the Estoppel legal doctrine applied by convention. This doctrine says that if the parties share a common but false assumption that a number of facts apply, one of them cannot go back and try to reverse actions based on that assumption, if it was unacceptable for them to do so – they will be prevented from doing so. The Director/Shareholder stated that the Estoppel doctrine did not apply because the directors had not acted “intentionally” as if there was no right of pre-emption at the time of transmission, but “without knowing it” – because they had all forgotten that these rights existed. The Court of Appeal held that the director/shareholder was not dependent on the right of pre-emption: regardless of whether the directors had forgotten the
