Will a shareholder’s failure to serve adequate notice on the company result in dismissal of his application to commence statutory derivative action?
Section 732 of the Companies Ordinance (Cap. 622) (the “CO”) allows a member of a company, with leave of the Court, to bring proceedings on behalf of the company in respect of any misconduct committed against the company. Under s.733(3) of the CO, a member of a company must serve 14 days’ written notice on the company of his intention to apply for leave to commence a statutory derivative action under s.732, and under s.733(4)(b) must set out the “reasons for that intention” in the written notice. The rationale of this notice requirement is to give the directors of a company a chance to consider a response to the complaints set out in the notice. If the subject company is willing to pursue the complaints on its own, a leave application by the shareholder will become redundant, meaning that no further legal costs will be incurred or wasted in dealing with the issue of whether leave ought to be granted.
