10. That, in substitution of all existing authorities and subject to the passing of resolution 9, the Directors be generally empowered, in accordance with section 570 of the CA 2006, to allot equity securities (within the meaning of section 560 of the CA 2006) for cash pursuant to the authority conferred by resolution 9, as if section 561(1) of the CA 2006 did not apply to any such allotment.
For 2802 Against 1220
11. That the articles of association of the Company be amended by deleting in entirety the existing wording in article 1(D) and replacing the said article 1(D) with the following wording:
"Number of Directors
(D) The Directors shall be not less than two and not more than seven in number."
For 2102 Against 1930
As resolutions 1 to 9 were all ordinary resolutions and received at least 50 per cent of votes for, the resolutions were passed.
As resolutions 10 and 11 were special resolution and received less than 75 per cent of the votes for, they have not been passed.
Therefore, although the passing of resolution 9 means the company can resume selling shares, the fact resolution 10 was not passed means new shares can only be bought by existing shareholders on a pro rata basis. As this is impractical, the company will not be resuming the sale of shares.
As resolution 11 was not passed, the number of directors on the board will be five.
