Angry, little people fight back

A group of minority shareholders of Magnus Energy shot down all the resolutions put forward at the recent annual general meeting on Oct 30. They ousted three of the directors and blocked the reappointment of the external auditor as well as the mandate to issue shares to raise funds or pay director’s fees.


On Nov 7, these shareholders, who hold a total stake of about 10%, sent Magnus Energy’s board an extraordinary general meeting requisition notice.

And that’s not all, they are suing past and present directors for breaches of general and fiduciary duty.

Wow. These are really very angry shareholders. Can’t blame them. before the shares were suspended from trading in Aug this year, the share price was 0.1 cent. They were at a high of $3.75 in February 2013.
