Shareholders in this company should consider crystallising a capital loss in 2020/21 by selling their worthless shares, which they can achieve online by entering transaction details here. While this usually makes good economic sense, we recommend you seek professional advice before buying or selling securities, your accountant is probably the best person.

Two proceedings were commenced in relation to a company called Pacific Dairies Limited (the Company), which was created in order to undertake various investments in the dairy industry. Until 17 May 2016, the Company was listed , and traded, on the Australian Securities Exchange. The trial was heard by Justice Sifris from 16 to 18 September 2019. In the first proceeding, the Company sought to set aside a request made on 19 March 2019 by members of the Company for the directors to hold a general meeting of the Company. The Company argued that the meeting was not required and it had been called for an improper purpose. Justice Sifris observed that Courts should be hesitant to interfere with a minority shareholder's right to requisition a meeting unless it is called for some purpose ulterior to the passing of the resolutions contained in the requisition. His Honour did not ultimately need to deal with the issue or make the declarations sought, as there is a pending Annual General Meeting which is to take place in November 2019. At that meeting, the members would have the opportunity to decide the composition of the board of directors. In the second proceeding, a minority shareholder of the Company, William Clarke (Clarke) alleged that its affairs had been conducted in a manner contrary to the interests of the members as a whole or oppressive to, unfairly prejudicial to, or unfairly discriminatory against, a member or members. Specifically, Clarke contended that the Company had: (a) since at least 2015 achieved none of its goals and had regularly announced various initiatives, but none ever came even close to fruition; (b) paid (by way of the issue of shares and options) extremely high directors' fees in circumstances where its financial position was rapidly deteriorating and made selective share issues to directors and others without offering such issues to the shareholders at large; and (c) refused to call a meeting pursuant to a request made on 19 May 2019. Despite some concerns with the management and financial state of the Company, Justice Sifris disagreed and found that neither individually or collectively, the conduct amounted to oppression. His Honour stated that inadequate and poor stewardship, management and decisions by directors and any consequent dissatisfaction by shareholders does not of itself necessarily give rise to oppressive conduct. The issue of shares and options as payment for directors' fees and repayment for loans was not oppressive. The Company did not have cash resources available for payment and the price assigned to the securities was reasonable. It was preferable for the Company to issue equity to the directors rather than continue to accrue debt in circumstances where it was attempting to raise funds. Similarly, the failure to call a meeting pursuant to the 19 March 2019 request did not constitute oppression as a meeting called for the same purpose of determining the composition of the board of directors had taken place a short time earlier on 1 February 2019. In summary, Justice Sifris found that the conduct complained of could not be characterised as oppressive conduct. Both proceedings were dismissed.

17/04/2019

The company previously received a 249D notice from a group of shareholders. The board's view is as follows. The proposed resolution is improper, as it has retrospective operation. The proposed directors are Mr Ping Huang, Mr Tim Clarke and Mr Alan Mitchell. Mr Ping Huang and Mr Mitchell were proposed as directors by an earlier notice under section 249D. Mr Ping Huang and Mr Alan Mitchell were again proposed as directors at the General Meeting on 1 February 2019 and the vote against them was substantial. The notice is an abuse of process, is harassment of the Company and of its current directors and is not served for a proper purpose and therefore the Company has no obligation to comply with the notice. The board is in the process of initiating legal proceedings against those associated with the notice seeking orders setting aside the notice.

26/03/2019

The company has received a purported notice of requisition of general meeting of shareholders under section 249D of the Corporations Act 2001 from the same group of shareholders previously seeking a change of board.

The board is seeking legal advice on the matter.
